How to link an Epic Games Account to your Nintendo Account for Fortnite
So you want to play Fortnite on your Nintendo Switch with the same skins, weapons, and other items that you did on other consoles or your computer? Only by linking your Epic Games and Nintendo accounts will you be able to go on such an adventure.
By linking your Epic Games account to your Nintendo account, you’ll be able to synchronize all of your game progress from whichever other platform you played Fortnite on, as well as leverage cross-platform capabilities to play Fortnite with other players. Let’s get started with the linking procedure, which is actually rather simple once you know the stages.
When you first start Fortnite on the Switch, you’ll be prompted to choose a user profile to which you want to attach your Epic Games account. Select your profile if you already have a Nintendo account. After the game has finished loading, hit A to proceed to the login screen. Select “Sign Up” if you don’t already have an Epic Games account. Select “Login” if you don’t want to log out. Enter the email address and password connected with your Epic Games account by following the on-screen instructions. After that, your Epic Games. Account will be linked to your Nintendo Account, and you’ll be able to play Fortnite on your Switch with all of your saved skins.
You can also use a web browser to link your Epic Games account to your Nintendo Account. Simply visit the official Fortnite website and log in using your email address and password. Hover your mouse over your username and select Account, then Connected Accounts. Click Connect when you find the Nintendo Switch icon. After that, enter your Nintendo account information and click “Sign In.”
