The rumors are true, battle royale fans; the hotly anticipated Fortnite is now available for the Nintendo Switch.

The schoolgirl, nine, was taken to rehab after she became addicted to the online multiplayer game, Fortnite. "To play Fortnite on Switch, please create a new account".

Epic Games has yet to officially confirm the existence of Fortnite on Switch, but at this point, it would be shocking not to see the game tomorrow. Both Xbox and PlayStation allow cross-platform play with both mobile and PC, but not with each other. Hopefully if they figured it out for Fortnite, that means I will soon no longer be in danger of strangling myself in several wires if I want to play Splatoon 2 with my friends. Previously leaked specifically on the Nintendo eShop, the Wingman Starter Pack looks to be purchasable on every platform that Fortnite is available for.

What you need to do is head on over to the "Connected" section of your Epic Games account, and unlink the Nintendo Switch from your account. And with absolutely zero barriers to entry, you should definitely download this free-to-play battle royale game.

Fortnite has just been unveiled for Nintendo Switch along with the surprise announcement that there is no release date because it's available to download right now. However, the gravity of the situation came to the forefront when the father found her sitting on an urine-soaked cushion while playing the game.

Although theoretically one could unlink their PSN to free up their Epic account for the Switch, many players have reported this to also be a dead end as they were denied in their attempt to do so.

The part of "Fortnite" that's so incredibly popular is the Battle Royale mode, which pits 100 real players against each other in a kill-or-be-killed scenario.
