Does the Fortnite V-Bucks Card Work on Nintendo Switch?
Fortnite V-Bucks cards are digital currency debit cards that Fortnite players use to purchase the game’s premium currency—V-Bucks. These cards are universal, so you can use them on any platform you’re using to play Fortnite, including Nintendo Switch.
How Do You Redeem a Fortnite Gift Card on Switch?
Before you can redeem a Fortnite V-Bucks card, you have to link your Nintendo account to your Epic Games account. Anyone who’s played Fortnite before already has an Epic Games profile, so you should be good there. Now all that’s left is to connect the account to your console.
If you haven't created a Nintendo account yet, you can do it on the Nintendo website.
