Nintendo thrilled and surprised the gaming industry this week when it added Fortnite to it's popular Switch console.

"I played it. It's amazing," said eSports commentator and Twitch broadcaster Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez. "The Switch is a great console but often times it can be bogged down by its hardware. But not Fortnite. It plays so smoothly."

The game's popularity has soared since its debut last year. The game's publisher, Epic Games, said it had 3.4 million concurrent players as of February.

The company hosted its first-ever Celebrity Fortnite Pro-Am at the Banc of California Stadium during the E3 conference this week. Hundreds of fans attended live and more than 1 million tuned in via Twitch.

"I did not know that we sold out when I got to the arena," he said. "They were even talking about letting more people in. That's how insane it was."

Goldenboy will co-host Cheddar Sports on Thursday, June 21, at 3:30 pm ET.
