Fortnite On Switch Has Built-In Voice Chat, No App Required

Nintendo Switch Hackers Being Banned From Online Services: Reports Fortnite Coming to Nintendo Switch Tomorrow
Wayne Curry | 13 June, 2018, 07:21

Nintendo announced the news at E3 2018, the annual video game industry trade show, in Los Angeles.

You can play Fortnite on a PC, switch to a MacBook, move to an iPhone, and play later on an Xbox One, then in the morning play on your Nintendo Switch, all on the same account. While cross-play and player progression between platforms is largely available for Fortnite on MOST platforms, those that've ever played on PS4 can not use their account on the Nintendo Switch. And if you play any games online on PS4, you do. You can download it from the Microsoft Store here. And the game held a 16.3 percent market share among its competitors in the widely-popular battle royale game genre, more than Battlegrounds or H1Z1, according to data aggregated by Newzoo in March. The game hit mobile platforms some time ago, and since the Switch is built using a number of mobile-oriented components, porting Fortnite to the Switch seemed like an obvious win.

The game will not have any Switch-specific features at launch, though developers are looking at items, such as touch screen support, for future updates.

It has also been reported that cross-play will be available too, although it will only be with some platforms. Previously Sony had explained that their decision to not allow cross-play was to "protect their players' security", but they have chosen to not make any comment on why they're deciding to stay out of such an inclusive platform game.

And while cross-platform play has been the key to the battle royale mode, Sony's always been a bit of a stick in the mud on this one.

Fortnite Switch will be playable with other gamers on Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile.

In addition to "Fortnite", Nintendo announced several other new games, including "Super Mario Party", "DaemonXMachina", and a new story pack for "Xenoblade Chronicles 2", all coming in the next 12 months.

So it may well cost you V-Bucks to send items to your buddies.
