@javman05 : Just as I suspected. Perhaps such integration is more complicated than we may realise (or to be cynical, perhaps EA are just lazy). Considering the fact that the Switch version is getting a Champions Edition SKU this year indicates that the Switch version of 18 has been very successful (I don't think any other Nintendo version of FIFA in history has gotten a special/premium edition).

I just wish that we had the option for 6-8 player couch multiplayer. I can imagine it being just a bit chaotic, but there is really no technical reason why they couldn't pull it off.

I have never used the companion apps, so I do not know what we may be missing out on (if anything), but wouldn't such an app be rendered redundant by the fact that the Switch is already portable? Am I missing something here?

Yeah I'd like that too, perhaps even in a special simplified arcade version. I remember Wii had a version like that; was pretty much fun.

@Silly_G you get free daily packs plus you can complete challenges and make transfers on the fly. Thought we were getting an almost like for like edition this year, seems like another limited edition again

Has anyone seen any more reviews/ gameplay announcements for the switch version. I really want this to be worth getting but I can't help feel the lack of info is because it's half the game of ps4 or xbox...

Waiting with anticipation here, I take it it a the champions edition that's available early..

@Fowlersrs early impressions, I've just started FUT, there's definitely a lack of players on switch as there's not a huge amount of players for sale. It certainly looks better and plays better than last year's. Yes I picked up the championship edition.

@javman05

How is the presentation? Much improved? They were making quite a big deal of the changes they’d made to make (for example) PL matches feel more like PL matches with the broadcast packages etc

Is video capture enabled? Can you post a couple of videos?

Could be just the start of season and players arnt listed for sale?

Are all the kick off modes present? Like the survival mode?

They mentioned exclusive features for switch, any signs what they might be?

@Fowlersrs haven't seen survival mode I'm afraid. Had a quick go on a premiership campaign and presentation is excellent. Not sure what exclusive content there is for switch, haven't found any yet

I've played a little bit of it. So far so good. The visuals are improved, and there are some subtle new features (such as the ability to add player names for local multiplayer sessions which will save progress and other preferences). Video capture is also available straight off the bat (video capture was added to FIFA 18 in one of the most recent updates).

Gameplay has been tweaked, and I've hardly even played very much of 18. I have found passing to be a bit more difficult, but perhaps I was playing with a dud team (with poor formation).

Whether it is worth grabbing for those who already own 18 is quite subjective as that would depend on your mileage with these sorts of games. Nevertheless, it is a solid football experience and a more refined package when compared with its predecessor.

Of course, you should be able to find more thorough reviews elsewhere.

If youve paid £28 for it id say thats a bit less of a blow. Where did you pick it up from for that?
