Although a specific time of the day has been given for when the Fortnite download will be activated tomorrow on the eShop, we'd surmise that it will happen at 12PM EST tomorrow morning or shortly thereafter. A new entry in the popular Mario Party series, which blends video game and board game together, will be released on 5 October.

A nine-year-old girl in the United Kingdom is so gripped with the game, she wet herself, instead of putting down the controller to go to the toilet, the Sunday People reported.

Fortnite has exploded in popularity since launching in July past year.

The girl's mum Carole, 36, told the Sunday People: "We had no idea, when we let her play the game, of the addictive nature or the impact it could have on her mental health". A player's aim is to collect items while remaining in the safe zone, away from the storm which gets bigger, and to be the sole person left standing.

"She was so hooked to the game she wouldn't even go to the toilet", the child's mother said, via the Daily Mail.

Upon realizing how seriously addicted their daughter was to Fortnite, her parents, Carol and Richard, sought out the help of a psychotherapist named Steve Pope.

When they confronted their daughter about it, she said she had paid for extras on the Fortnite game.
