@mav-i-am As much as I'll prefer the full control setup, to omit a single joy con control scheme would mean missing out on one of Switch's biggest selling points.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

I avoid sports games like the plague.

But, I loved soccer as a kid, growing up in junior high and high school. I want to support 3rd party devs on Switch, and started wondering if maybe I should give sports games another chance. Believe it or not, I actually used to love EA Hockey games and baseball games, even basketball games (never football though, I have yet to find one I like).

So uh... ya. I'll give FIFA and NBA2k a spin this time. Does seem like good games for multiplayer at least, and everyone else in the world besides me loves sports so, shouldn't be hard convincing a coworker to play with me.

As a huge football fan (Celtic supporter) and someone who,since the original FIFA Soccer in 93 bought it practically every season,(with some WC editions in between) until 2010,I should be hyped for this.It's been 7 long years since my last FIFA and I've said it numerous times in the past here that it's one of the games that the Switch needs to have for it to be successful. But now that we know it's coming,I'm not hyped for it,far from it.In fact I dread it.It'll no doubt be gimped in some way,how much so remains to be seen.Either way,it's a game that is guaranteed to bring a lot of negativity online to the Switch.Unless it's a perfect port of the FIFA 18 the others receive and arrives on the same day,nothing good can come from this.

Parity will determine whether I will continue to support the FIFA franchise on Switch in the years to come (assuming that EA continue to support the Switch, and I won't hold my breath), but I intend to purchase FIFA 18 regard of how scaled back it may be (though maybe not at launch price).

I'm just the same. I bought FIFA 13 for the Wii U for about £10 (used), and it's still my most played Wii U game (even though I've not actually touched it for months due to susceptibility to addiction).

Provided the gameplay is great (as it was in 13) I don't need parity and just want one portable HD FIFA, but if parity is provided then it will increase the amount I'm willing to pay and the likelihood of me getting future iterations.

I really hope they get this right and we get a great portable FIFA I have lost interest in getting ti every year but if I can take it on the go I might be tempted back.

I wouldn't read too much into this. All footage in commercials are super-imposed, so it's likely they used the PS3/360 version as a proof of concept.

Just been reading this http://www.shacknews.com/article/99019/rumor-nintendo-switch-... It is only a rumour at the moment. The article is about free to play games but something in it did catch my eye. Which will most likely effect FIFA 18 on the switch when it comes to game modes (if this is true of course).

"Nintendo Switch will only provide support for standard DLC, one-time purchase items, or subscription based purchase. Basically no micro transaction support". Since Ultimate Team relies heavily on micro transactions. I just don't think the switch version will include that game mode.

Apparently Arms can be played with single joycons but has a restricted number of moves, so why wouldn't FIFA do the same?

@mav-i-am Well, for me at least, the problem is that FIFA's control scheme is pretty ingrained. D-pad does tactics, L and R buttons modify, right-stick does tricks etc.

I could live without being able to adjust tactics in-game, but take anything else away and I'm gonna feel like I'm playing a compromised version. A single joy con has no d-pad and no right thumbstick. People won't like there being a different Switch-only control scheme (unless it adds something, rather than taking something away). The appeal of being able to chuck a joy con in a mate's direction at any time is lost if you then have to explain to them that you can't do certain moves that they'll be used to doing on other systems. It's an immediate downer.

I don't think that they will implement a "minor" version of controls with only one joy-con, and the japanese ad is a kind of "subliminal" message in this way: two people play against with two Switch systems. Maybe it's nothing, but i think that we can read between lines on that...

I never played a FIFA on Wii, so I don't know whether EA did anything motion-controlled or not, but hopefully the tricks can be achieved using motion: an upside-down U movement for a stepover, a circular movement for a roulette etc. If they did that, and just dropped the tactics, then playing with a single joy con could be alright... maybe...

For tactics...what about the IR camera?

I would expect them to "dumb it down" controls wise for local multiplayer, but then need both joycons for single player / online play.

If they allow the use of single joycons at all.

I imagine that in order to integrate the Joy-Cons as separate, EA will simply add a new 'Quick Play' mode where by control schemes such as tactic selection, dribbling and chipped shots/passes are removed. These would obviously remove a substantial amount of options, but I'm sure they could make it work if there was a way to fabricate these removals (e.g. a special kind of tournament where those options are not allowed).

Don't forget clickable sticks for tactics eventually

@Emperor-Palpsy No reason to get rid of chipped shots, because they just require an L button.

I could live with tricks being dropped, as I've always struggled to learn how to use them well enough to gain an advantage in doing so, but to give this game the best chance of success we want as few dropped features as possible. Dropping tricks will go down badly when/if it's announced.

but what we are saying is dropped for one mode only, rather than actually dropped.

@mav-i-am But for a game like FIFA, that mode happens to be a pretty big unique selling point of the Switch version. 'Local multiplayer, anywhere, anytime!' kinda loses it's shine if it's gimped.

The commercial that features the FIFA footage is just a proof of concept; it doesn't represent final gameplay. I believe that EA will use single Joy-Cons in a fun way, even for just passing/shooting drills and contests between friends.
