Fortnite on Switch Releases Tomorrow According to Latest Leak

Too many leaks in this ship.

Fortnite could be coming to the Ninendo Switch as early as tomorrow during or after Nintendo's E3 2018 Direct. At least according to the metadata for Fortnite's Nintendo eShop listing a dataminer uncovered today.

According to Simon Aarons, a well known dataminer, the metadata for Fortnite's eshop listing says that the game will launch on the Nintendo Switch on June 12, 2018 which is the day of the Nintendo E3 Direct. This would give credence to the rumors that not only will Epic and Nintendo announce the massively popular Battle Royale game on the Switch, but that it will be a day of announcement surprise release.

This is actually the second leak about the game this week with hip hop star Chance the Rapper tweeting that Fortnite will be coming to the Switch late at night earlier this week. Prior to that Fortnite on Switch was leaked via a showfloor listing leak that looks to be increasingly accurate considering recent announcements.
