Fortnite on the Switch won't require Nintendo Online

Fortunately, however, Nintendo's new subscription service won't be necessary for titles like Fortnite. It may be the same for the Nintendo Switch, considering Fortnite's exemption from the Switch Online requirement. Once Switch Online is live, you'll need to pay a yearly (or monthly fee) to continue playing multiplayer games online, but there are a number of extra perks for those who choose to subscribe. You'll also have access to Cloud Saves for the majority of Switch titles. That's right, Nintendo and Epic are teaming up for a Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundle! The included V-Bucks can be used to purchase a Battle Pass, which unlocks additional in-game content, or can be used to purchase other in-game items. If you're looking to buy a Nintendo Switch regardless, then I would say it's a good deal. "This makes it simple to retrieve your game data if you lose your Nintendo Switch console, or start using a new one". So double check that if you aren't sure about it.

Features like voice chat are still hugely limited, and run through a smartphone app rather than allowing you to plug in your headphones straight into the Switch console and use an in-line mic. The yearly subscription is the best deal, so we'll focus on it.

You can stack these subscriptions for up to three years, if you want to commit for that long. We expect the Android version to follow suit before the Switch update goes live tonight.
