With season 2 of Fortnite Battle Royale wrapping up soon, Epic Games and People Can Fly recently revealed the season 3 Battle Pass as well as exclusive items, challenges, and more for fans of the sandbox survival title to drool over. While PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One fans are currently the only ones able to look forward to the aforementioned content, it looks as though that all could change, as the game could be coming to Nintendo Switch.
This potential port of Epic Games’ popular title to the Big N’s newest system has been inferred by a recent tweet from the journalist and self-styled “industry insider,” Marcus Sellars, who simply wrote “Fortnite = Nintendo Switch” on his personal Twitter account. Those who followed up to ask him if it’s something he simply wants to happen or if he has received information on the subject were told by Sellars that he has “heard stuff” from a reliable source that the game could be set for availability on Switch around August or September of this year.

There’s no doubt that plenty of Nintendo Switch owners would jump at the chance to play Fortnite, as many fans have petitioned Epic Games in the past to try and make the sandbox survival title a reality on the system. As a matter of fact, Donald Mustard, the worldwide creative director of Epic Games, has already expressed interest in bringing the game to the Big N’s hybrid console, stating that “hopefully” we will see a port in the future.
Taking all of this into consideration, it looks as if Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch would be a dream come true for many gaming fans, especially with the product’s cartoony art style feeling like something the Big N would be a part of. Even major celebrities want the game on the system, with the Grammy-award winning musician Chance the Rapper having called for a Fortnite port for the Nintendo Switch. So, if the information from Sellars’ source is correct, then Nintendo Switch owners will be able to dive off of the Battle Bus soon enough.
Fortnite is available now in early access for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
