The world can't get enough of the Battle Royale genre, a new(ish) offshoot of the online multiplayer shooter. Players airdrop into an open map, scavenge for weapons, then get funnelled towards one another in a last-man-standing shootout.
Two particular games have come to dominate this emerging sub-genre: PlayerUnknown's Battleground (PUBG) and Fortnite. Millions of people are now playing these games across a wide range of systems.
Which leads me to ask one simple question: why the heck aren't they available on the Nintendo Switch already? They really should be, you know.
Switching things up
Nintendo sold almost 15 million Switch consoles in 2017, despite it only launching last March. By way of a comparison, its predecessor the Wii U took five years to sell 13.5 million.
