While consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One support the use of wireless headsets, the Nintendo Switch is a different story. Nintendo has introduced a somewhat controversial method of communications, which is through the Nintendo app on the gamer’s phone. Nintendo justified this by saying that we have our phones with us all the time, making it convenient.
However the good news for Fortnite players who are planning to play the Switch version of the game, it seems that it will come with native headset support. What does this mean? This means that gamers will be able to plug a wired headset into the headphone jack on the Switch console and use it right away, without the convoluted mess of cables that was the case with Splatoon 2.
However note that this is only for wired headsets and if you are planning on using wireless headsets, then we guess you’d be out of luck, at least not in a straightforward manner. This was confirmed early last year where after some initial confusion about whether or not Bluetooth headsets was supported, it was later revealed that it wouldn’t.
That being said, Fortnite for the Switch is already available and playable, so if you haven’t downloaded it already, what are you waiting for?
