The Nintendo Switch was the last console to receive Fortnite, and now it’s getting the “exclusive skin” deal as well. The bundle is not too different from other packages offered by the popular game. Samsung Galaxy users got the “Galaxy” skin, Xbox gamers are predicted to get the “Eon” skin, and PlayStation players received the Blockbuster skin. Nintendo Switch users will be blessed with the “Double Helix” skin for their bundle, but is it worth your purchase?
If you’re looking for a reason to get Fortnite, or just want an exclusive skin, I would say no. The “Doube Helix” skin is just a red version of the Archetype skin, which makes the exclusivity feel somewhat fake. It isn’t worth buying the bundle just for the skin. If you’re looking to buy a Nintendo Switch regardless, then I would say it’s a good deal. Aside from the skin, gamers also get matching back bling, pickaxe, a slick glider, and 1,000 V-bucks. Since Fortnite is free to play anyway, the bundle comes at the standard Switch price of $299.99.
Fortnite allows cross-play between the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and mobile platforms. Sony has blocked their systems from joining in on the cross-play mayhem, for seemingly selfish reasons.
