'Fortnite' for Switch doesn't support PlayStation-linked accounts

After the Fortnite for Nintendo Switch announcement, Nick Chester, Public Relations Manager at Epic Games, confirmed that the game would support cross-play between the various gaming systems.

A nine-year-old girl was reportedly placed in a rehab due to her addiction to an online video game, Fortnite.

Killer Queen is a multiplayer, arcade-style game that has teams of five players squaring off in a Joust-style combat.

A clip of the Spectator Mode can be found below, plus more images.

The verdict on the Switch port so far: It plays well and there's little to complain about.

Fortnite is in early access across PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and iOS.

The news rallied defenders of the law into action and raised questions among legal scholars about the likelihood it would succeed. California argued that the individual responsibility provision, though no longer enforceable as of 2019, remains constitutional.

A trailer announcing the game's arrival on Nintendo Switch was also revealed, so feel free to check it out below if you're not sure what all the hype is about. (Just for a minute, it won't kill you.) The PlayStation 4 is the top dog among the console platforms.

Naturally, her parents responded by limiting the time she spent playing the free game to one hour on weekdays and two on weekends, but things got worse ⏤ the girl started showing signs of addiction.

You need only look at Reddit and the Resetera forums to see the immediate backlash that has occurred, as excitement for Nintendo fun turned quickly to anger directed at Sony.

In addition to the game's availability on Nintendo Switch, a brand new starter pack was also made available today on all platforms. You can now log in to the Switch version if you've previously played on Xbox, PC, or mobile, so this does appear to be a PlayStation specific problem.
