Fortnite releases on Nintendo Switch today

Hosted at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, the tournament saw 50 pro Fortnite players paired with 50 celebrities - competing for their share of a $3 million charity prize pool and a Golden Pickaxe trophy.

Fortnite has proven itself to be extremely popular and profitable on the iOS family. This weird limitation means you could end up losing out on the progress you've made should you accidentally log in to the Switch version while primarily playing on PS4 or vice versa.

It turns out Fortnite players on Switch need not turn to the Switch Online mobile app up to talk to their friends in the game.

We already know Ninja's track record with the game, but as it turns out, Marshmello definitely saves his hide a few times during playthrough.

Fortnite is out now on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and mobile devices.

Epic Games does an awesome job of constantly adding new items, in-game events, and gameplay modes into Fortnite on a regular basis across all the platforms. Unfortunately, the game is now having matchmaking issues, likely due to the influx of players.

It was no surprise that Fortnite on PS4 wouldn't be cross-play enabled with every other version, but something odd is going on with Epic Games accounts.

Download the Epic Games Launcher on PC or Mac, or if you have an invite, download the game on iOS/Xbox.

Link your Switch account to an Epic Games account. At least, from those who wish to play on the Switch.
