The Popular IP May Finally Be Receiving Its Nintendo Switch Version
Iron Galaxy is the game developer studio who pride themselves on wonderfully crafted ports. Currently, they have an open position for a director in game design, which led to their reveal of a Nintendo Switch port for Fortnite. Maybe.
Iron Galaxy is the studio behind numerous game ports over the years, many of which people don’t even know about. But, they fell under the spotlight when they delivered Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch. If their pre-edited job listing provides any clue, their rep is about to expand. Right now, their job listing reads as such:
“…the critically acclaimed Killer Instinct, and Divekick; which are complimented by our technically superb work on the Skyrim switch port.”
However, the listing was written differently yesterday:
“…the critically acclaimed Killer Instinct, and Divekick; which are complimented by our technically superb Fortnite and Skyrim Switch ports.”
This may be the closest we get to a tongue slip in a listing. According to Iron Galaxy, yesterday, their portfolio included none other than Fortnite. Considering it’s the biggest multiplatform multiplayer game played today, you’d understand why’d they take pride in porting it to the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately for them, that eagerness may have led to their dropping the ball. Assuming the listing wasn’t a typo, fans of Fortnite and the Nintendo Switch have reason to celebrate.
It’s worth noting that Epic’s worldwide creative director, Donald Mustard, has already expressed a desire to see Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch. Considering Iron Galaxy’s track record in porting content, it’s understandable they’d be selected for the job. However, like all leaks, this is worth taking with a grain of salt. Expect updates as time goes by. At the time of this writing, Iron Galaxy, Nintendo, and Epic Games have not commented.
