At Nintendo’s E3 2018 event, the company verified that Fortnite is offered for the Nintendo Switch as a digital download through the Nintendo eShop. Now the business has announced Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch has hit two million downloads in less than 24 hours. An enormous number by any stretch. More so when you consider that the Nintendo Switch has actually been out for a little more than a year with an install base that’s no place near the PS4 or Xbox One.
” Fortnite’s launch went exceptionally well– we had more than 2 million downloads in less than 24 hours,” Reggie Fils-Aime, President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America, informed Polygon in an interview at E3 2018. ” I believe that speaks to the power of the franchise, the engagement of our gamers and the resonance of having the ability to play it anytime, anywhere.”
Likewise remember that this is the Fortnite Battle Royale mode and not Save the World, which Epic Games has no plans of giving the Nintendo Switch. It’s the video game’s cooperative experience and is presently in paid early gain access to on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It makes good sense considering most of Epic’s efforts for Fortnite have gone to the fight royale part.
“We have no prepare for Save the World on Switch,” an agent for Epic Games told Gamespot.
Fornite Save the World is the mode the video game released with in July 2017 permitting cooperative play against crowds of AI-controlled opponents. Fortnite was launched as a paid early gain access to game with strategies to be free-to-play when Epic feels it is prepared.
For what it’s worth, we ‘d suggest waiting it out prior to troubling with Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch. It doesn’t look as good as it could be despite sporting a strong frame rate.
