Nintendo accidentally advertised a FIFA 19 in-game event that isn’t actually in the Switch version

A bit of an unusual mishap occured with FIFA 19 on Nintendo Switch. As with FIFA 18, the game doesn’t have complete feature parity with other versions of the game and is missing some modes and options. FIFA 19 on Switch is also not getting some limited time events, such as the current “FUTMAS” event centered around the game’s popular Ultimate Team mode. However, it seems even Nintendo is getting confused on which content is in the Switch version, as they actually advertised the FUTMAS event on Twitter and on the Switch’s own news channel. An EA community manager on the game’s official forum responded to the issue, acknowledging that the advertising message on the Switch news channel wasn’t intended to be published, and that EA was working on getting it removed. Nintendo of America’s tweet is still up, however.
