Nintendo Announces Fortnite-Themed Special Edition Switch for Europe

Nintendo has announced a Fortnite-themed special edition of its Switch console.

According to a new report from Nintendo Life, the console is slated to hit stores in Europe on October 30. It’ll also drop in Australia and New Zealand, albeit a little later on November 6.

The new Nintendo Switch will come with a unique Fortnite design on the back, exclusive yellow (L) and blue (R) Joy-Cons, a unique Nintendo Switch dock, Fortnite pre-installed, and a Wildcat Bundle download code including outfits and 2000 V-Bucks.

While Nintendo only announced the European release date, we can expect this to arrive in the the US and Canada, too. We don’t know yet how much this will cost, but in the past, we’ve seen the Fortnite bundle sell for the same price as a regular Switch console.

The pricing for Europe remains unclear, but Nintendo Life says the Fortnite-branded Switch will retail at about $350 USD in Australia.

The news comes amidst rumors Nintendo is seeking to ramp up Switch production by another 20 percent in an effort to keep up with demand. The Japanese giant is also purportedly working on a beefed-up Switch with 4K graphics capabilities for 2021.
