After teasing an update that will allow players to gift items to one another, it looks like the new feature might be coming to the game soon.

A recent leak suggested that Fortnite Nintendo Switch would be revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation. As it stands you can now play Fortnite on Xbox One, PS4, iPhone, iPad and now Nintendo Switch. The game hit mobile platforms some time ago, and since the Switch is built using a number of mobile-oriented components, porting Fortnite to the Switch seemed like an obvious win.

But many veteran Fortniters discovered an unpleasant surprise waiting for them when they tried to log into Switch with their old Epic Games accounts. Like with just about every other version of Fortnite, the new Nintendo Switch version of Fornite includes full support for cross platform play.

Unfortunately this is neither new nor unexpected from Sony, as their position against cross-platform play with other consoles has been well noted. Don't worry, it's still free as only Save the World requires you to pay - that is if you don't purchase the completely optional seasonal Battle Pass.

And while cross-platform play has been the key to the battle royale mode, Sony's always been a bit of a stick in the mud on this one.

The part of "Fortnite" that's so incredibly popular is the Battle Royale mode, which pits 100 real players against each other in a kill-or-be-killed scenario. It also notes that a Wingman Starter Pack and V-Bucks add-ons will be available.
