The leak was first reported by Variety, which cited a tweet from Simon Aarons, a data miner who saw the release date on Nintendo's eShop.

Epic Games' Fortnite, in case you haven't heard, is the game that is currently dominating the globe with tens of millions of players on consoles, PC, and mobile, and now the ever-popular shooter is making its way to Nintendo Switch owners...right now.

LAS VEGAS, NV - APRIL 21: Gamers play \"Fortnite\" against Twitch streamer and professional gamer Tyler \"Ninja\" Blevins during Ninja Vegas \'18 at Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor Hotel and Casino on April 21, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

However, it's not uncommon for kids to sometimes get worse grades here and there, so the parents didn't imagine at the time that it was linked to a video game.

And now, it's also on the Nintendo Switch! Whether Fortnite will be exempt from those charges remains to be seen.

It's finally happening: "Fortnite" is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The girl's mother told the Sunday People newspaper: "We had no idea, when we let her play the game, of the addictive nature or the impact it could have on her mental health".

The game, which has more than 40 million monthly active users and has become a cultural phenomenon, will be available today, Nintendo said at the E3 video game convention on Tuesday. It'll be interesting to see how Fortnite for Nintendo Switch stacks up against other versions of the game particularly Fortnite on iOS. Specifically, it includes 600 V-Bucks (in-game currency used to purchase cosmetics and emotes in battle royale), the fighter pilot-looking Wingman Outfit and the Bogey Bag Back Bling.

The game will be free of course, in line with Fortnite on all platforms, and judging from the trailer, Nintendo Switch will support Fortnite crossplay with other devices. But what happens when you get addicted?
