New Fortnite Bundle for Nintendo Switch Releases Early Next Month

New Fortnite Bundle for Nintendo Switch Releases Early Next Month

This will protect your save files in the event of a console malfunction, or if you need to make room on your Switch but don't want to lose the save file forever.

Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will also be able to use the dedicated smartphone app for voice chat, and can take advantage of various special offers. You can find the full list on Nintendo's NES web page.

Unfortunately, Nintendo has revealed that it is "unable to guarantee that cloud save data will be retained" after someone's Switch Online membership ends.

Update: The eShop has updated early and Nintendo Switch online is live! Nintendo Switch users will be blessed with the "Double Helix" skin for their bundle, but is it worth your purchase?




The obvious benefit to signing up to Nintendo Switch Online is online play.

With season six on the way, you could use the 1,000 V-Bucks for the season six battle pass or save them up to buy an item you like on the in-game store when it becomes available. So double check that if you aren't sure about it. On Sony's front, Free-to-play games like Fortnite and Warframe are exempt from the PlayStation Plus requirement.

If you're connected to the internet, your save data will be backed up automatically, even when your Nintendo Switch is in sleep mode. Unfortunately, you won't earn points when you purchase a subscription normally. There is also a family option for US$34.99, which gives yearly access for up to seven family members.
