It's also a great move for Nintendo to embrace such a huge 3rd party phenomenon, as their strategy of filling the Switch with tons of games continues.
After various updates showing information on it appeared in the form of E3 leaks, a South Korean rating and eShop information, Simon Aarons has used Shogun and a tool to find information regarding the game's official Nintendo Switch eShop listing.
The Daily Mail reports that one school in Bristol said in a statement: 'We've heard some of our children, including in Year 3, are playing a game online called Fortnite ... if your child is playing this game talk to them and make sure you know what they are doing'.
However, it's not uncommon for kids to sometimes get worse grades here and there, so the parents didn't imagine at the time that it was linked to a video game.
The multiplayer shooting game's most popular format sees 100 people jump out of a plane to land on an island and fight until only one is left. Both Xbox and PlayStation allow cross-platform play with both mobile and PC, but not with each other.
At this point a Fortnite Switch release is basically a given after numerous leaks. And it's coming out immediately, at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning.
Fortnite has quickly become the year's biggest game phenomenon, quickly surpassing rival battle royale shooter Player Unknown Battlegrounds in popularity and bringing in a ton of revenue.
However, even better is the fact that the game is now available to play for free on the Nintendo eShop, and will be available to play on the system today at 10am PT/1pm ET. It's a complex, silly, and - most importantly - free game that's available on almost every platform: PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Other items of note are that the game will of course support add-on content, with V-Bucks and the Wingman Starter Pack being prominently listed.
