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.
