A new Switch bundle featuring Fortnite is on the way, Nintendo has announced.
Unexpected, but I can see this selling extremely well with the Pokemon and Smash bundles during the holidays.
Nice!! With an interesting price too...
ok bye lol
Sony's done it too lmao Edit: LOL bro take the L instead of editing your comment. There's literally an article right below the comment section about a $70 DualShock 4 Fortnite bundle lmao
Think you may have hurt his feels. At least made him feel stupid enough to edit his post.
Fox buddy you are a comedian.
Nintendo's gunna be raking it in this christmas
Seriously though. Factor in smash and pokemon, the fact that botw and odyssey sales are going to leap with new switch purchases and that nintendo killed last black friday with no sales on anything.
I can't WAIT for Smash and Super Mario Party!!
Definitely didn't see that coming.
Isn't Fortnite free?
It is, and this is the same price as a normal Switch just with extra Fortnite "goodies"
The original game didn't include the Battle Royale. BR was F2P, but as far as I know, the original game is still a full game which one has to pay for. I don't know if that's with the bundle, or if its just the BR mode in a pretty box.
As much as people complain about this game, this is a very smart move for the holiday season. Any company that does something like this is in for a guaranteed payday.
Bold move bundling a free game with the console.
"The Nintendo Switch: Fortnite – Double Helix Bundle includes a Nintendo Switch system, 1,000 V-bucks (in-game Fortnite currency) and the Double Helix Set, consisting of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe. The included V-Bucks can be used to purchase a Battle Pass, which unlocks additional in-game content, or can be used to purchase other in-game items." not free content that you are getting for free.
Yep this is going to sell.
A little unexpected considering Sony had the advertisement rights. But this will sell this Christmas like the Pro and Slim PS4 Fortnite bundles.
Does Sony have a marketing deal with Epic for this game? I just thought it was marketed by Epic towards PS heavily because Xbox got PUBG, and Epic saw an opportunity to play the console war field and pit itself against PUBG in that way. I know Sony had a bundle, but bundles don't require marketing deals.
Sony seem to heavily promote this game I just assume they have/had the marketing rights.
There is no nope.
You can always have nope.
Fortnite on my switch is my favorite way to play
Fun fact. Even the regular Switch is a Fornite bundle. So is any PS4,Xbox,PC,Phone. BECAUSE THE GAME IS FREE..making a bundle rather worthless. Oh gee you saved me the 30 seconds it would take to download the game myself!
Shelf advertisement is key here. How would you think a kid would react if they saw this on store shelves while at your typical big box store with their parents? Also, it isn't worthless since it includes a $10 in-game currency (which is perfect to get a battle pass) and an exclusive skin.
it's got exclusive goodies though. And those aren't free.
You don't need to spend 300 dollars to save 10 dollars.
@Segata - but if you are already going to spend $300, why not take the same package with a little something extra. Regardless if you feel isn't isn't worth much, why would you ever take less for the same price?
Shame it's just the standard Switch with a dlc code. Would've flown off the shelves with a custom skin on the console.
It includes $10 in in-game currency [you can use that to get the battle pass] and an exclusive skin.
As above a dlc code.
Fortnite is cancer
