Today EA and Nintendo are under fire with them possibly falsely advertising the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 19.
In all versions of the game (excluding last gen and Switch), there is a FUTMAS Christmas event going on in the game to tie in with the holiday season.

The problem is, the FUTMAS event in FIFA 19 is not actually available in the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
This is false advertising from Nintendo and EA as this is also being displayed in the Nintendo Switch News channel for FIFA 19.
Check out the News screenshots below:
This of course has lead to many fans not being very happy as seen in these tweets:
@TheFUTCoach see I told you… FIFA on Switch is a train wreck… here we have Nintendo's official account promoting Futmas … while the SBC's aren't in the game and the Futmas cards aren't even in our concepts database… and we will get no official explanation from anyone

It's beyond hilarious and pathetic that the futmas campaign was shunned on the Switch while it became available for other console. And these guys here are advertising about it. It's embarrassing.

We have yet to get a response from EA or Nintendo however we will update you all of whatever happens next so stay tuned for more information.
