A limited-edition Nintendo Switch console themed on Fortnite has been announced, via NintendoLife. It’ll be releasing in Europe on October 30. There has been no confirmation on the console's price or pre-order date.

Featuring a Fortnite colour scheme and dock design, this edition of the Switch will come pre-loaded with Fortnite. The bundle will also include a code for the Wildcat Bundle, which will provide players with new in-game outfits and styles, as well as 2,000 V-Bucks to spend in the game’s store.

While there has been no official announcement around the console’s European pricing, the Australian release will carry a price tag of AU$469.95. That works out to be around £268. This conversion cannot be relied on, however, as the standard Nintendo Switch console typically retails for around £280. A £300 retail price is quite likely.

There’s no doubt that the Nintendo Switch Fortnite Edition will be high on Christmas wish lists this year, from fans of the game and console collectors alike. You’ll need to act quickly to ensure that you bag yourself a console – we’ll update this article with purchase information as soon as it becomes available.
