Just take the best-selling Nintendo console of all time and add one of the most popular games ever made, that’s all it takes to create the ‘The Nintendo Switch: Fortnite – Double Helix Bundle’. The popular free-to-play game is getting its own Nintendo Switch bundle on October 5th, filled with special items from the game.

The Fortnite Bundle will sell for $299 and will includes a Nintendo Switch system, 1,000 V-bucks (in-game Fortnite currency) and the Double Helix Set, consisting of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe. The included V-Bucks can be used to purchase a Battle Pass, which unlocks additional in-game content, or can be used to purchase other in-game items. If you’re new to the game, you can jump in to be the last one standing in a high-stakes game of 100-player Battle Royale. Players build forts and destroy their opponents to obtain Victory Royale. Players can squad up together online with friends in the same room or around the world with the Nintendo Switch, while regular updates to the game add new gameplay modes, outfits, weapons and items. The game is gearing up to launch all the new Season 6 content.

Meanwhile, while Samsung is celebrating the launch of the Galaxy Note9 and the Galaxy Tab S4, the company announced a new contest and promotion for fans of Fortnite.
