How To Change Your Name On Fortnite For Nintendo Switch

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7 is almost over, and Switch players may be wondering how to change their name before the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8.

Fortnite remains a success on pretty much every platform that it’s been released on, including the Nintendo Switch.

The game is basically playable on any platform so it runs fine on Switch and players even got a special console release dedicated to Fortnite, complete with joycons that reference the game’s popular banana Skin, Peely.

However, the game being on Switch means that there are more casual players trying the game out since there was a surge in sales for the console during the height of the pandemic.

Some Fortnite Switch players have had a hard time changing their public name on the game but it is thankfully actually not that difficult.

All players have to do is sign in to the game, click their name on top of the profile, select public profile, then click update, which they should see below your name.

While most Fortnite players are aware of this, there is definitely a younger or more casual audience that might not be know these things as they are too focused on shooting other players and unlocking Superman.

Once Fortnite players have changed their name, they can continue having that signature Fortnite gameplay that has proven to be a big success for Epic Games.

The fact that it is available on nearly every gaming platform available, aside from iPhones due to that ongoing lawsuit, shows how on-demand this shooter has been since its initial release.


Most people see Fortnite as the face of the battle royale genre and people cannot blame anyone for that, though there are surely some PUBG players who will take offense to that.

Fortnite ended up becoming a more appealing experience thanks to it being free-to-play and having some more attractive character models, among other things. 

Fortnite is available now on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
