However, some players ran into an ugly roadblock. Now, thanks to an announcement by Nintendo, it's now been confirmed that Epic will be bringing Fortnite to the Switch hardware with immediate effect. The slightly disappointing news is that it doesn't appear that Fortnite for Switch will contain any Nintendo-specific content.

After the Smash Ultimate Direct aired, a lot of folks had already gotten over the hype and were accusing Nintendo of porting the Wii U edition, adding a few characters and stages, and calling it a day.

Jeremy Corbyn, the head of the opposition and the leader of Labour party, denounced the summit as a failure caused by Trump. Shortly after that statement was published online, Trump complained about comments made by Trudeau and revoked his support.

We doubt this will appease furious Fortnite fans who are lambasting Sony over its unwillingness to partake in cross-play with other consoles. However, the visuals have been stripped down to run smoother on the Switch's Tegra X1 chip.

It's no secret that Sony are against cross-platform play between consoles, going so far as to hide its reasoning for not supporting the idea behind technological shortcomings and the idea that it needs to protect its player-base from the scourge of the internet. It is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In fact, you can't even log in with a PS4 account. We also offer "Fortnite" cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for "Fortnite' fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms". This means that a Fortnite account, once logged-in on a PlayStation 4 is then forever tied to that platform. It's a little vague, but it explains that Epic support can't do anything to help. The incompatibility works in reverse as well-Epic accounts previously associated with the Switch or Xbox One can't be used on the PS4 version.

You can nearly understand Sony wanting to block cross-platform access with the Xbox. The first is that true cross-play remains a dream-and that it only takes one company, like Sony, to exclude its platform from the list of available options to kill that dream. Save on numerous Xbox One consoles, games like PUBG, as well as codes for free months of Xbox Live Gold. Many gamers use the Switch as a secondary console, because of its portable nature. And looking to create new accounts will rob them of time and money spent along the way to get them where they are, which is a very backward way of doing business, especially as the Switch is hardly the same league of competition when it comes to online titles at the moment for Sony.
