Electronic Arts has announced that a “custom built” FIFA experience is in development for Nintendo Switch.
The publisher promises that it will be “the most immersive, social, and authentic sports game ever created for Nintendo players,” with more specifics to be revealed in the coming months.
“It’s a huge honour and privilege to be here today representing the passionate and talented team at Electronic Arts,” Electronic Arts executive vice president Patrick Söderlund shared at the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017.
“For me, to be on this stage is like a dream come true. For as long as I’ve played games, I’ve been a massive fan of the Nintendo platforms and amazing culture of creativity…so much so that when my first son was born, my wife and I gave him the middle name Luigi!
“So today, we’re extremely excited to announce that the world’s most popular sports game will be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.
“EA Sports FIFA on Nintendo Switch will be the most immersive, social, and authentic sports game ever created for Nintendo players. It will deliver the FIFA experience custom built for Nintendo Switch… so you can play anywhere, play with anyone, and play how you want to play.
“If you’re at the park, at your friend’s house, or on vacation, you can always stay connected to the biggest matches. You’ll be able to get on the pitch with your favourite players and teams from the world’s best leagues in iconic stadiums from around the world… all with the unmatched authenticity and depth that FIFA is known for.
“We’ll have much more to say and show in the coming months as we bring the world’s game to Nintendo Switch in 2017.”
EA Sports FIFA will release on Nintendo Switch in 2017.
