FIFA 18 was initially revealed for the Switch back at the slightly awkward event in January, and very minimal news was available from that moment. We heard bits and rumors that the game would run poorly and would highly resemble the old generation ports, but info was just released to help clear that up.
“FIFA 18 BUILT FOR NINTENDO SWITCH” with this being their tagline, we were skeptical to what that were referring to. Would we get a full-fledged port, or would we be given a lazy port missing the most important features? On their teaser site, they do indicate the ways to play and what will be apart of the package.
With advanced rendering technology, FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch delivers an unparalleled experience. The product boasts a full 1080p on TV and 720p on handheld, delivering authentic football atmospheres, no matter where you play. Experience brand-new pitch environments, unique physically based rendering for all characters, and new gameplay mechanics.
With FIFA Ultimate Team™, Career Mode, and Switch-tailored Kick Off, and Local Seasons, FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch is the deepest portable FIFA ever.
So yes, that answers some of the biggest questions revolving around the product, and EA has delivered the answers. 1080p on T.V and 720p on the handheld is exactly what was expected and having all the modes of play anywhere at anytime is a bonus in my book. Split Joy-Con play is also a feature, utilizing the Switch’s key asset to provide a better multiplayer experience away from home.
FIFA 18 releases worldwide on September 29th 2017.
