Going right into E3 2018, one of the most persistent rumors that Nintendo was anticipated to share was the news that that the massively-popular Fortnite would be coming to the system. Sure , the game launched that afternoon for the machine, and the Switch player foundation for Fortnite is currently off to a very great beginning, according to Nintendo.
Nintendo has revealed that just 1 day following the game’s surprise release on Nintendo Switch, Fornite has surpassed over two million downloads in the system when it debuted in the middle of the company’s Nintendo Direct.
While this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that Fortnite has a player base today in the hundreds of millions, the game seems to be off to a incredibly good beginning on Nintendo Switch later only 1 day, and it’s only certain to grow in the coming months. The Switch variant, provided by Epic Games, also features crossplay using Xbox One, PC, Mac, and iOS users, though notably is not able to be encouraged against those around PS4.
Fortnite is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, iOS, and also will also be coming to Android sometime after this summer.
