Fortnite Fans get out your wallets
Fortnite-Themed Nintendo Switch Coming Soon!
Nintendo has paired up with Epic Games to produce a limited-edition Nintendo Switch console with Fortnite themed color and art. They have also included a few extra bonuses to entice anyone looking to purchase a Switch, and play Fortnite too!
The Fortnite Nintendo Switch is slotted for an October 30 release in Europe. If you live in Australia or New Zealand, you will have to wait until November 6 to get your hands on this collaboration. So far Nintendo has only announced these two dates.
Nintendo Switch Fortnite Bundle Contents
- Nintendo Switch console with custom-designed Fortnite art on the backside
- A yellow Joy-Con and a blue Joy-Con (the Left controller is yellow and the Right Controller is Blue)
- A Fortnite themed Nintendo Switch docking station
- A code for the Wildcat Outfit skin
- A Sleek Strike Back Bling in two styles
- 2000 V-Bucks which is the in-game currency for Fortnite
- And of course, it comes in a Nintendo Switch box with exclusive Fortnite Art
The price has not been announced yet. These collaboration bundles typically cost as much as the regular console price so around €320. There is a chance that the price could go up as resellers and collectors are fast to act and buy up all the stock. 2000 V-Bucks cost around €20 so if you are looking to play Fortnite there is definitely added value in this bundle. As most people know, Fortnite itself is free to play so the game is also "included" in this bundle and pre-installed on the console.
