If you’re trying to change your Fortnite name on Switch but can’t see the option to do it, it’s because your in-game name is attached to your Epic Games Account and not your Nintendo account.

So, players who want to change their Fortnite name while playing on Nintendo Switch can follow the steps below. Do note that Epic Games will only let you change your display name once every two weeks, so ensure that you’re sure about the name you’re going for.

How to Change your Fortnite Name on Switch

Head to the Epic Games website

You can visit the official website via a mobile phone, PC, or even the browser on Nintendo Switch. Then, log in to your Epic Games account. Make sure it’s the same account you use to play Fortnite.

Navigate to Account Settings

Keep in mind that you should avoid identifiable information such as your real name, address, social media handle or phone number. Once you’re sure of the new name, click on the check box and hit Confirm.
