After nearly 30 years, the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) and Electronic Arts (EA) have ended their long-running video game partnership.
EA has had a rocky relationship with Nintendo consoles which compared to other platforms, don’t receive as much support.
Today we have some exciting information to share with you all regarding more EA titles possibly coming to Nintendo Switch starting this year.
Today, EA has responded to backlash of them falsely promoting the FIFA 19 Futmas event for Nintendo Switch which is not even available on the platform!
Today EA and Nintendo are under fire with them possibly falsely advertising the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 19.
Oh my, how things have changed in six months time. When I last reviewed FIFA 18 on the Switch, I walked away just a little underwhelmed at the experience. It wasn’t what I was used to on more powerful consoles. The engine was different, the game played slower, there were less modes and features. And while all of that remains somewhat true, I’ve put countless hours into FIFA 18 since then. I played it on the airplane to and from San Francisco for the NISA event. I play it in bed nearly every night. I kill time with it. It’s probably one of the best and most efficient gifts I’ve ever received. In a gaming sense, FIFA 18 on the Switch became my comfort food.
During EA’s big event at Los Angeles yesterday, Eurogamer sat down with FIFA 18 producer Andrei Lazaresco to get more details on the Switch version of the game.
During the Nintendo Switch Presentation earlier this year, EA announced FIFA for Nintendo Switch would be coming in 2017. We now have confirmation that FIFA for Nintendo Switch is FIFA 18, which is also launching on other platforms at the same time on September 29th 2017.
