Epic Games has today officially announced the release of its smash hit game Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch, which is available now as a free download (via The Verge). Analytics firm Superdata estimates that Epic is making somewhere in the realm of $300 million every month on "Fortnite", across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iPhone/iPad, PC, and Mac. As is customary with Nintendo's Switch presentations, a series of people are then shown playing Fortnite while out and about, showing off the ability to "play anywhere".

The device has been credited with helping turn around Nintendo's fortunes since it was released previous year, with the Japanese gaming giant reporting healthy profits in recent financial results.

Sony hasn't specifically said why it is blocking cross-platform play, but it's likely because it's now dominating the console market and doesn't want anything to jeopardise that.

"The $100,000,000 will be split between many events at different levels of competition around the globe".

Fortnite is certain to grab the short-term attention of players, but it's not necessarily a game that will sell hardware.

Its most popular format, Battle Royale, pits 100 players against each other, some of whom are in small teams, to see who is the last person standing. The World Cup will focus on Solo and Duo plays but there might be something for Squads too.

This fantastic news was shared by an Epic Games developer on Nintendo's Treehouse livestream at E3.

The World Cup will culminate in the first Fortnite World Cup in late 2019.

Neither Sony nor Epic Games responded to a request for comment.

While also on Tuesday the hugely anticipated Fortnite Pro Am was held. You can play the game in the native handheld form, connect a wireless Pro controller, or set the display on a table and play with the motion controllers.
