The Fortnite Nintendo Switch bundle has yellow and blue Joy-Cons and a themed dock.


A new, limited edition Fortnite   Nintendo Switch is coming to Europe on Oct. 30, followed by Australia and New Zealand on Nov. 6, Nintendo said in a press release Thursday. 

This model will include the console and dock with a Fortnite design on both, along with exclusive yellow and blue Joy-Cons. The console will come with Fortnite preinstalled, as well as a Wildcat Bundle download code, which'll give users access to a Wildcat Outfit and two additional styles and a Sleek Strike Back Bling and two additional styles, along with 2,000 V-Bucks.

Playing most Switch games online requires a subscription to Nintendo's $20 a year Switch Online service, but Fortnite is exempt from this -- all you need is the console, the game and an internet connection.

Nintendo didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about a US release.
