FM 20 Touch: New features bring portable version closer to full game

That's where FM 20 Touch comes in. It is a streamlined version perfect for an iPad and a Nintendo Switch.

With a release date of 19 November, FM 20 Touch will hit the shelves at the same time as the full version, but many fans wonder what features will be in this slightly toned-down version of the game.
