“So today, we’re extremely excited to announce that the world’s most popular sports game will be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.
EA SPORTS FIFA on Nintendo Switch will be the most immersive, social, and authentic sports game ever created for Nintendo players.
It will deliver the FIFA experience custom built for Nintendo Switch…so you can play anywhere, play with anyone, and play how you want to play.
If you’re at the park, at your friend’s house, or on vacation, you can always stay connected to the biggest matches. You’ll be able to get on the pitch with your favorite players and teams from the world’s best leagues in iconic stadiums from around the world…all with the unmatched authenticity and depth that FIFA is known for.
We’ll have much more to say and show in the coming months as we bring the world’s game to Nintendo Switch in 2017.”
