Fortnite players on the Nintendo Switch could be the recipients of an exclusive new skin soon, according to new data-mined information.

Consistent Fortnite data miner HYPEX found new evidence of a potential Nintendo skin in the game’s files after the new 12.60 update last night.

The file ID simply says “Cosmetics.Source.Platform.Nintendo” in the leak, so there’s not much information to go on. But certain things can be extrapolated from the filename. “Cosmetics” and “Nintendo” is enough to get people excited for another new Switch skin.

In October 2018, Nintendo got the Double Helix outfit and cosmetic pack as part of a Switch Fortnite console bundle. Since then, there have been other console-exclusive skins for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The Double Helix bundle came with the outfit, a harvesting tool, a glider, and 1,000 V-Bucks. If Nintendo gets a new skin, it’s unknown whether it’ll be a free offer or a paid bundle.

For now, those who enjoy playing Fortnite on the go with their Switch have reason to be excited until any confirmation of a new skin comes from Epic.
