FIFA 20 will be coming to Switch next month, but when it does, it’ll be released as a Legacy Edition. That means rather than more of a new experience that makes significant improvements and additions, it’ll be largely based on last year’s version.

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.
