Epic Games is "Interested" in Bringing Fortnite to the Nintendo Switch

Perfect for playing while you're under siege by enemy hordes.

We all carry around an internal list of games we want to see on the Nintendo Switch, right? How many of you have "Fortnite" on your list? If you're one of them, good news: Your wish may come true sooner or later.

Fortnite, a co-op survival game, is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Yesterday, "ahyperteddybear" asked Epic Games' creative director, Donald Mustard, if there's any chance the game will come to Switch as well. Mustard said he's "interested" in seeing that happen, and "Hopefully we do that at some point."

Fortnite on the Switch would be nice, but I'm personally a bit more interested in its battle royale spin-off. Death, delivered fresh from a little console that makes cute snapping noises when you slide in its controller units. What a beautiful thought.
