Fans can only wait for an official showcase of "FIFA 18" for Switch from EA to know it compares to its predecessors. One of the third-party games in store for the Nintendo Switch is the blockbuster soccer series Federation Internationale de Football Association.
Both of them hope that they will get to see people buying the Switch and then enjoying it for a long period of time, in the same way people used to enjoy Nintendo's earlier home consoles such as the Famicom. "I think the Wii was significantly underpowered relative to the PS3 and Xbox 360 without gamers being too bothered by it. Nintendo finds other ways to offer an entertaining experience and I for one really appreciate their willingness to innovate".
This likely means that Nintendo won't make the next Metroid game on Unreal, but instead it has the technical know-how to aid third-party studios that need help getting certain tricks to work in the graphics engine.
Aside from launch titles such as "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", the Switch has games slated for release courtesy of at least 70 third-party developers such as Bethesda Softworks and 2K Games.
"We're gonna be at Xbox One at launch, Microsoft has a three month console exclusive". The franchise is including another title in its long line of games, called Federation Internationale de Football Association 18.
The streamlined development department has more third-party benefits, too, as Miyamoto went on to explain. He said third-party developers who are building games for PC can now "easily adapt" them for the Nintendo Switch.
It's probably less important to worry about what engine the game is running and focus more on things like Ultimate Team being included as well.
Nintendo Switch releases March 3.
