Earlier this year, EA revealed Switch owners would receive a watered-down legacy version of FIFA 20 instead of the full experience. Nintendo fans will miss out on some "big new features" and modes, according to the executive producer Aaron McHardy:
You're gonna get a fresh new look in Switch, with kits and player lists and all of that, but you're not going to be getting Volta or any of the big new features.
To ensure Switch owners know exactly what they're getting themselves into, EA has now released a detailed FAQ explaining the finer details of the FIFA 20 Legacy Edition. This version of the game will include the Champions League, Europa League, Ultimate Team (FUT), Kick Off, Career Mode, licensed and custom tournaments, the Women's International Cup, skill games, online seasons, online friendlies and local seasons.
As for what it won't include? As noted above by the executive producer, you can't try out the new Volta football mode. The gameplay in the Legacy Edition is also the same as FIFA 19, without "any new development" or "significant" enhancements. The Legacy Edition will be released next month on 27th September. EA also provided some information about the pricing of the Switch iteration:
Pricing varies by country, however, Legacy Editions are generally sold at a lower price.
