Reggie Fils-Aimé has taken great delight in revealing that Fortnite is indeed coming to the Nintendo Switch, with full battle royale functionality. He's well hype to drop from the bus and get stuck in. The man is ruthless.

Reggie said that the game would be available from 10am today, which, if we assume he means LA time, would be 6pm BST. So, like half an hour.

Rumours of Fortnite on Switch have been swirling for a while, and last week it turned up on the Nintendo eShop update on the Switch. 

This is a good get for Nintendo and Fortnite both (and a bad day for PUBG presumably).

Update: It's been confirmed that the Switch version will have crossplay with Xbox One, PC, Mac and Mobile.
