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.

Similar to the standard Fortnite Battle Royale Starter Pack, the Wingman is available for just $4.99 and includes an assortment of cosmetics and in-game money. Players only need to visit the Nintendo Switch eShop and download the game before they're able to jump into the chaos.

Set in a huge map this version of the game puts 100 players against each other. The game is popular with celebrities such as Drake and Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price who was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in May after reportedly playing "Fortnite" for too many hours.
