FIFA 20 Switch owners may not get a kick out of the purported Legacy Edition differences. While PC, Xbox One, and PS4 owners will be getting the full package come September 27, 2019, the Switch is getting a “FIFA 20 Legacy Edition” which, essentially, is code for not being as good as its platform peers. So, what are the FIFA 20 Switch differences and how does the Legacy Edition compare to the normal FIFA 20? While the details haven’t been fully revealed, we now have a better idea of what’s not coming to the Switch and what might still make its way over come the Fall.
FIFA 20 Switch differences
According to a recent interview with executive producer Aaron McHardy over at Eurogamer, there’s going to be one massive omission from this year’s annual soccer showcase on Nintendo Switch: The brand-new Volta mode.
That’s right, the FIFA Street-esque offering won’t be included in the FIFA 20 Legacy Edition on Switch. According to McHardy, “You’re not going to be getting Volta or any of the big new features.”
What those “new features” entail is anyone’s guess, but the recent EA Play livestream event at E3 2019 made explicit reference to a change in one-on-one attacking and defending, and improved defensive AI.
However, it’s not all bad news. McHardy confirms that “[updated] kits and player lists and all of that” will still be hanging around. That’s a relief.
What’s in the FIFA 20 Legacy Edition?
Again, while nothing has been officially confirmed, we now have a better idea of what’s coming as part of the FIFA 20 Legacy Edition.
The likes of Career Mode, Skill Games, Kick Off, and Ultimate Team (minus Division Rivals and big content updates) should remain untouched, while you’ll also get updated rosters, team kits, and potentially likenesses too. Outside of that, there just appears to be a vanilla FIFA gameplay experience, so don’t expect any big gameplay features from the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions making their way over to the Switch anytime soon.
