FIFA 20: Switch version set to miss out AGAIN on ALL the new features

Nintendo owners look away now... you're getting a semi-skimmed FIFA 20.


Thinking about picking up FIFA 20 on Nintendo Switch? You better think again…

EA has revealed that this year’s version of the game will look prettier, but won’t feature any of the exciting new additions – including Volta Football.

Speaking to Eurogamer, FIFA 20 executive producer Aaron McHardy said: “You’re gonna get a fresh new look in Switch, with kits and player lists and all of that. But you’re not going to be getting Volta or any of the big new features.”

It’s still not known whether gameplay changes, including tweaks to AI, will make it into the Switch version of FIFA 20.

The Switch version will be called a ‘Legacy Edition’, which runs on a custom version of the older IGNITE engine, which caters to last-gen hardware and the less-powerful Nintendo console.

We’ll likely hear more details around the Switch version, along with other FIFA 20 news, at this year’s Gamescom expo in Cologne.

The annual gaming event, taking place between August 21-24, is often the convention of choice for EA to showcase more about their flagship football title.

So, what can we expect to see?

Well, if last year is anything up go by, EA will be holding a hands-on preview with the game a couple of weeks before the expo.

Impressions and features will be embargoed until Gamescom, where the public will have their first opportunity to play the new FIFA.

Remember you can read more about the new game in our huge FIFA 20 explainer.
