Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Fortnite on Nintendo Switch has been downloaded 2 million times in its first day

Thought this was interesting enough to have its own thread.Seems like the adoption of the game on the Switch has started well enough, wether those 2 millions are existing players of the game or new ones.

That's a lot of downloads.



So it's a million download game, huh? I'll add it to the list.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

3.8 Petabytes of Fortnite passed down from eshop to Switches around the world in 24 hours.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

So it has voice chat? Huh, didn't know but I thought something was up.

Yeah.for some reason, Epic managed to get voice chat working on Switch but not Nintendo.Go figure what Nintendo is thinking when they make decisions like that.

It has? Can you use it on the Switch, or do you need the Splatoon device to do so?

Yeah.You can use voice chat through the Switch directly, just conecting a headset with audio output into the you can put your earphones.

 

Why Nintendo dosent do the same?Beats me.

I'm no fan of the route Nintendo went with voice chat, but they'd wanted to make something that would allow it even when there's no access to wifi.

Not really defending, but that was the rationale behind it apparently. You'd think they could offer both.
