Anyone looking into grabbing FIFA 21 for their Nintendo Switch might want to reconsider. During EA Play 2020, the company announced the game is heading to the Switch, but at a cost.
Unfortunetaly, FIFA 21 will launch as a Legacy Edition on the Switch. EA has confirmed this version of the game will feature kit and squad updates, but doesn’t include “new game modes or gameplay innovations.” That includes the Volta mode that was introduced in FIFA 20, or any changes prior to FIFA 18. There’s also no Story mode.
Updated menu and broadcast overlays will also be included, but that is it.
EA launched Burnout Paradise Remastered for Switch yesterday, and the company has plans for releasing several games for the Nintendo Switch. That includes Apex Legends, complete with cross-play.
The game’s price hasn’t been given yet, but previous editions have been overprice and EA is known for gouging their players’ wallets.
FIFA 21 Legacy Edition releases for Switch on October 9th, 2020.
