Fortnite supports cross-play between Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

During Nintendo’s Direct today, Fortnite was officially revealed for the Nintendo Switch. This wasn’t much of a surprise as it leaked beforehand, but what might come as a surprise to people is that cross-play will be enabled between Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Okay, maybe not much of a surprise given Microsoft and Nintendo’s openness to the feature in the past compared to Sony, but it’s a welcome confirmation nonetheless.

Epic’s PR manager Nick Chester confirmed on Twitter that Fortnite will support cross-play between Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices.
