Following phenomenal first-quarter financial results – including a 185 percent year-over-year increase in sales – headset manufacturer Turtle Beach confirmed today that they have the largest-ever lineup of Battle Royale-ready headsets available for Fortnite on Nintendo Switch.
The collection now includes 25 different headsets that are compatible with the system – and because Fortnite has its own in-game voice chat functionality on the Switch, this replaces the need for players to use Nintendo’s mobile voice chat app to communicate with their squad.
According to Juergen Stark, CEO of Turtle Beach, Epic Games’ inclusion of their own chat system in-game "opens the doors for developers of future online multiplayer titles coming to Nintendo Switch to follow their lead and implement in-game chat systems, which is great news overall for Nintendo, for Turtle Beach, and most importantly…for gamers."
Alongside their current headset models, Turtle Beach also announced two other new products at E3 this year: the Recon 200 and Stealth 300 headsets, both optimized for Battle Royale gaming on Switch, specifically with Fortnite. The headsets reportedly have powerful amplified game audio, crystal-clear chat, and numerous other features. Stealth 300 will be available for purchase beginning in July, and Recon 200 hits shelves this fall. To see all of the Switch-compatible headsets currently available from Turtle Beach, click here.
