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.

FIFA 19 will be released on Nintendo Switch in about a month, on September 28. Something you won’t be able to do at that point yet is celebrate the goals you score in the game with Fortnite-inspired celebrations.

Fortnite, being as popular as it is, is played by tons of people – including professional football players, so once in a while you see a player bust out one of the emotes from Fortnite to celebrate a goal. In a kind of weird real life & game back-and-forth crossover, some of these Fortnite celebrations might now in turn be added to FIFA 19. At gamescom, Eurogamer asked FIFA Creative Director Matt Prior about the possibility of Fortnite emotes in FIFA and got the following answer:

“We pride ourselves on authenticity so if it’s something you see in the real world, if a player – Griezmann, Dele Alli, those guys generally tend to do that – if it’s something they do, then it’s something we would potentially look to emulate. At the end of the day, if you watch a game and you see something in the real world game, we want that reflected in our own title. So there is potential.”

Of course, Epic Games would also need to give the okay for this. Asked about any potential copyright issues, Prior said that they would “cross that bridge when [they] came to it”. Seems like we won’t get Fortnite celebrations in FIFA soon, but it is something EA is considering.


At Gamescom 2018 this week, FIFA 19 is playable on Switch. Have a look at some off-screen footage below.

FIFA 18 was the first time that the soccer franchise had appeared on a Nintendo console in several years. Though the core of the game was good, there were obvious areas for improvement.

Lead gameplay producer Samuel Rivera spoke with GameReactor about some of the improvements planned for FIFA 19 this year. In addition to better AI, the game will have a Timed Finishing Mechanic.

We have another look at FIFA 19 running on Switch with the video below. It’s a few more minutes of gameplay showing it off in handheld mode.
