Epic Games – Fortnite

 

Fortnite's Battle Royale On-The-Go

Epic Games approached us to help develop a trailer for their massively popular battle royale game, Fortnite. After much anticipation, the world’s most popular game was coming to the world’s most popular handheld gaming platform, the Nintendo Switch. We produced the live-action portions of the trailer, depicting various game-play scenarios in various Raleigh locations.

The video premiered on Nintendo Direct during the 2018 E3 conference. Fortnite for Switch was available for download immediately after the announcement and was downloaded over 2 million times in the first 24 hours, making it an extremely successful launch for Nintendo.

To date, the video has almost 7 million views on the official Fortnite YouTube page and over 2 million on Nintendo’s YouTube channel. With over 40,000 twitter engagements and 500,000 views and 5,000 shares on Facebook, the video was a major success for Epic Games and the launch of Fortnite on the Switch platform.
