Original Article (Thu 10th Sep, 2020 09:17 BST): Nintendo has revealed a new limited edition Switch console set to become available at retail next month, with battle royale phenomenon Fortnite acting as the main selling point.
The new console has only been confirmed for release in Europe (30th October), and Australia and New Zealand (6th November) so far, and includes all of the following:
- Nintendo Switch console with a unique Fortnite design on the back
- Exclusive yellow Joy-Con (L) and blue Joy-Con (R)
- Nintendo Switch dock with a unique Fortnite design
- Fortnite pre-installed
- Wildcat Bundle download code, giving access to the Wildcat Outfit and two additional styles, a Sleek Strike Back Bling and two additional styles, and 2000 V-Bucks
Since its launch on Switch in June 2018, Fortnite has become the most downloaded game ever launched on Nintendo hardware in Europe, so it's hardly surprising to see a bundle like this arrive in stores.
The console will have a suggested retail price of AU$469.95 in Australia. No pricing has been confirmed for Europe just yet.
