The battle royale is coming to Switch.

News by Kat Bailey, .

The worst kept secret of the show is finally out: Fortnite is coming to the Nintendo Switch. It will be available starting today at 10am.

Like every other version, it will put Nintendo fans in a battle royale in which they try to be the last person standing. But of course, the big hook is that you can build stuff, which is arguably the secret ingredient that has made it the most popular game in the world.

Not much else to say about Fortnite on Switch. You know the drill. Beware though: It's tough to imagine Nintendo's infrastructure holding up under the onslaught it's about to endure.

    If your Fortnite account has been accessed by a PS4 at ANY point, you can't login on the Switch. You have to start a new account.

    This is absolutely ridiculous on Sony's part.

    Already love playing this in handheld mode. It needs motion controls like Splatoon 2 though. I keep moving the screen a little or the pro control thinking I'm going to kill someone only to shoot the wall.
