After releasing for Nintendo Switch back in June, Fortnite will now be getting its own special Switch bundle next month. Today, developer Epic Games announced the new Fortnite Double Helix console bundle for Nintendo Switch, which features V-Bucks, a unique outfit, and other in-game items.
The Fortnite Double Helix Nintendo Switch bundle will sell for a retail price of $300, which is the same price as a regular Switch console. The Fortnite Switch bundle doesn’t feature a custom design for the console itself, though it will have the blue and red Joy-Cons. What’s special about the bundle are the in-game goodies that Fortnite fans can look forward to.

The bundle will feature the Double Helix Set, which includes a custom Outfit, Back Bling, Glider, and Pickaxe, as well as 1,000 V-Bucks that can be put towards purchasing the Battle Pass or other in-game items. The Fortnite Double Helix Switch bundle is scheduled to launch on October 5.
Fortnite is currently free-to-play on all platforms, including Nintendo Switch, and should remain free even after the arrival of Nintendo Switch Online, which launches today, November 18.
