Epic Games has announced that Fornite will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, and sooner than expected, it is available now as a free download on the Nintendo eShop. However, TechCrunch is reporting that Sony is blocking cross-platform play between the Switch and the PS4, similar to what they already do with the Xbox One.
