    1. Yes.
      Here’s what you gotta do, go to your local retailer that sell video game console, and buy one.
      Now if you live in one of those from each according to his ability, to each according to his need countries, just say “no” when they ask if you already have one.

    2. Probably not. In the future they might make it available in the in-game shop. But for now it’s tied to the bundle, much like the PS4 bundle skin and, most recently, the Galaxy skin for the Note 9 and/or Tab S4 buyers.

      1. If they do it like PS4 and eventually put the skin with a controller I’ll be able to exchange for it due to my extended warranty lol.

    3. Only idiots buy skins (in any game). Total waste of money. Purchase a good eShop game like Hollow Knight instead. Costs even less!

    1. It’s the same price as a regular switch so you are not paying more for this bundle. Plus you are getting V-bucks and some skins that’s your bonus. This will do well with the kids which are all over Fornite right now.

    2. Well you get some extras to use in the game but its probably also about spreading awareness that you can play Fortnite on Switch to those less informed.

    1. Because nothing is for free. The developers are in the business of making money not charity. Am sure Epic is getting a portion of the sells on these bundles

    1. The more different bundle they have for XMAS the more Swicth’s they will sell for this holiday season. It’s a marketing strategy dude

      1. Yep, these bundles are here mainly for the Black Friday and Christmas shoppers. In fact, the Smash bundle releases a month ahead of its release.

      2. Yeah, I get that… But, looking at traditional strategies for holidays, they’d usually focus on 1 or 2 games for the bundle.
        Splatoon bundle is still out there…
        Well, I’m sure nothing can go wrong. It’s a really strong move and I’m sure Epic will be so happy with this.

  1. Oddly enough this is just a special color variant of a skin, Glider, Back Bling and Pickaxe I already have in the game. Still cool though, assuming they would ever sell this version of the skin in the store that’s probably like $45 worth of in-game purchases that you’re getting for free if you buy this bundle. Great for people who already play Fortnite on other platforms and are interested in a Switch as well.

  2. What about the people that already have a switch why can’t they make it a god dam free skin like they did with PlayStation plus the whole point of a exclusive skin is to make it that anyone that already has the console can get it
