New Leaks Suggest That Fortnite is Coming to the Nintendo Switch

Numerous reports have sprung up claiming that Fortnite is coming to the Nintendo Switch and will be revealed at E3 in June.

Fortnite has taken the world by storm in 2018 and is currently available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and even iOS.

It looks like that isn’t enough for Epic Games, though, as supposed leaked E3 documents seem to show that the Nintendo Switch will be the next platform to support the incredibly popular title.

The leaked document, supposedly coming from an employee involved with making the E3 displays, was originally posted on 4chan and later reported by the likes of  Kotaku and gamesradar but nothing concrete has come to light and Epic Games has not commented.

If the leak is a legitimate one, there is no information on whether the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite will simply feature the original “Save The World” mode or include the significantly more popular “Battle Royale”.

The image, shown below, also displays marketing materials for Dragon Ball FighterZ which Kotaku say makes this leak seem more credible as they have heard rumors about it coming to the Switch from other sources.

The numbers under each image reportedly refer to the size of each display model.

The Kotaku report also claims that a source “familiar with Epic Games’ plans” told the publication that Fortnite would be coming to the Nintendo Switch “earlier this week” but asked to remain anonymous.

The idea of Fortnite coming to the Nintendo Switch is hardly a surprising one as the game is constantly expanding and Epic Games has proved to be a company that has its finger on the pulse.

The developers are already working on getting Fortnite released for Android after the successful iOS launch. Add the Switch top the ever-growing list and it will be available on just about every modern device imaginable.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
