Just like over the past couple of years, EA will have a FIFA game ready to go on Switch later in 2019. However, it will be a “Legacy Edition” – meaning it won’t include the new FIFA Street-style mode Volta Football from other platforms, nor will it contain a number of other big features.

In an interview with Eurogamer, FIFA 20 executive producer Aaron McHardy discussed what fans can expect from the Legacy Edition on Switch. He said:

EA officially announced FIFA 20 today, the latest entry in its long-running sports franchise. The game will indeed be coming to Switch, but with a bit of a caveat.

According to EA’s website, Switch will be getting a “Legacy Edition” of FIFA 20. What this means exactly is unclear. One possible guess is that this will be a much more modest version of FIFA 20 compared to the main game on other platforms. Rather than packing in all of the new features functionality from the primary version, the Switch release might be closer to a roster update. In any case, we’ll need EA to clarify the details.

FIFA 20 Legacy Edition launches for Switch on September 27.

Update (5/26): FIFA 2020 has also been listed by Amazon UK, and is even up for pre-order here.


Original (5/22): EA will be bringing FIFA 20 to Switch, according to a listing on Amazon. An official announcement should be made within the next couple of weeks.

After taking several years off on Nintendo systems, FIFA finally returned with FIFA 18 for Switch. This will be the third year in a row that the series will be appearing on the console. FIFA 19 made a number of improvements over the previous version, so here’s hoping that the trend continues with this year’s iteration.

EA and Respawn launched their free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends at the start of February. Right after that, we heard that the team was interested in having the game on Switch, but there was nothing they could take about at the time.

Respawn project lead Drew McCoy has now addressed the Switch discussion once again. As part of a new Wired feature, McCoy acknowledged all of the requests about wanting to play the game on Nintendo’s console. However, no promises can be made and the team doesn’t have anything to announce at this time.

Rumors emerged a few years ago that Criterion was asked to make a new F-Zero game on Wii U for Nintendo. Alex Ward, the studio’s founder who left back in 2014 for his own company Three Fields Entertainment, indicated soon after that the talks weren’t serious. During last week’s episode of the Game Informer Show, he clarified the situation once and for all.

When asked about those original rumors regarding Criterion and F-Zero, Ward stated:

Electronic Arts has announced that EA Partners will publish Velan’s first original IP for Switch. The project will feature “a unique game world” and “pioneer an entirely new and entertaining way to experience team-based action.” Velan Studios intends to add 40 jobs, doubling its current development team by the end of the year.

Velan Studios was founded in 2016 by Guha and Karthik Bala, industry veterans who started Vicarious Visions. The company has attracted world class talent whose credits include Guitar Hero, Skylanders, Rock Band, Super Mario Maker, Metroid Prime, Destiny, and Uncharted, among others.

Following its reveal in the last Nintendo Direct, Unravel Two launched on Switch just a couple of days ago. See how it compares to the Xbox One version below.

Unravel Two is out now for Switch. To celebrate the game’s release, a new launch trailer is available which you can find below.

New footage has emerged for the Switch version of Unravel Two. Get a look at the gameplay in the video below.

Update (3/14): Coldwood has now followed up and has said that there will not be a physical version in North America (thanks JPSWITCHMANIA). If you’re interested in a copy, you’ll need to place an order with a retailer such as Amazon UK – which ships to the states despite what the page says.


Original (3/13): After it was announced in the latest Nintendo Direct, pre-orders for Unravel Two opened in Europe. We quickly found out that the game would be available physically in PAL regions. But what about North America?

Thankfully, Unravel Two will be receiving the same treatment stateside. Developer Coldwood Interactive has confirmed that there are plans to offer the title physically in North America. Since Unravel Two launches on March 22 though, there isn’t much time for retailers to get everything in order in time for launch.
