Back in June, Fortnite fans were thrilled when the game arrived for the Nintendo Switch. But if you haven’t bought a Switch yet and love the game, October 5th is the date for you. That’s when a Nintendo Switch bundle featuring special items and currency from the game is arriving. This bundle retails for the same price as a regular Nintendo Switch console, which is $300.
Sadly, this Fortnite Bundle won’t feature a custom-designed console, which isn’t surprising at that price. They certainly would charge more for that. You do, however get the red and blue Joy-Cons. So what else are you getting in this package? Well, this set comes with 1,000 V-Bucks that you can use to purchase in-game items and the Double Helix set, which is a unique Character Outfit. There’s also a Pickaxe, Glider and Back Bling to round it all out.
Fortnite itself is free to download, and will stay free to play after the launch of the Switch’s online service. This game has been hugely popular, and the phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down. You can pre-order the Nintendo Switch Fortnite Double Helix Bundle on Gamestop now.
