Nintendo introduces Fortnite Switch bundle with V-bucks included

Console bundle is the same price as system alone, includes in-game currency and exclusive cosmetics

Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Switch hardware bundle that's a bit different from its existing and past bundles.

The Fortnite bundle, which launches on October 5, is the same price as a basic Nintendo Switch ($299.99) and includes the same hardware. However, it also includes 1,000 V-bucks (about $10 worth of currency) for use in Fortnite and a unique cosmetic set called the Double Helix Set. To ensure these rewards are transmitted, the bundle includes Fortnite pre-installed on the system, though the game is a free download on any Switch system anyway.

The bundle's description suggests the currency be used to purchase a Battle Pass for 950 V-bucks, unlocking a season's worth of in-game activities.

Other Nintendo Switch bundles available include a Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle and Marios Tennis Aces bundle at $359.99 and Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu! and Let's Go Eevee bundles for $399.99 (to account for the Poke Ball Plus controller included).
