Fortnite Coming to Nintendo Switch Tomorrow

Nintendo Switch Hackers Being Banned From Online Services: Reports Fortnite Coming to Nintendo Switch Tomorrow

A nine-year-old girl in the United Kingdom is so gripped with the game, she wet herself, instead of putting down the controller to go to the toilet, the Sunday People reported.

When they asked their daughter what was wrong, she turned "unusually argumentative and aggressive".

But one little girl has taken her obsession with the Hunger Games-style video game to a new and distressing level.

A nine-year-old girl is in rehab after becoming so addicted to a video game she wet herself to avoid moving and hit her father when he tried to stop her playing.

Early this morning, Simon Aarons tweeted a screenshot of Fortnite data pulled from Nintendo's eShop servers (more here, and a screenshot right on Nintendo's server here) as they prepare for the game's release.

Since the game was launched in July past year more than 40 million people have downloaded it.

Her parents also noticed payments totalling more than £50 a month were being paid to Microsoft from their credit card.

One night Richard found her in her room at night "sitting on a urine-soaked cushion playing the game".

"Of course we were furious and confiscated her Xbox", said her mother.

When they questioned her, the girl broke down and told them everything.

But, now horrified parents have come forward to tell how their daughter became hooked to the game and would play up to 10 hours straight.

"I'll wake up at, like, 5am, get dressed then I'll play for two hours before school".

However, counsellor Steve Pope, who is treating the girl, warned it could be a "gateway" into further addictions in later life. It'll be interesting to see how Fortnite for Nintendo Switch stacks up against other versions of the game particularly Fortnite on iOS.
