This is what FIFA willl look like on the Nintendo Switch

The announcement of the Nintendo Switch has got gaming fans across the world pretty excited.

The new console is the latest edition from the Japanese tech giant, but there was only one question for most football fans: what would FIFA look like on the Nintendo Switch?

Well, here’s your first look. This 30-second clip gives a broader look as to what the console has to offer, and how FIFA looks on it.

Some people have been claiming it’s a first look of the new FIFA 18, but on closer inspection it’s more likely it’s still the old FIFA 17 shown in the advert.

The short clip clearly shows two players kicking off at the start of the game – a rule that was scrapped before the start of the current football season but came after FIFA had time to change it for the FIFA 17 edition.


It would be weird for EA Sports to still include the old football law of having two players kick off, when it’s a tactic no longer employed by the majority of teams.

In addition to this, the short gameplay that is shown looks awfully like FIFA 17, with graphics and the players’ profiles looking fairly similar.
