We’ve been led to believe by Nintendo that the Switch itself is not really capable of voice chat. After all, that’s why the company required players to use its proprietary phone app to use voice chat in Splatoon 2. However, it seems like this might not actually be the case. Fortnite creator Epic Games announced today that starting June 14, Fortnite will have native voice chat. The game won’t require any special headset, any one that can plug into a headphone jack will do.
Fortnite launched today on the eShop following Nintendo’s E3 presentation. Have you downloaded the title yet?
