Fortnite Coming to Switch

Robert Purchese, for Eurogamer:

World-conquering battle royale game Fortnite appears to be heading to Nintendo Switch.

The Korean game ratings board rated Fortnite for Switch this morning (via Resetera), not long after a separate sighting on a list of E3 games leaked on 4chan overnight - a list we independently heard is legitimate.

We also heard, prior to these events, Fortnite was coming to Switch.

This is great news, but I’m still unclear on what this means for a player’s Epic Games account. Currently, I have on Epic Games account tied to my Mac, iOS devices, and PS4; and another, on its own, for Xbox. It’s astoundingly annoying. (Thanks, Sony.)

Does Fortnite on Switch mean another Epic Games account!?
