Not wanting to be left out of the current hype surrounding new consoles, Nintendo has just announced a very stylish special edition Fortnite Nintendo Switch. 

If a Switch console emblazoned with Fortnite-themed artwork wasn't enough to tempt you, the bundle also contains a range of digital items for use within the hugely-popular Battle Royale game (which comes pre-installed).

Read on for all the information we have about this exciting bundle…

What’s included in the special edition Fortnite Nintendo Switch?

The main attraction of this bundle is, of course, the console/handheld hybrid itself. 

Previous Switch Fortnite bundles have only offered a Switch in standard colours, but this time Nintendo has gone the extra step and designed a console around the game. 

Featuring custom artwork on both the docking station and the back of the console itself, this is one of the best looking Switch consoles we’ve ever seen.

We especially love the extra detailing on the right joy-con controller, where the home button has been turned into the floating battle bus. 

The joy-con colour combination, of blue and yellow, is also exclusive to this bundle.

If the custom-designed Switch wasn’t enough you also get 2000 V-Bucks and the Wildcat Outfit for use within Fortnite with this bundle. 

Where can I pre-order the special edition Fortnite Nintendo Switch?

After making us wait for more than a month, the special edition Fortnite Nintendo Switch is FINALLY available for pre-order at Shopto.net for £279.85.

The Nintendo Switch has been one of the most in-demand products of 2020, and anything Fortnite related tends to be equally popular so we're not expecting this bundle to stick around for long.

The bundle is also up for pre-order on Amazon if that is your preferred retailer, although it does come with a slightly larger price tag of £299.99.

However, if you want to secure yourself a Fortnite-themed Switch for the cheapest possible price then click here to pre-order yours at Shopto.

What’s the price of the special edition Fortnite Nintendo Switch?

With a custom Switch console and dock, plus a bunch of digital goodies we had expected this bundle to come with an inflated price tag, thankfully that's not the case.

In the UK the Fortnite Special Edition Switch will cost £279.85, whereas in Australia the bundle has been confirmed to cost $469.85.

These prices are about the average going rate for a Switch, which means you're getting a special edition for the cost of a standard machine. Bargain.

What’s the release date of the special edition Fortnite Nintendo Switch?

Due for release on October 30th this limited edition Switch will make an ideal Christmas present for a loved one, or just an early holiday gift for yourself. 

If you’re in Australia you’ll have to wait an extra week though, as the bundle launches November 6th in your region.
