A countdown is being broadcast to in-game TV sets across the Switch version of Fortnite, and nobody is totally sure what it means.

Epic Games has used such tactics in the past to drop hints at forthcoming changes to the game, so it could be related to new content, skins or even a map change. Players of the game on other formats are currently seeing a skull symbol in the Snobby Shores area of the map, which also indicates something is about to happen. 

However, the confusing part here is why Epic hasn't simply used the same skull icon for the Switch version of the game - could Nintendo fans be getting something slightly different?
