The Nintendo Switch is getting its own Fortnite bundle

The Nintendo Switch is getting its own Fortnite bundle

I've been on record for years now in my position that the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons are "hand-crampingly small" when being held horizontally, NES-controller style, by adult-sized hands. Of course, it's no secret that the game is free-to-play, so there are some other rewards for players who get this bundle. One of the biggest benefits of Switch Online is the introduction of cloud saves.

This will be the first time Nintendo has charged for an online membership service to get the most out of your games, bringing it in line with its competitors and the likes of PlayStations Plus and Xbox Live Gold.

Online play and voice chat are only a couple of the features on offer.




Plus, the bundle costs $300 in the United States, which is the same amount you'd pay for a Nintendo Switch console on its own. Were you hoping to display your NES games proudly alongside your modern Switch titles?

The subscription service will be available for £3.49 a month in the United Kingdom, £6.99 for three months, or £17.99 annually. According to Nintendo, cloud saving won't be used in titles where it would enable cheating. Meaning those late night sessions of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be over if you don't pick up a subscription.

Having announced a September 18 launch date, it looks like the Nintendo Switch Online service is going live this evening (18th) in the USA, and therefore early tomorrow morning (19th) in most other territories. The yearly subscription is the best deal, so we'll focus on it. This will protect your save files in the event of a console malfunction, or if you need to make room on your Switch but don't want to lose the save file forever. We expect the Android version to follow suit before the Switch update goes live tonight.
