Nintendo Switch Hackers Being Banned From Online Services: Reports

Update (18:45 BST): It seems if you've also previously played Fortnite on the PS4, you need to create a new Epic account to login on the Switch. However, by mid-march, her school reported her slacking and snoozing in the class.

An Epic games representative told GameSpot, "We have no plans for Save the World on Switch".

"This is a serious issue which is destroying our little girl's life and someone needs to step in to ban it before it becomes an epidemic".

The girl's parents bought her the Xbox in January and she downloaded Fornite - endorsed by numerous celebrities - soon after. They must be active in the chat to win, and two bags will be given out per channel.

When they asked their daughter what was wrong, she turned "unusually argumentative and aggressive". The girl also used her parents' credit card to purchase Fortnite's microtransactions, spending about £50 each month. "But then she lashed out and hit my husband in the face".

The first clues to her addiction came from her schoolteacher, who started expressing concern for the girl.

Children are getting hooked on the battle-style video game.

Addictions counsellor Steve Pope, who treated the nine-year-old, said he had been contacted by parents of children as young as eight about possible Fortnite addictions.

The popular battle royale game is easily one of the most accessible titles on the market, both with a full version port to mobile and its cross-platform play.

"Fortnite" combines the building mechanics of "Minecraft" with the shooter aesthetics of the game "Overwatch".
