Unlike PUBG however, Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free. In the same vein, 56 percent disagreed that cross-platform play would convince them to buy into a console's service like PSN or Xbox Live versus 13 percent who agreed it would.

It was also announced that Fortnite on Switch would not be the Mobile version of the game, and will use Nintendo Switch servers too. Nintendo revealed Fortnite can be downloaded via the Nintendo eShop during its E3 presentation earlier on Tuesday, during which details on Super Smash Bros. If you first play on Switch and then try to play on PS4, you'll get the following message: "The Epic Account you tried to link cannot play on this platform".

In addition to "Fortnite", Nintendo announced several other new games, including "Super Mario Party", "DaemonXMachina", and a new story pack for "Xenoblade Chronicles 2", all coming in the next 12 months. Specifically, it includes 600 V-Bucks (in-game currency used to purchase cosmetics and emotes in battle royale), the fighter pilot-looking Wingman Outfit and the Bogey Bag Back Bling. Each tier costs 150 V-Bucks.
