Chance The Rapper Has Made An Unexpected Request For Fortnite and Nintendo

American hip-hop artist and record producer Chance The Rapper turns out to be a fan of the battle royale game Fortnite, and has made in interesting request to Nintendo about the game. Fortnite, an increasingly popular game, is beloved mainly for its battle royale mode - which pits 100 players against each other with every man and women for themselves or in teams, fighting for survival on a large island map. The game became hugely popular after it's release in 2017, following in the success of other battle royale games H1Z1 and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), and is also a very widely enjoyed as a spectator game as well, with fans watching live streamers play the game in their millions.

The Nintendo Switch, which was released worldwide back in March 2017, has also seen a huge surge in popularity, with titles such as Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being massive successes and exclusive to the handheld and very mobile device. Chance could also be inferring possibly a new battle royale game, made especially for the Switch, as he does ask for 'a' Fortnite - a standalone BR for Switch would no doubt be something to get excited about. This is not the first title to potentially be discussed as having a port to the Switch, as sources claimed recently that Call of Duty's next instalment would also be getting a Nintendo Switch release. And Chance is not the first celebrity to reveal he is a fan of the battle royale video game genre, after world famous PSG football player Neymar Jr. asked for his very own PUBG server. We're not sure how a Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite, or any other battle royale game for that matter would work with the controls, but it would certainly be interesting to find out. x
