E3ODUS [E3 2018 Preview]: Fortnite.

FORTNITE DLC (Epic Games/People Can Fly – PS4, X1, PC – Switch, DLC TBA) – All new fads must eventually come to their end, right? Well, that’s certainly not the case for Epic Games’ Fortnite. This incredibly addicting shooter has everyone hooked. What started as a fun, yet repetitive gameplay experience quickly shifted into one that’s constantly evolving. Epic Games has introduced a number of different updates over the course of these past several months, all of which keep the players on their toes and craving more. That being said, what could possibly be in store for Fortnite this E3?

What’s curious is that this epic battle royale game has launched on every platform, except for Android and Nintendo. While rumors are called just that for a reason, it’s said that Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode may be revealed for Nintendo Switch this E3. At this point, everything is fair speculation, but some compelling evidence has been found to prove otherwise. Firstly, there was a job posting found discussing a Fortnite Nintendo port. Secondly, an image was leaked showing Nintendo’s E3 presentation list. If you look towards the bottom, you can see “Fortnite: Trailer/Gameplay Footage”.

That said, everything should be taken lightly until an official reveal is made. If it is true, can we expect any sort of Nintendo-exclusive content? Maybe. But at least we have some confirmed news for Fortnite at E3 2018: a showroom booth, a special E3 Coliseum presentation, and Party Royale, a Fortnite E3 afterparty. I couldn’t be more jealous.
