Nintendo of Japan has released a new Nintendo Switch trailer. The 30-second video shows off the console’s unique hybrid system and contains a segment featuring what looks like EA’s FIFA 18.
EA’s Patrick Söderlund announced the title during Nintendo’s 12th January Switch presentation.
“EA Sports’ FIFA on Nintendo Switch will be the most immersive, social, and authentic sports game ever created for Nintendo players,” Söderlund said at the time.
“It will deliver the FIFA experience custom-built for Nintendo Switch so you can play anywhere, play with anyone, and play how you want to play.”
In the video (via Eurogamer), two people are playing the new FIFA in the Switch’s portable mode, on a coffee table. It’s not a lot to go on, but this is apparently the first time we’ve seen any footage of FIFA 18 on Switch.

- “Evidence does suggest Frostbite isn’t making the cut for the Switch version of FIFA – but that’s not to say it looks a world apart from PS4 and Xbox One.
- “Frostbite’s main visual improvements over the last FIFA 16 engine (Ignite) were added volumetric lighting, and upgraded post-effects like motion blur. That being said, the core gameplay, stadia, and player models were essentially identical between these engines.
- “This is what we’re seeing in the Switch footage; no sign of the improved lighting so far, but the stadia and players are still close to what we have on PS4 and Xbox One.”
