We've known for a few days that FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch won't use the Frostbite engine or include the Alex Hunter story mode, but now a new official page shows us what the game will include. The big pitch is that it'll be the leading 'portable' version of the game, and it will include FIFA Ultimate Team.
Below are some screens and excerpts from the page.
With a variety of controller and display configurations available, as well as split Joy-Con support, FIFA 18 built for Switch offers a responsive and exciting experience – no matter how you play.
With advanced rendering technology, FIFA 18 on Switch delivers the most technologically-advanced portable FIFA experience ever. Brand-new pitch environments, realistic character likeness, and new gameplay mechanics, all built for Switch.
With FIFA Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Switch Kick Off, and Local Seasons, FIFA 18 built for Switch offers fans more depth in modes than any other portable console.
The best of the best are coming to FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch. Play with the most iconic legends of football including Ronaldo Nazário.
It's not clear what 'Switch Kick Off' is, but evidently the game will focus on portable and local multiplayer options alongside the ever-popular FUT.
Quite how well this version will play is anyone's guess, and of course it's missing some of the technology from the PS4 / Xbox One entries. Nevertheless, it'll be interesting to see how this iteration 'built for Nintendo Switch' will stack up.
