Fortnite is headed to the Nintendo Switch, according to new leaks

The latest comes from 4chan and it has Dragon Ball FighterZ, Fortnite, Overcooked 2 and more for Switch. Nintendo Switch owners have been hoping that the game would eventually make its way to the console, with its portability allowing them to play it while on the move, but without the fiddly controls of the mobile version.

A leaked list of E3 Nintendo titles circulating the Internet listed the Fortnite among numerous titles which are coming to the handheld console. Should you primarily play on Xbox One but want to boot up a game of Fortnite Battle Royale on the road via your phone, you can do so with all of the same bells and whistles at your disposal. The document, which first surfaced on 4Chan, also lists Paladins alongside the previously announced Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and Mario Tennis Aces. At least, that's what the Korean game ratings board would have us believe. We can all dream. As for FighterZ, the game has been desired on the Switch since it was announce at E3 2017, so it feels like a natural fit. Given its popularity, the game has been brought to the majority of today's modern gaming platforms including the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iOS and even macOS. Fortnite is one of the most popular games around at the moment, and Epic seems interested in porting it to as many platforms as possible.

As we draw ever closer to E3 2018, leaks are surfacing that may or may not influence the presentations by the big developers.

Fortnite, however, is not the only game shown in the leaked document. With this usually being the first step on the road to a formal announcement, it's fairly safe to say that if it's coming to the Switch in Korea, it's going to be coming to the rest of the world.
