GameSpot Video - FIFA 19 Switch - Juventus vs. FC Barcelona

Nintendo Switch continues to offer huge third party games as FIFA 19 joins the lineup allowing you to take the pitch with your favorite teams either at home or on the go. We play a full match with Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus, against Lionel Messi's Barcelona.

Famitsu - review scores

One lone review score this week, and I'm thinking this score is applied to ALL versions of the game, rather than the Switch version specifically.

FIFA 19's Ultimate Team mode on Switch lacks multiple features

I'm sad to say that this really shouldn't be surprising, as it's been a trend with EA for years and years now. The thing is, it's still disappointing every single time.

Our friends at Nintendo Life have gone through FIFA 19 on Switch, and they've noted that a handful of Ultimate Team features from other versions aren't included here. The missing aspects include:

- Division Rivals mode is not included
- weekly FUT champions event and Squad Battles are not included
- daily and weekly challenges are not included

It's pretty safe to say that these features won't be implemented in a future update, so Switch owners will just have to do without.

28th September 2018 – Today, Electronic Arts launched EA SPORTS™ FIFA 19 across PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans can achieve glory with the UEFA Champions League across a variety of modes including the new Kick Off, which also features ‘House Rules’ and deeper stat tracking to heighten the competition among friends.

Additionally, the final chapter of the critically acclaimed story mode, The Journey: Champions, culminates with three playable storylines, each with their own distinct journey through an interconnected football story.
