That is the only option available to you if you've ever played Fortnite on PS4. "Cross-play and cross progression on Switch work with Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile", the company confirmed.

The game, which has more than 40 million monthly active users and has become a cultural phenomenon, will be available today, Nintendo said at the E3 video game convention on Tuesday.

Although a specific time of the day has been given for when the Fortnite download will be activated tomorrow on the eShop, we'd surmise that it will happen at 12PM EST tomorrow morning or shortly thereafter. The game's battle royale mode, which has taken the world by storm, will now be playable on the Nintendo hybrid console. You can do this on your Nintendo Switch itself when you first boot up Fortnite, or you can do so on the official Epic Games site.

Fortnite on the PlayStation 4 does not allow cross-console play, this much we know. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen. It turns out, the girl had been secretly spending up to 10 hours a night playing the game and was using the card to purchase in-game extras. Like with just about every other version of Fortnite, the new Nintendo Switch version of Fornite includes full support for cross platform play.

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.

This effectively means that players on the Switch will not have access to any of the progress or cosmetic items they may have collected in their existing accounts if they had already used the account on the PS4. Considering $1 gets you 100 V-Bucks, this is an insanely good deal.
