E3 2018: New Switch Version Of Fortnite Has Everything You Need Except Smooth Framerate
(GameSpot DS News)

The battle royale juggernaut Fortnite expanded its reach further by launching on Nintendo Switch soon after it was officially announced during Nintendo`s E3 presentation. It`s free on the Eshop and has all the features of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions (except for the co-op Save the World mode--it`s Battle Royale only).

Certain visual anomalies like texture pop-in are noticeable, but don`t really affect gameplay like the lower framerate does. This makes firefights and building intricate structures harder to manage, especially when things get hectic.
