However, it's not uncommon for kids to sometimes get worse grades here and there, so the parents didn't imagine at the time that it was linked to a video game.

It is a very large inflatable, coming in at 40x30 feet. The port is out today, and only contains the game's Battle Royale mode, but will allow you to jump in for free and play probably the biggest game in the world right now.

Schools are writing to parents telling them the hugely popular game is having a disastrous affect on youngsters' concentration levels in the classroom.

She is also said to have wet herself rather than pause the game.

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.

Carol said her "backside was red-raw, she was so hooked to the game she wouldn't even go to the toilet".

The Switch is a great platform for the title, what with its console/handheld hybrid status and the popularity of playing Fortnite anywhere and everywhere, on seemingly any device that can possibly play a video game.

Once a keen sportswoman, the youngster starting saying she was too exhausted to do gym or ballet classes and avoided going to church on Sunday with her family.

"This is a serious issue which is destroying our little girl's life and someone needs to step in to ban it before it becomes an epidemic".

The child's addiction became so severe that she lashed out at her dad when he tried to confiscate the Xbox console.

Their daughter had been waiting until her parents fell asleep and then playing Fortnite until 5am, for the last two months. "My husband saw her light on in the night and found her sitting on a urine-soaked cushion playing the game", Carol said. Pope went on to say that he has never seen anything as "potentially damaging" to children as Fortnite addiction.
