Nintendo Switch adds Fortnite edition in UK. What about US release?
There’s a new version of the Nintendo Switch coming out soon, and it’s solely based around the battle royale game Fortnite.
What’s going on:
Nintendo will be releasing a special edition console based around Fortnite, Nintendo Life reports.
The console will have yellow and blue controllers with a docking station that includes popular Fortnite skins.
The Switch tablet itself will have characters on the back of it, too.
Fortnite will come immediately installed in the game. You will also receive 2,000 V-bucks and some exclusive items, according to The Verge.
The system has only been announced for Europe, Australia and New Zealand so far.
Will there be a U.S. version?
There’s no word on a U.S. version. But it could be a popular item, The Verge reports.
“This could be a popular holiday item, though — particularly for Fortnite obsessives who can’t play the iOS version on the go any more.”
Nintendo Switch new model
There’s been some talk about Nintendo releasing a new Switch model for the holiday season to compete with the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X.
The system would likely have 4K graphics and computer-like power. There’s some reporting that the system would come with upgraded games, too.
