How To Change Your Name on Fortnite For Nintendo Switch

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's actually not that difficult, thankfully.

All you have to do is sign in to the game, click your name on top of the profile, select public profile, then click update, which you 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 aware of these simple things since they’re too focused on shooting and unlocking Batman or Wolverine.

Once you’ve changed your name after realizing a mistake was made (or thought of something cooler), you can continue having that signature Fortnite gameplay that has proven to be a big success for Epic Games.


The fact that it’s 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 we can’t blame anyone for that, though we’re sure some PUBG players will take offense to that.

Fortnite just 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.
