Nintendo released Epic Games’ battle royale game Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch via eShop yesterday morning following the E3 2018 Direct, and it has already been downloaded 2 million times.
Speaking with Polygon, Nintendo of America president and chief operating officer Reggier Fils-Aime shared:
“Fortnite’s launch went extremely well — we had more than 2 million downloads in less than 24 hours. I think that speaks to the power of the franchise, the engagement of our players and the resonance of being able to play it anytime, anywhere.”
Fortnite is available on the Nintendo Switch. It is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
