We finally have a release date for Fe, the newest game from Stick it to the Man and Flipping Death developer Zoink. As announced during the Nintendo Direct Mini in January, it will appear on the eShop beginning February 16.
Regarding pricing, Fe will set you back $19.99. Both GameStop and Nintendo’s own website have it down for that much, and other sources also confirm the same amount.
EA and Zoink have put out a fact sheet for Fe, sharing the latest information about the game. You can read it in full below.
Fe currently digital-only

Although it was pretty much expected, Fe will be digital-only when it’s ready, according to developer Zoink Games. Some had been hoping for a physical release, but there are no current plans for that as of now.
Zoink has left the door open to the possibility in the future. At launch though, expect Fe to be available only on the eShop.
For now it's digital! We'll see what happens later on 🙂

Could Burnout Paradise be making its way to Switch? A supposed classification from Brazil could provide at least some hope that it could be happening.
The Enemy claims that the listing below is legitimate, though it is no longer in the database. Either it was removed because the information was shared when it shouldn’t have been, or it didn’t exist in the first place.

Rumor: Internal EA emails mention January Nintendo Direct, February 2018 release for Fe

Reddit user OldSoul2 shared something rather interesting today. Over the past three months, he claims to have been receiving internal company emails from EA about two upcoming titles. One of these if Fe, which is slated for Switch.
Some of the information OldSoul2 has received in emails, which look admittedly convincing, is especially noteworthy. The Fe section mentions a Nintendo Direct for January, which will tie in with a Switch trailer and previews. Also, Fe is apparently planned for a February 2018 launch.
EA not ready to fully commit to Switch just yet, trying “to fully understand what the demand is”
Posted on 4 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 141 Comments | 0 Likes
EA released FIFA 18 on Switch a few weeks ago. However, the publisher isn’t in a rush to prepare additional games for the system.
The Wall Street Journal, having spoken with finance chief Blake Jorgensen, says EA is waiting until Switch has been out on the market for a full year before deciding whether to bring over more games. Jorgensen told the publication that it’s too early to tell whether FIFA 18 has been successful on Switch. EA wants “to fully understand what the demand is” for the system before it commits additional resources.
We do know that EA will be publishing Fe on Switch early next year. That was partially due to developer Zoink pushing to have its game on Nintendo’s console.
Star Wars Battlefront II dev says Switch release isn’t currently planned, could be explored “if we see opportunities there”
Posted on 5 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 49 Comments | 0 Likes
GameSpot recently spoke with Motive Studios producer David Robillard about Star Wars Battlefront II. The site managed to get in a question about a potential Switch version.
Robillard said that a Switch release could be explored “if we see opportunities there”. However, he quickly added that “it is not something that’s on the books right now.”
It’s worth noting that Star Wars Battlefront II runs on Frostbite. For FIFA 18 on Switch, rather than using the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions as a base which also use Frostbite, EA created a custom engine. It would be interesting to see how Star Wars Battlefront II or any other titles from the publisher would be handled in the future if they’re developed with that engine.
