Nintendo Switch Fortnite Special Edition Bundle Announced

While Apple, Google, and Epic battle it out over Fortnite in the mobile app stores, Nintendo has struck a deal for a special edition Nintendo Switch bundle. The only catch is that this is exclusive to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

This is not the first time we have seen a Fortnite bundle, but this is the first time we have seen a special edition. The last one launched in October 2018 and included a standard Nintendo Switch with red and blue Joy-Con. This bundle will include the following:

  • Nintendo Switch console with Fortnite design on the back
  • Exclusive yellow Joy-Con (L) and blue Joy-Con (R)
  • Nintendo Switch dock with Fortnite design
  • Fortnite game pre-installed on the Nintendo Switch
  • Wildcat Bundle download code, which gives access to the Wildcat outfit + two additional styles, a Sleek Strike Back Bling + two additional styles, and 2000 V-Bucks

The console will be available on October 30, 2020, in Europe and November 6, 2020, in Australia and New Zealand. While the price for Europe or New Zealand has not been announced yet, the price will be AU$469.95 in Australia. This is the typical price for a non-Fortnite Nintendo Switch, so you should expect the same in Europe and New Zealand.

At the time, there has been no confirmation on a Fortnite Nintendo Switch bundle for North America or any other region.
