(Pocket-lint) - Nintendo is seemingly capitalising on the Epic vs Apple battle, by releasing a Fortnite themed Switch bundle. 

This is a limited edition bundle that includes everyone's favourite portable console along with a number of other treats for Fortnite fans. It sports an "exclusive" theme with blue and yellow Joy-Cons, a Fornite design on the rear of the console, and a matching dock design, too.

Alongside the snazzy console design, there are also a few highlights that are bound to please Fortnite lovers.

The game comes pre-installed, and with the included Wildcat Bundle download code, you not only get access to the Wildcat Outfit, but also a few other treats. Those include a Sleek Strike Back Bling and additional styles as well as 2,000 V-Bucks to spend in-game. 

Fortnite is not new to Switch, of course. It's been around since June 2018, but it's certainly interesting to see Nintendo releasing this limited edition console in such a timely fashion. Nintendo says that Fornite is the most downloaded game ever launched on its console in Europe and there are millions of players currently battling it out on their TVs or consoles every week.

It helps, of course, that Fortnite is free to play.

The £279.99 Nintendo Switch Fortnite Special Edition bundle is available to buy from the Nintendo Official UK Store in Europe. NitendoLife also reports that the bundle will be available from 6 November in Australia and New Zealand.
