Fortnite Looks Certain To Release on Nintendo Switch Following Another Major Leak

A second major leak about Fortnite coming to Nintendo Switch is the strongest evidence yet, as a logo image file was uploaded to the Nintendo eShop.

Fans have been speculating about the potential for Fortnite on the Switch since the game’s release, and rumors sparked after a supposed Nintendo E3 promotional document was leaked, with Fortnite on the list.


However, fake or doctored conference itineraries and promotional materials are often circulated ahead of E3 to purposely ‘leak’ information about game releases, so many took this first tease with a generous helping of salt.

But this initial leak is now looking significantly more reliable after an image of Fortnite’s logo was uploaded the Nintendo eShop, along with an update to the store preparing for release.


Nintendo’s E3 conference is set to take place on Tuesday 12th June, but their big announcement for Fortnite may well have been spoiled after this update was spotted and posted to social media.

Twitter user @SciresM posted two images, showing both the update file to the store and the image which was uploaded – very clearly a Fortnite promotional image.

According to the previous leak of the E3 document, other as yet unannounced Switch games such as Dragon Ball FighterZ are also set to be coming to the popular Nintendo console.


As for Fortnite, a Switch release would be a no brainer, given its already successful release on mobile (iOS devices only currently), and the Switch console is still gaining popularity.

Many PS4/Xbox an PC players might even download the game again for their Switch console if they own both, allowing them to play Fortnite on the go – a good middle ground between playing on mobile.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
