Every Super Smash Bros. character ever will be playable on the Switch

It announced that Fortnite, the massively popular online battle-royale game, is now available for the console, and will be joined by a host of other new third-party games by the end of the year, including Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Paladins, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
