People Are Addicted To Fortnite On Nintendo Switch Too
With Fortnite breaking records on every platform, Nintendo Switch also became a partner with them. They announced this during the Nintendo E3 Pro AM tournament. And surprisingly not, they crossed 2 million users in the first 24 hours of its release On Nintendo Switch.
“Fortnite’s launch went extremely well — we had more than 2 million downloads in less than 24 hours,” Reggie Fils-Aime, president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, told Polygon in an interview at E3 2018. “I think that speaks to the power of the franchise, the engagement of our players and the resonance of being able to play it anytime, anywhere.”
