'Freedom Planet' Confirmed for Switch, Planned for Autumn Release

'Freedom Planet' Confirmed for Switch, Planned for Autumn Release

The company has announced that E3 2018's Direct will be dedicated to only Switch games (much like 2017's offering). But reports on a government agency rating the rumored "Fornite" for Nintendo Switch are credible enough for fans to keep waiting until Epic Games deems it the right time to officially make the announcement.

Epic Games' Fortnite generated $296 million (R3 714 696 400.00) in the month of April across mobile, console, and PC platforms, according to digital game sales tracker SuperData Research.

Nintendo has already stated that their E3 2018 presence will focus on games that are going to be releasing this year. E3 2018 will take place from June 12 to June 14.

Nintendo was able to pack their E3 Direct with mostly first party titles, because third parties by and large ignored the Wii U. Now that the Switch is selling gangbusters Nintendo will have to find the flawless balance, and unfortunately I think that means a few first party games getting less screen time in the process. Though whether we'll be surprised or not still remains to be seen. It makes you wonder, was this pairing always in the stars? Other games include Overcooked 2, Paladins, FIFA, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and Dragon Ball Fighter Z. Presumably developers will stop by to show off the game and discuss it at length. Invitational Tournament begins. And throughout the duration of E3, Nintendo Treehouse will be broadcasting live gameplay demos and interviews.

References to Fortnite have been spotted in a recent eShop update.

To say Fortnite has been doing well for itself is possibly the biggest understatement of the year, and with the Nintendo Switch still taking the world by storm.
