Banana Joy-Cons? Banana Joy-Cons

Fortnite fans will finally be able to buy Joy-Cons that match their favorite game, Nintendo and Epic announced today. The Fortnite-themed Nintendo Switch controllers — featuring a blue and yellow color scheme, with a banana face around the home button on the yellow side — will launch on June 4.

The Fortnite Joy-Cons also come with some in-game goodies. The Fleet Force Bundle appears to be exclusive to the Joy-Cons and features a unique glider and pickaxe. The glider mimics the Joy-Con’s blue and yellow aesthetic, and the pickaxe is at least partially made of lightning. The bundle also comes with 500 V-Bucks, Fortnite’s in-game currency.

While the bundle won’t launch until later this year, the announcement comes as a celebration for fans as Fortnite chapter 2 season 5 comes to a close. We’re not sure what season 6’s theme will be, but we do know that season 5 will end with a single player mission starring Agent Jones. Season 6 will go live on March 16.
