Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundle available in October


Need some V-Bucks (and a Switch)?

A special Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundle has been confirmed for Australia and New Zealand.

Available from 5 October, the bundle includes a Nintendo Switch console and 1,000 in-game Fortnite V-Bucks. It also comes with the Double Helix Bundle, which includes a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe. Fortnite itself isn’t included, but that’s okay — the game’s free-to-play and can be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop.

The Fortnite bundle doesn’t come with a limited edition Switch console — if you’re after something a little different, Nintendo has recently confirmed special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Let’s Go Pokemon consoles.

Nintendo didn’t confirm pricing on the bundle; we’ve asked for it now.

Fortnite is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, iOS and Android devices.
