Battle Royale starts with 100 players who all jump from a plane onto a small island where they fight to the death until only one player is victorious.

The Switch's online services are now free, but starting in September Nintendo will begin to charge for online multiplayer. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen.

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

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. But what happens when you get addicted?
