Want Fortnite on Switch?

In other words, the stars seem perfectly aligned for Fortnite to release on Nintendo Switch.

Epic Games has already releasedFortnite on the Xbox One, PlayStation4, Mac, PC, and even iOS, but there is one system we've still been waiting to play the smash-hit shooter on: Nintendo Switch. This latest one comes to us from the South Korea's Game Rating and Administration Committee, which has apparently approved the Switch version of Fortnite for release.

The co-op sandbox survival games was released in July previous year, but its popularity really soared when a Battle Royale mode was added.

A list of E3 games also leaked on 4chan showing the Switch version of Fortnite, with the user claiming it's part of the E3 showroom display planning. We can all dream.

You can clearly see Smith say "I thought we were ahead" to James after the buzzer sounded. Oof. "No, I knew we were tied", he told reporters.

E3 2018 happens from June 12 to 14 at the L.A. Convention Center.

"A source familiar with Epic Games' plans, speaking anonymously to protect their career, also told Kotaku earlier this week that Fortnite would be coming to Switch". The ultra-popular battle royale game also features cross-play between the various platforms its available on, with the exception of PlayStation 4 to Xbox One gameplay.

Of the names, Fortnite is the biggest title there in terms of popularity at the moment, and according to an anonymous source from Kotaku, the game will be heading to the Nintendo Switch.

A single image has been doing the rounds on popular image boards that purports to be related to the stand set up for Nintendo's E3 booth.

The only question now is when will it be revealed - is Epic going to handle the announcement itself, or will Nintendo reveal it during its E3 showcase? We should get Paladins and Dragon Ball FighterZ ports as well as a new Mario Tennis game.
