E3 2018: Watch Fortnite Pro-Am Celebrity Tournament Livestream Here

This makes Fortnite available on every major platform.

Since the release of the game Fortnite last July, it's become hands-down the most popular online game of its kind. Nintendo has previously tried to implement voice chat on Switch, though in classic Nintendo fashion it was via a weird, unwieldy system that required you to use an adapter to hook yourself up into both your Switch and your phone to use an app to chat with other players.

Nintendo also announced new games for its console Switch, including a mech-battle action game called Daemon X Machina 2019 and a fantasy strategy game called Fire Emblem: Three Houses, out next spring.

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.

Though the error message only refers to an unspecified "platform", it would appear the culprit is the PlayStation 4.

A recent leak suggested that Fortnite Nintendo Switch would be revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation.

It's finally happening: "Fortnite" is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

And while cross-platform play has been the key to the battle royale mode, Sony's always been a bit of a stick in the mud on this one.

The Nintendo Switch Fortnite listing says the game will be an over 2GB download.

As far as we can tell, this limitation also extends to Epic Games accounts tied to PlayStation Network accounts: since PSN-tied Epic accounts can't be used on Xbox One, it stands to reason that they can't be used on the new Nintendo Switch version either.

In the United States, the Fortnite addiction is equally as bad with many parents trying to figure out how to keep their kids away from the battle royale.
