Well, that was quick. Fortnite is off to an incredible start on the Nintendo Switch. The game went live yesterday after Nintendo’s press conference, at around noon Eastern time, and now it has been downloaded more than two million times on the console. Crazy!
“Fortnite’s launch went extremely well — we had more than 2 million downloads in less than 24 hours,” Reggie Fils-Aime, president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, told Polygon in an interview at E3 2018 today. “I think that speaks to the power of the franchise, the engagement of our players and the resonance of being able to play it anytime, anywhere.”
