Fortnite for Nintendo Switch is one of the worst kept secrets of E3 2018. Aside from multiple leaks thanks to news outlets and ratings boards, now another leak has revealed the Fortnite Nintendo Switch release date and download size. Thanks to data miner Simon Aarons we know the Fortnite Nintendo Switch release date is indeed June 12 and the Fortnite Nintendo Switch download size is 2044MB. This comes a day prior to Nintendo's E3 2018 event that should have officially announced the game. Perhaps it was to be Nintendo's one more thing at the end of its E3 2018 conference?
"While you may not be able to view the Fortnite eShop listing in the storefront (Ashigaru) yet, Shogun + my tool is always there to save the day," Aarons tweeted along with a screenshot of the eShop description which you can see right here.
This follows evidence of Nintendo prepping for a Fortnite Nintendo Switch reveal. The game was found on the company's content distribution network, essentially confirming that we'll see the game soon enough. All that’s left is for Epic Games or Nintendo to officially announce Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch which we should see at E3 2018 at Nintendo’s conference along with a release date. It'll be interesting to see how Fortnite for Nintendo Switch stacks up against other versions of the game particularly Fortnite on iOS.
Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch should come as no surprise for a host of reasons. Earlier in the year Epic Games Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard has openly stated his admiration of the console’s potential for a Fortnite port. Plus, if Doom can make it to the Nintendo Switch, third-parties have no reason not to bring their biggest and best to the console.
