Fortnite Themed Switch Bundle is Headed to European Retailers
A Fortnite Switch bundle has been announced for Europe and Oceana.
In the past month, there has been no shortage of Fortnite news as a result of the Apple/Epic Games lawsuit, but today some news broke that had nothing to do with two mega-corporations fighting for more money: Nintendo is teaming up with Epic Games to release a Fortnite themed Switch bundle.
The bundle will include the Switch itself with a unique Fortnite design printed on the back, two exclusive joy-cons — one yellow, one blue with a battle bus design around the home button, a Switch dock with a Fortnite design, and Fortnite pre-installed on the console. Additionally, it comes with a download code for the “Wildcat Bundle” which includes in-game outfits as well as 2,000 V-bucks.
Unfortunately for Americans, it’s only available in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, but it’s unclear at the time of writing if it’s going to stay that way. Even if it does, there’s bound to be listings of the regional exclusive for sale on the internet.
These types of bundles are nothing new for the Switch. In the past we’ve seen bundles for Splatoon 2, Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, all of those were used to promote upcoming games, and while Fortnite is a hot topic right now because of Epic Games’ feud with Apple, there isn’t some huge upcoming event that’s been announced.

Either way, this new Switch bundle looks pretty and seems appealing to any Fortnite fans who are no longer able to play on their phones as a result of the lawsuit. As of right now, there is no European price for the bundle but is coming in at AU$469.95 in Australia (roughly £270 or US$350.)
