How much does the Switch cost?
The Nintendo Switch console has an RRP of £279.99, and although you can get the console for a few pounds cheaper than that it's much better value to get a bundle deal where you get the Nintendo Switch console plus a game or two.
Is Fortnite free on Nintendo Switch?
Yes, Fortnite is free to play on the Nintendo Switch. Other online games require a paid Nintendo Switch Online Membership for the co-op and competitive online features, including Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but Fortnite is an exception, and can be played online without paid membership.
Is Nintendo Online free?
Nintendo Switch Online Membership* is no longer free, as charges were introduced in September 2018. Prices start at £3.49 for a one month membership, though it's cheaper to get the 12 months for £17.99. There are family offers too if you have multiple switch consoles in the same home.
Can I play my 3DS games on the Switch?
No, you cannot play Nintendo 3DS games on the Switch console as it's not backwards compatible, so you can only play Nintendo Switch games.
