One of the big announcement at E3 2018, at least, among those that surfaced before the event, has been Fortnite Battle Royale on Nintendo Switch. Although during E3 2018 the devs have been presented some outstanding games, the announcement that looks like it’s going to capture all the attention is the one regarding Fortnite on Switch.
Fortnite on Nintendo Switch reached 2 million downloads
With the release of Fortnite Battle Royale on Nintendo Switch, it was clear that downloads were going to increase, but few could have imagined how fast it would reach a couple of million copies.
Nintendo itself has confirmed that in less than a day, Fortnite on Switch has reached two million downloads, an amount that reflects the interest in the game.
Reggie Fils-Aime is the head of the Nintendo-US, a very peculiar type of guy who has not hesitated to say that the launch of Fortnite has been particularly useful.
Reggie says these numbers speak volumes about the power of the franchise, the desire of Nintendo Switch users, and the ability to play the game where and when they want to.
Not everything has been so confident in the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale on Nintendo Switch
Users of the Nintendo hybrid can play with, and against, PC, Xbox One, Mac, and mobile phone users thanks to the cross-game capability.
The game uses an Epic Games account for this, but there are certain limitations.
If your account is linked to PlayStation 4, you won’t be able to log in to Nintendo Switch, as Sony is blocking this possibility.
Fortunately, the change is simple and does not in any way detract from the excellent performance that Epic’s game is having on the “Big N” hybrid.
The Fortnite Battle Royale success on Nintendo Switch is colossal at the moment, and most probably will remain that way.
