Nintendo has revealed a Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundle that includes the free-to-play game, 1,000 V-bucks, and the Double Helix Set.
The Nintendo Swtich: Fortnite – Double Helix Bundle will launch on October 5, 2018, for $299.99 USD (No word on UK pricing as of yet), the same price as the standard Nintendo Switch.
The bundle will include the previously mentioned 1,000 V-bucks and the Double Helix Set which contains a Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe.
This Fortnite bundle joins other recently announced Nintendo Switch bundles, including the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Switch Bundle, Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! Nintendo Switch Bundle, and the Walmart-exclusive Mario Tennis Aces Nintendo Switch Bundle.
Those who purchase the Nintendo Swtich: Fortnite – Double Helix Bundle will not have to worry if they have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription or not because Fortnite will not need players to be a member of Nintendo’s online service to play online with friends or against the world.
When this bundle launches in early October, Fortnite will have started its sixth season and strange events have already started happening in the game world that have fueled speculation about what the next season will bring to shooter.
