Reggie says Nintendo Switch Online is the successor to the Virtual Console

Allowing players to band together regardless of their console, "cross-play" blurs the lines between ecosystems, making it easier than ever to play with friends.

Right now, it looks like only Nintendo Switch players are getting these countdowns, with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile players devoid of them.

Alongside their current headset models, Turtle Beach also announced two other new products at E3 this year: the Recon 200 and Stealth 300 headsets, both optimized for Battle Royale gaming on Switch, specifically with Fortnite. You can also use the Nintendo Switch Online app to voice chat in your play sessions.

Cross-platform play is very much in the minds of players right now, particularly because of the outcry over how Sony is handling Fortnite.

So, there are a lot of reasons why cross-platform play would be great for Federation Internationale de Football Association - and it sounds like the developers agree.

While the specific steps behind using cross-play vary from game to game, there are some common prerequisites to meet between titles.

It is official. Epic Games' Fortnite Battle Royale is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year and it will arrive with a number of new features to offer.

Currently, the game has no cross-platform play.

More than 125 million people have already tried out Fortnite, and the game has been downloaded more than 2 million times on the Nintendo Switch thus far. Among these is Microsoft, with Nintendo Switch cross-play support on track for 2018 and other upcoming multiplayer titles.

Taking everything into consideration, it will be interesting to see what will come of Fortnite's mysterious countdown timer, as Epic Games could be using the placement of the clock in front of the missile as a means for misdirection.
