Kick off

Electronic Arts is bringing its popular FIFA franchise to the Nintendo Switch this year.

The news was revealed during the Nintendo Switch Presentation, and while no footage was shown, the strength of the concept is clear. You'll be able to challenge friends in local co-op matches or play online with millions of players around the world, making it one of the most connected and "social" sports titles ever made.

EA intends to bring FIFA to the Switch in 2017. Are you excited? Let us know with a comment.
