Fortnite Cropped

Nintendo has revealed a brand new Switch console bundle set to arrive at retail next month featuring Fortnite as its cover star. The bundle will contain extra goodies to help players get started in the game.

That's right, on 5th October, this bundle arrives in stores including a Nintendo Switch system, 1,000 V-bucks (in-game Fortnite currency) and the Double Helix Set - a cosmetic collection consisting of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider, and Pickaxe.

Of course, these V-Bucks are just enough to purchase a Battle Pass, which can unlock an entire season's worth of additional in-game content, or can alternatively be used to purchase other in-game items. The bundle comes with a suggested retail price of $299.99 - essentially meaning that the in-game currency and items are included as a free bonus for new Switch buyers. The game itself can already be downloaded free of charge for all users from the Nintendo eShop.
