Switch will not be bitten by the cold.

EA's first console game for Nintendo in over four years will be launching at the end of September.

FIFA 18 has been confirmed as the final title for the Switch version of the game, which will release on September 29 worldwide. The Switch version was not included on platforms that use the EA Frostbite engine for the game, and will not include "The Journey", a special story mode.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Portguese international who recently won his second consecutive UEFA Champions League title with Real Madrid, will serve as the game's cover athlete.

The game will launch with a companion app for phones that compliments Ultimate Team. The app will not support the Switch version of the game so no Ultimate Team on Switch.


No Ultimate Team. No story mode. No Frostbite Engine. Most likely shallower depth in online modes than other consoles. But I'm sure those Switch-specific features are (probably maybe sorta) not going to suck. Business decisions.

So, it'll basically be the last FIFA game they gave us with a roster update?  Maybe slightly better graphics?

I don't play Ultimate Team and the Frostbite engine kind of broke things to a certain extent in last year's version, so I'm still in, but this isn't encouraging.
