Fortnite Joy-Cons Announced with Bonus In-Game Items

Nintendo has announced that a Fortnite Joy-Cons bundle will be arriving later this year and it's going to have more than a couple of controllers — it's also going to include some V-Bucks and the Fleet Force Bundle of in-game items.

Fortnite has proven to be an immensely popular Battle Royale and it has no shortage of branded items for superfans to buy. Nintendo has even released a special branded Nintendo Switch bundle for the game. The special version of the console has Fortnite imagery on it, and now a brand-new piece of hardware is on the way.


At first glance, the Fortnite Joy-Cons look very similar to what you get with the existing Nintendo Switch bundle — but there are some subtle differences. The Nintendo Switch bundle has a yellow left Joy-Con and a blue right Joy-Con and today's newly-announced bundle switches the colors: the left Joy-Con is blue and the right Joy-Con is yellow. That's not the only change, though — these new Joy-Cons also have new decals emblazoned on the controllers.

In addition to the controllers themselves, buying the Fortnite Joy-Con bundle will secure you the following in-game bonuses according to today's announcement:

  • 500 V-Bucks
  • A new Glider
  • Two other cosmetic items

When is the Fortnite Joy-Cons Release Date?

The Fortnite Joy-Cons release date is June 4, 2021. Nintendo has not announced a price, but it will probably match the typical price of the controllers ranging from $69.99–$79.99 or your regional equivalent.


For now, those of you who don't want to wait could choose to buy the Fortnite Nintendo Switch bundle for $404.99 and get a specially-branded Nintendo Switch console and a bunch of cool in-game items. You can play Fortnite for free on PC and consoles right now.
