Nintendo Reveals New Nintendo Switch Fortnite Bundle

It’s enough to make you do a silly dance.

If you’re not quite up to waiting until November 2nd to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch with the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Set bundle, then Nintendo has another solution coming soon that may appeal more to you.

On that day, they’ll be releasing the Fortnite – Double Helix bundle, which includes the console and a bunch of in-game goodies for the free-to-play hit title. There’s the eponymous “Double Helix Set,” which is comprised of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider, and Pickaxe (which is apparently a proper noun now? That’s branding for you). You’ll also get 1,000 V-bucks, the in-game currency, with which you can purchase a Battle Pass, which itself unlocks even more in-game content, or can alternatively be used to purchase still other in-game items.

All this can be yours for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $379.99 on October 5th — just a fortnight away.
