Although it doesn’t look as nice as it does on PC and the other consoles, the Nintendo Switch version of Fortnite is a solid release, perfect for handheld play. While graphics aren’t everything, they do matter, and so Epic Games released an update that improves the game’s resolution.

The new Fortnite Nintendo Switch update increases the resolution in both Handheld and Docked modes. The Handheld resolution has been increased to 1170×600 from 1000×560 while Docked resolution has been bumped up to 1560×880 from 1390×780.

Additionally, the new update also seems to have improved performance, as Fortnite now runs on Nintendo Switch at a more stable 30 frames per second framerate.

Later today, all those who have signed up in the Fortnite Crew will receive some additional content as well.

On March 31 at approximately 5 p.m. PT, active Fortnite Crew members will receive a Crew Pack featuring the Alli Outfit, the Squee Back Bling, the picked clean Skellyfish Pickaxe, the paw-plentiful Cat’s Paw Wrap and the Catwalk Loading Screen. The cat-like Alli is Lynx’s once-estranged sister who brings her own sense of feline fashion to the game, so suit up for some hair-raising hijinks

Fortnite is now available on Nintendo Switch, PC, consoles and Android devices.
