Fortnite uses the Switch hardware for voice chat, not the Switc




  • Following the announcement and sudden discharge of Fortnite with the Nitnedo Switch, they behind the overall game sat right down to offer a have a look at how the action runs on Switch during Nitnedo's live-streamed Treehouse showcase.

    During part of that conversation captured by Wario64 on Twitter, it had been revealed that the free-to-play battle royale game makes use of the Switch’s own hardware for in-game voice chat.

    This is particularly notable ever since the Switch’s other Fortnite Items big multiplayer title, Splatoon 2, will not offer voice chat in the actual Switch game itself and instead requires players to download the Nintendo mobile app and route voice chat through their cellular phones.

    The actual feature goes are now living in Fortnite later this week. Fortnite’s chance to use the Switch itself for voice chat makes Nintendo’s decision make use of external hardware for Splatoon 2 much more curious, especially since Splatoon 2’s system has a complicated setup as well as an external adapter as a way to Buy Fortnite Skins capture in-game audio in the Switch and chat audio at a mobile device in a headset.
