Fortnite is out today for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch getting Netflix and You Tube apps suggest Best Buy 'error'

The leak was first reported by Variety, which cited a tweet from Simon Aarons, a data miner who saw the release date on Nintendo's eShop.

Fortnite's most popular mode is called Battle Royale and sees players take on 99 others online to be the last person standing in a battle for survival.

The Switch is a great platform for the title, what with its console/handheld hybrid status and the popularity of playing Fortnite anywhere and everywhere, on seemingly any device that can possibly play a video game.

Based on the screenshot Aarons shared on Monday, Fortnite will launch on the Switch on June 12th, 2018, which just so happens to be the day that Nintendo will stream its E3 event. Don't worry, it's still free as only Save the World requires you to pay - that is if you don't purchase the completely optional seasonal Battle Pass.

Lopetegui to replace Zidane at Real Madrid
Lopetegui's playing career included a spell at Real, although he made just one appearance and was mainly loaned out to Las Palmas. They also scored 36 goals, and their form means they are one of the favourites ahead of the tournament in Russian Federation .

Video game addiction is a serious issue. (2044MB, to be exact.) It specifies this will be the free-to-play, 100-plaer battle royale. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen.

Regardless, Fortnite's battle royale is a great addition to the Nintendo Switch catalog as it brings some intense competitive play to the system. And it's coming out immediately, at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning. Over the years, we've heard multiple stories of people who have literally played video games until they died, and others who let their lives crumble around them because they're unable to pull away from the screen.

The big money right now is on a "and you can download it now" announcement on the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct Livestream. It also notes that a Wingman Starter Pack and V-Bucks add-ons will be available. Only Xbox One, PC, Mac and iOS confirmed for Switch Fortnite crossplay.

Are there any Nintendo skins for Fortnite on Switch? But what happens when you get addicted?
