Fortnite for Nintendo Switch Update Removes Video Capture Support

Because of technical issues.

A new content update for Fortnite on Nintendo Switch has disabled a popular Switch feature: video capturing.

The update, v5.40.2, brings about a number of changes to the popular battle royale game by Epic. Most changes, like the vaulting of the Drum Gun, are to be expected. One of the more upsetting and unexpected changes was the sudden loss of video capture support.

Community coordination Sean Hamilton posted on the Fortnite subreddit, explaining that the reason for this is due to performance issues.

You may have noticed weve disabled the Video Capture feature on Nintendo Switch as of the v5.40.2 client update. This was done for performance and stability reasons as weve been seeing a high rate of Out of Memory related crashes. Disabling this feature saves a significant amount of RAM while also having a positive effect on overall performance across the board.


Since the Nintendo Switch version of the game lacks the replay option popular in the other variations, the video capture support was their primary way of recording gameplay content. Hamilton stated that Epic will consider bringing the option back, should they resolve the technical issues involved.
