Nintendo have just announced the Double Helix Nintendo Switch bundle for Fortnite Battle Royale.

The bundle, which includes a Nintendo Switch console, Joy-Con controllers, controller grip, and the Fortnite Battle Royale Double Helix Bundle, launches on October 5th – according to a new announcement by Nintendo of America.

The Double Helix bundle includes the Double Helix Set – consisting of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe. The official press releases states that the bundle with have a Recommended Retail Price of $299.99 USD.

“In Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, jump in to be the last one standing in a high-stakes game of 100-player Battle Royale. Build huge forts. Outwit your opponents. Earn your Victory Royale. Squad up together online with friends in the same room or around the world. Regular updates to the game add fresh gameplay modes, outfits, weapons and items to Fortnite, such as the upcoming Season 6 content.”

The skin should be a relief to people who are wanting to buy a Nintendo Switch but were disheartened that the only console to receive an exclusive Fortnite bundle was Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro Royale Bomber bundle. For $299.99 USD, the bundle is quite an expensive one – but it’s the same as buying a Switch with no games included, so you’re not paying more.

Either way, what do you think of the bundle?
