Linking PlayStation and Nintendo Switch accounts problem

I'm trying to link my PlayStation and Nintendo Switch accounts so I can have my Switch purchases on the PlayStation. However when I try to do this via the Epic Games connections page I get an error saying 'sorry this psn account has already been associated with another Epic Games account'.

How can I resolve this. I have no idea what the other Epic Games account is - is there any way of finding it?

Many thanks

Is it Fornite you're trying to have linked? I think you just go to the epic games fortnite page and it should ask if you if you already play the game. When you reply yes, choose Nintendo icon and then you get page of icons, one of which will be for the PS4 - you click "Connect' under that icon and then just log in with your PSN ID - that's it.

Having said all that I have had trouble before linking various Epic accounts. Top tip - launch a private/incognito browser session and log in through that (so it doesn't use session cookies etc) - that seems more reliable
