'Fortnite' is coming to Nintendo Switch today

12 June 2018

After a series of $67 charges were placed on the family's credit card by the girl for premium in-game items, her father went to confiscate the Xbox and was struck in the face by the out-of-control kid. And with absolutely zero barriers to entry, you should definitely download this free-to-play battle royale game.

Just two months later they became concerned about her behaviour after the head teacher asked to speak to them about her ailing grades and sleeping in lessons. According to The Sun, Fornite has 40 million downloads since its launch, last July.

All that's left is for Epic Games or Nintendo to officially announce Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch which we should see at E3 2018 at Nintendo's conference along with a release date. A couple from the United Kingdom sent their 9-year-old daughter to rehab after she became addicted to "Fortnite". The girl admitted to playing the game at night in secret, for up to ten hours at a time.

Carol said her "backside was red-raw, she was so hooked to the game she wouldn't even go to the toilet".

Once a keen sportswoman, the youngster starting saying she was too exhausted to do gym or ballet classes and avoided going to church on Sunday with her family.

Therapist Steve Pope, who is treating the troubled girl, slammed the game as a "gateway" into further addictions and gambling in later life. The game's rise in popularity has led to numerous other developers attempting to inject the mode into their own IPs, including Activision with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and EA with Battlefield V. "I've been working in this field for three decades and never seen anything like it, how widespread and potentially damaging this is", he said. Free-to-play games have already existed on the Switch, but Fortnite is especially interesting given its reliance on online play.

"She is in therapy for the addiction after she became withdrawn, agitated and disturbed from playing up to 10 hours a day - sometimes playing until dawn, wetting herself so she didn't have to leave the screen".
