Publisher EA has confirmed that the FIFA game coming to the Nintendo Switch this year will be a version of FIFA 18.
Chief operating officer Peter Moore told Gamereactor, “We are custom-building a FIFA version for the Nintendo Switch. It will be FIFA 18, and it will obviously be later this year when FIFA 18 comes out.”
Clarifying his comments, he added: “What you have will be a custom built version for the Nintendo Switch from the FIFA development team in Vancouver.”
The title is perhaps not surprising, but it’s notable because it’s the first time EA has called the Switch game by that name. From the announcement last month until this point, the company had been referring to it as “EA Sports FIFA on Nintendo Switch”.
