Fortnite supports cross-play between Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

If you've ever played Fortnite on PS4, you can no longer use that Epic account to play on Nintendo Switch. That may produce the opposite of Sony's intended effect by spurring Switch owners to either play on Nintendo's system instead of the PS4, or else to get an Xbox One for their living room sessions. The inverse is also happening, limiting accounts that are first used on Switch from playing on PS4.

At this time, we are unsure if there will be any Switch-specific content. That's right, as revealed during the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct, you'll be able to floss, dab, and whatever else you want to do on your Nintendo Switch console starting from today, June 12. No account previously linked to a PSN account can log in on a Switch console.

The Verge noted that the same appears to be the case with the Nintendo Switch version, a fact that TechCrunch has since verified with an Epic spokesperson. This will then let you create a new account either on the Switch itself or on the official Epic Games site.

"Qualifying for the World Cup will be based on merit, and Epic will not be selling teams or franchises", says Smith, "and we won't allow third-party leagues to do so either".

And now, it's also on the Nintendo Switch! The game's rise in popularity has led to numerous other developers attempting to inject the mode into their own IPs, including Activision with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and EA with Battlefield V. You should now be able to change your username to your preferred original username. You'd better make sure they're worth it.
