FIFA will hit Nintendo Switch after years of passing up Wii U

EA Sports hits the Switch

EA FIFA Nintendo Switch

FIFA 13 was the last game in EA’s massively popular soccer series to appear on a Nintendo console. That will change this year as Electronic Arts brings FIFA to the Nintendo Switch.

The appearance of FIFA on Nintendo Switch is bigger than just one game. Nintendo struggled to get third-party developers like Electronic Arts, Activision, and Ubisoft to reliably port their biggest franchises to the Nintendo Wii and Wii U. FIFA on Switch shows that Electronic Arts is at least open to giving the new Nintendo hardware a chance.

EA did not provide a release date for FIFA.
