Italy: Nintendo Switch Boxes Will Come With Small “Free” Fortnite Branding

It looks as though Nintendo is set to cash in on Fortnite, at least in Italy. Amazon Italy shows that Nintendo Switch system boxes now have a small sticker on them in the bottom right hand corner stating that Fortnite is free via the Nintendo Switch eShop. Users who purchase a Nintendo Switch in Italy can download the game like anyone else but won’t get any special perks or skins.

  1. Lmao also can you update the site to how you had to have an account and etc stuff literally almost anyone can get on the comment section and majority of comments have been fill with toxic people and trolls lately

    1. Tbh, some of the trolls used to make this comment site entertaining. But, they don’t really try anymore. So, it’s kinda whatever. Lol.

      1. You don’t get it. If you will be forced to make an account, you won’t be able to insult everyone because then your account would be banned, so you would have to make new account (and new email as it’s 1 account per 1 email address), which would eventually truly frustrate you and you would stop making insulting comments.

      1. He doesn’t get it, that’s why he hates me soooo much.

        He is trying to bait me in attacking him so he can cry to admin and get my account banned, like always.
        Reported him for baiting and trolling.

      2. Are you talking about Wetluigi ?

        You do realize we are friends and I even mention I like the guy, but hey you are so filled with hatred you can’t see good things you just wanna create an enemy out of me, because you need your daily hate. Sad.

        Me and Wetluigi teasing each other no need to be jealous, we have many more boys here.

  2. This is kind of weird… I mean, not even a Nintendo game. Are you serious Italy? I guess they gotta make a buck somehow…

    1. It’s their way to capitalise on the Fortnite-craze and at the same time make the Switch purchase more appealing buy stating “You don’t have to buy a game to start playing”.

      1. Considering this is the first Nintendo console not to have a pack-in game after Wii and Wii U, I guess that makes sense. Should be a first-party Nintendo game though, and I still say it should be 1-2-Switch as it’s nothing more than a glorified tech demo.

        1. I do totally agree that it should be a Nintendo title, but from a business (and somewhat cold) perspective, it doesn’t cut on the profitmargin for Switch if they share a game that’s free and they haven’t put development money into. 1-2-Switch would be fine as a bundle-in, but Nintendo do want people to buy that as well… Sigh…

  3. Honestly if I got one of these I’d take the sticker off and use it somewhere else. It’s not a bad sticker.

    Anything to sell the system!

  4. This helps Fortnite more than it helps Nintendo. I don’t understand what they were thinking! If Fortnite was preloaded it would make sense but this is just silly.

      1. What is your problem? Are you just going to stalk all my posts just to ask that? You must really have nothing better to do, which is quite sad.

        I think YOU are the one who’s gonna cry now.
