Latest - Face of the Franchise gets several new features

We've continued to learn more about Madden 22 in the weeks since the title was revealed, including our latest look with a trailer for Face of the Franchise.

The single-player career mode has been criticized in recent years and hasn't exactly been a fan favorite, but that could change with a new Class Progression System and other upgrades this year.

We've got more details here on what players can expect from Face of the Franchise: United We Rise in Madden 22.

Details are still scarce about the event, but it's unlikely we won't get any news about the Madden franchise.

If Madden 22 manages to be the first to land on Nintendo Switch, it could be announced during EA Play Live 2021.

The official Madden 22 release date will be August 20, 2021, but players will be able to start as early as August 17 if they pre order the MVP or Dynasty Edition of the game.

There will also be an EA Play Trial once again this year, which will offer 10 hours of gameplay to subscribers before the title goes live worldwide.

However, those release dates unfortunately don't extend to Nintendo Switch...

Will Madden 22 be on Nintendo Switch?

It's a big question, as this would be the first time Madden made it onto Nintendo consoles since Madden 13, and that was long before the Nintendo Switch.

OFF BALANCE: Madden may remain missing from Nintendo for another year

Unfortunately Madden 22 has not yet been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch.

However, there are signs from other games on Switch that Madden 22 could be the game to break that absentee streak for Madden on Nintendo consoles, even with a launch after the initial release of the title.

EA and Sports on Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch has not been a console devoid of sports titles, and they've recently included the NBA 2K series and RBI Baseball 21.

However, other titles like MLB The Show 21 have yet to make the jump despite speculation fueled by both Sony San Diego and Nintendo.

EA Sports has made the leap to Switch with other franchises, most notably with FIFA 21, but other EA titles like Apex Legends and Knockout City have kept a Switch presence.

Madden 22 Switch Price, Legacy Edition?

Should the decision be made to bring Madden 22 to Nintendo Switch, it's not completely clear how much it'll cost players.

THE LEGACY: Madden could also adopt this Legacy Edition concept

FIFA 21 landed with a Legacy Edition on Nintendo Switch at a slightly reduced price compared to other platforms, selling for just $49.99.

Madden 22 on Nintendo Switch would likely go for that price or the current gen standard of $59.99, but it's not clear if this would be a full game launching the same time as other platforms or another Legacy Edition.
