Fortnite Battle Royale

After weeks of rumours, Fortnite Battle Royale has finally arrived on Nintendo Switch, but how does it compare to the PlayStation version?

Epic’s free-to-play battle royale game hit the Nintendo eShop yesterday, shortly after the company’s E3 2018 Nintendo Direct broadcast.

The biggest story immediately after launch centred on users being unable to use Epic accounts that have previously been associated with the PS4 version of the game.

YouTube channel VG Tech has wasted no time in comparing the two versions of Fortnite, with a look at the Switch edition’s graphics, frame rate, and resolution, in both docked and handheld modes.

According to VG Tech, when played in docked mode Fortnite on Switch uses a dynamic resolution, ranging between 1093×615 and 1600×900.

If you want to dig into the minutiae of the game’s Switch performance, VG Tech has also prepared a document breaking down total frame amounts, frame time counts, screen tearing, and more. There’s also a full graphical comparison video that shows that Fortnite on Switch, looks, well, just like Fortnite.

Account woes aside – which are largely down to Sony – the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite looks to perform about as well as we might expect.
