"Fortnite" may be gracing Nintendo's latest console.
The world's obsession over Fortnite: Battle Royale seems nowhere close to coming to a close, as new updates and versions of the game continue to be developed over at Epic Games. In that same vein, a strongly hinted at rumor shows the free-to-play survival game coming to one of the hottest consoles on the market.
Accoding to Hypebeast, Fortnite will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch console, and the new port will be announced sometime at this year's E3 conference.
Now these aren't just baseless rumors, there's actually some credibility to the theory. For instance, a leaked outline of Nintendo's announcements for this year's conference, which include the new version of Fortnite alongside a new Punch-Out!! title, as well as other announcements. We'll have to wait until the conference is here in order to confirm the validity of the list, but the announcements are looking pretty decent if it's true.
Secondly, a job posting from Iron Galaxy, the developer that was responsible for porting Skyrim to the Switch, mentioned in the opening that they were responsible for the "technically suberb" Skyrim and Fortnite ports. Considering the Switch version doesn't officially exist yet, that would be a very strange thing to brag about having done if you're a serious game company.
Of course this move is surprising to no one, as the Switch has sold like crazy since it launched last year. And considering that Fortnite has already been ported to mobile, the Switch shouldn't be too much of a stretch.
