    If there's one game from the past few years that even non-gamers have heard of, it's Fortnite. Reaching massive widespread popularity, Epic Games' title has come to multiple platforms since its initial launch, including the Nintendo Switch. And now, Nintendo and Epic Games are teaming up to release a special edition Nintendo Switch console, featuring unique Joy-Con colors as well as a console dock covered in series-related designs. This bundle comes with a yellow left Joy-Con and a right blue Joy-Con, with the latter sporting a flying bus on top of the home button.

    Extra goodies also include the free-to-play Fortnite coming pre-installed, alongside a code voucher for the Wildcat and Sleek Strike Back Bling cosmetics, and 2,000 V-Bucks ingame currency. The Fortnite special edition Nintendo Switch will be available on October 30th for Europeans, while Australia will get the console on November 6th.

    I hope for a Zelda-themed Super Nintendo Switch

    PS: Super Nintendo Switch is how I call what you guys call Switch Pro

    yea but first, it isn't for a special occasion like the 35th of mario
    secondly, only red joycon, thats all what is theme
    There should at least be a cap or a mushroom on the dock, no?

    Red joycons and a cappy carrying case is not a Mario themed switch. The switch and dock is still black like all the other ones. :blink:

    No thanks... I'd rather not buy something that Epic spent money on using such money they aquired from kids from their stolen parent's bank cards.
