4chan e3 2018 nintendo switch leak

Leaked information suggests that "Fortnite" is coming to the Nintendo Switch and that it will be announced during the Electronics Entertainment Expo next month.

The scuttlebutt around the Switch port started yesterday afternoon, when Fortnite showed up in a photographed list of Switch game logos that were purportedly being printed for display at Nintendo's E3 booth.

Other games being featured along with Fortnite are; Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, FIFA 19, Killer Queen Black, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Paladins: Champions of the Realm, Overcooked 2, and Mario Tennis Aces.

Rumors of a Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite have been percolating since Battle Royale reached peak popularity earlier this year.

Fortnite is already available on almost every platform imaginable, including mobile. Following rumors that this may be happening in the future, both Epic Games and Nintendo have been very tight-lipped about it. The game is already available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and iOS, with an Android release happening sometime this summer. Gamers would be understandably skeptical of leaks coming from 4chan, but according to Kotaku, there is reason to believe that Fortnite for Nintendo Switch is true.

Facebook ditches trending news section
How the platform approached its role as a news disseminator has sparked heavy criticism across a number of different groups. Facebook eventually fired the editors on the trending team , replacing them with an automated process.

Although, if its the same experience as other platforms, you'll need a solid WiFi connection to compete with other players in battle royale.

The Nintendo E3 Direct will be a pre-recorded showcase. They said that this is among Epic Games' plans for the game.

We'll find out officially during E3 2018 June 12th-14th.

For anyone hoping to see some big Fortnite news at E3, they will probably want to tune into the Nintendo conference.

Is Fortnite coming to Switch? The listing doesn't give much away but does serve as additional evidence that a Switch variant is likely on the way.
