Fortnite Double Helix & 1000 V-Bucks Nintendo Switch Bundle Coming Next Month

Posted September 19, 2018

Do I need Nintendo Switch Online for online multiplayer? When it does return, that's likely when Nintendo Switch Online will be activated, so people can give it a try with its seven day trial. The bundle is not too different from other packages offered by the popular game. Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers can be charged by attaching to the Nintendo Switch system. We won't be surprised to see Nintendo ramp up the costs attached to its service over time much like PS Plus and Xbox Live have. So you're getting the Fortnite add-ons for free with the bundle.

Epic Games' Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world, and this past June it extended its audience by launching on Nintendo Switch. First and most importantly, all of the games you were previously playing online will now need a subscription.

These will be followed by three additional titles each month with upgraded graphics and some limited online and two-player functionality. For online play. Nintendo Switch Online will let you take part in online matchmaking for games like Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, or however many other competitive games that just aren't complete until you've battled it out with friends and strangers around the globe.

Cloud saves also aren't guaranteed to be backed up if you lapse as a member - though it'll still be on your Switch console's internal memory as long as it's functional. Instead, you can expect the service to go online later this evening at 8 PM PT / 11 PM ET.

You'll need to also make sure that you have linked the correct Nintendo account to your Switch.

Both PlayStation and Xbox have explicit plans for handling cloud saves in inactive subscriptions.
