How to get Fortnite on Nintendo Switch and can you do crossplay?

The rumors and speculation regarding Fortnite Battle Royale coming to the Nintendo Switch have ramped up considerably ahead of the E3 2018 Nintendo press conference that is scheduled to take place Tuesday, June 12th at 9 AM PST.

In the end, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, one of Fortnite and Twitch's most popular streamers, and his partner DJ Marshmello, won the main event and split a $1 million prize donated to charities of their choice. The Epic game is now available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and iOS, in addition to the new Nintendo console. I found that I'm a more accurate shot with the game's assault rifle on the DualShock 4's control sticks than the Switch's Joy-Cons, but it's a better experience than playing on my iPhone. Epic Games also manages to keep the sometimes monotonous nature of battle royale games fresh by continually adding new updates - recently, a vehicle-like shopping cart and a new thermal rifle.

That's because Sony chose to block cross-play between the PS4 and the Switch.

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 World Cup will culminate in the first Fortnite World Cup in late 2019.

Many people argued that the practice was inhumane. "If we are pro-family, we need to recognize this". He then turned his attention to Sessions using a Bible passage to justify the policy.

Qualifications for the World Cup will be merit-based and no team slots will be sold.

Microsoft has been open to the idea of cross-play between the Xbox One and PS4, and Nintendo is clearly open to cross-play with every other platform considering they allow it.

This is also flawless for the developer of the game, Epic Games, which is trying as hard as it can to expand its number of players. Sure, getting into my Nintendo account was easy enough, but my Epic Games account was a different story. But for whatever reason Sony refuses to play friendly with other consoles.

According to Epic Games, the World Cup itself will focus on Solos and Duos.
