Earlier today, Epic Games and Nintendo announced that Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode is heading to Nintendo Switch.
The Switch version – we kid you not – is taking the form of Fortnite: Mushroom Kingdom Battle Royale. The game for the Switch will feature Nintendo characters and an all-new map based on Mario’s Mushroom Kingdom, bringing together the worlds of Fortnite and Nintendo. Switch players will experience a Fortnite experience built-from-the-ground-up for the platform. It’s almost too good to be true!
The game will feature Battle Royale’s classic 100-player multiplayer modes. The game is “Switch-enhanced”, meaning that in order to play the game, you’ll need to own 100 different Amiibo figures, in order to activate the classic 100 person Battle Royale mode. Time to dig out your Amiibo collection!
HERE’S ALL THE FEATURES IN FOOL
THE CLASSIC BATTLE ROYALE EXPERIENCE, REFOOLED FOR SWITCH
Enter the battle as your favourite Nintendo characters, ranging from Mario & Luigi to the Inklings from Splatoon and Zelda. Crash and Spyro will be made available for purchase for the low price of 10,000 V-Bucks and your first born child.
Explore an all-new Mushroom Kingdom-themed map, crafted exclusively for the Switch.
Take part in online multiplayer battles with up to a 100 players on your own, or as part of a new asymmetric multiplayer experience, 99 v Bowser.
The game is entirely motion controlled, making use of the Joy-Con’s exclusive control features to enhance your gameplay experience. To even the playing field, Pro-Controllers will instantly combust if used.

Mario and his friends will use never-before-seen weapons to engage in combat with their foes. With an arsenal of more than billion weapons with unique powers, players will choose how best to equip their heroes. Golden weapons may only be used by those with Gold Mario Amiibos.
