FIFA 19 on Nintendo Switch looks significantly better than last year’s game.
Footage showing the game played in handheld mode, reveals smoother animation and more detailed character models.
But it’s not just graphics that have been overhauled this year.
EA has finally added the ability to play online with friends as you can in other console versions – a feature lacking from last year’s game.
Not only that, but general gameplay looks to be more fluid, too – despite the fact the game isn’t using the Frostbite engine.
Instead, it’s powered by a custom engine based on the Ignite code.
However, speaking to Dream Team last month, EA’s Andrei Lazarescu revealed he was not ‘closing the door’ on using Frostbite technology in the future.
“I’m not closing the door on that possibility,” he said. “However we didn’t want to create a dumbed-down version of the frostbite engine.”
he added: “The intent was never to have a one-off custom engine that were never going to touch again,”Lazarescu explained.
“It was to have that as a baseline and then build from there.”
