If you’ve been waiting to grab that Nintendo Switch Fortnite Bundle that the company previewed last month, now is the time to do it. Online retailers have just started shipping the new option, and you should grab this one while it’s still in stock.
You can find the bundle online at retailers, or here on Amazon.
As we mentioned earlier when Nintendo first announced the bundle, ‘The Nintendo Switch: Fortnite – Double Helix Bundle’ is selling 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. It’s the most popular game on the planet, so you can imagine the Switch bundle might go fast as we enter the holiday season.
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 just launched all the new Season 6 content, which adds even more mystery to Fortnite’s growing lore.
With the new season comes a new Battle Pass, now overflowing with 100 levels and more than 100 rewards to claim as your own. The new rewards include Pets, allowing players to have an extremely adorable friend watch their back when they drop in to claim their victory.
Additionally, players can embrace the darkness with the mysterious new Shadow Stone consumable and they can explore an updated map that includes floating islands, a spooky castle, and more surprises. The new update comes with a sort of sci-fi Halloween theme, though the mysteries of the Season will be unlocked as more and more players discover them.
