If I live in Japan and have already been playing Fortnite, can I switch my progress to my JP PSN Account?
We recently released Fortnite on Japanese Playstation 4, and we understand that some of our audience has already been playing Fortnite using PSN accounts set to other regions.
Epic Games Support can help these players associate their existing progress to their Japanese PSN accounts.
All progress, V-bucks, and stats will be maintained when performing this procedure.
If you are a Japan-region player and would like assistance with this, you are able to do so manually by visiting your Connected Accounts page.
FAQ: Q: I received an email asking me to promote my account. Why is that necessary? A: We need to promote your account to allow the account to be identifiable when your PSN is removed. If not, the account data is at risk of being lost because your PSN is associated with a 'Blank Epic Account'.
