Fortnite Nintendo Switch Rumors Flare Up, Hinting At Exclusive Content
Fortnite has been grabbing hold of the gaming world as of late, with no intention of letting go anytime soon. The popular Epic Games title features two different modes, Save the World and Battle Royale, the latter being free-to-play and crushing anyone in its path. That being said, there’s one console that has been left off of the party bus. However, the Fortnite Nintendo Switch rumors have been flaring up recently, some of which point to some exclusive goodies.
Twitter user LeakyPanda recently took to the platform to release a bit of information they had regarding a Fortnite Nintendo Switch port. According to them, this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo is where Epic plans to reveal the game on the portable console. It is also mentioned that the title will support cross-platform play on the Switch.
While this is all speculation at this point in time, we can’t help but wonder why the studio wouldn’t bring the popular game to the platform. After all, it would only make the title even more successful. It would also provide the developers an opportunity to create some exclusive content, which is what the rumors are suggesting is going to happen. However, it won’t be in the Battle Royale mode everyone would expect Nintendo-themed items to appear.
After debating we have decided to release a portion of the Fortnite x Switch information we have – the statements we consider to be the most reliable.
This could be part of Nintendo's E3 Showcase so we are arning you in advance in case you want to mute or unfollow. 16:15 CT. https://t.co/2lPaBVsoVD

Instead, they state that the exclusive content would be coming to the Save the World portion of the title. Of course, that isn’t to say we wouldn’t see some sweet Nintendo items in the Battle Royale shop. Who wouldn’t want to roll around as a mustachioed man with a sentient cap? Better yet, tunics! The possibilities are nearly endless, so it would be smart on Epic’s part to capitalize on that momentum. In other Fortnite news, Season 4 is just around the corner, with meteors crashing down on the island. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for players.
Fortnite is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and iOS devices. If it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch, we should know more before or during E3, which is set for June.
