EA adding David Bekham to all versions of FIFA 21...except for Switch

Bending the rules

Switch owners are already well aware that they got the shaft when it comes to FIFA 21, but today's news just makes it even more apparent. EA has announced that they're adding David Bekham to FIFA 21, definitely one of the biggest names to ever play the sport. All versions of the game will get Bekham...minus Switch. Why is Switch being left behind? Absolutely no explanation was given, which makes it all the more worse.

Thanks to Rockyeahh for the heads up!

Switch version of Apex Legends delayed until 2021

"We don’t want to rush anything out."

The Nintendo Switch version of Apex Legends has officially been delayed until 2021. Check out the full announcement below from Game Director, Chad Grenier.

Earlier this year at EA Play, I announced our plans to bring Apex Legends to new platforms including Steam and the Nintendo Switch. Today I want to provide two quick updates on that, as I know players have been asking about both.

First, for PC players, Apex Legends is officially coming to Steam when Season 7 launches on November 4, 2020. If you play on Steam and you’re new to Apex Legends, we can’t wait to welcome you aboard. And if you’ve previously been playing on Origin, feel free to give it a spin on Steam—all your account progression and unlocks will carry over between the two platforms.

Second, for those who game on the Nintendo Switch,we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time. This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out.

Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year. And of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.

We can’t wait to get Apex Legends into your hands (or your TV-connected dock) on Switch.

See you soon, and thanks for understanding.

Check out direct-feed footage of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered on Switch

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered doesn't hit the Switch until next month, but we already got a look at some off-screen footage, thanks to the game going live on the Mexican eShop early. Now we have more gameplay from the Switch version, but this time it's direct-feed.

Apex Legends' Switch version rated by the ESRB

Release info coming?

Apex Legends was announced for Switch a few months back, and ever since, fans have been waiting to find out when the game is launching. While we still don't have a release date, it does seem like we're inching ever closer to launch.

The ESRB has just updated with a listing for the Switch version of Apex Legends, which is obviously the same as other versions. With the rating locked in, we should be getting release date info in the very near future. Let's hope EA manages to squeak this version out before the year ends.

Physical sales for FIFA 21 in UK see Switch version account for just 2% of the total

It's almost like Switch fans are tired of being treated poorly

Launch week sales for FIFA 21 have come in for the UK, and not surprisingly, the game took the #1 spot on the charts. It's the biggest game of the year so far in the UK, beating out Animal Crossing: New Horizons and The Last of Us: Part 2. That said, Switch owners aren't exactly eager to snatch the game up.

Physical sales for the game dropped sharply on all platforms, as it seems people are opting for the digital version. On the Switch side of things, physical sales of the game in its first week account for just 2% of total sales. The Xbox One version accounts for 36%, while the PS4 version brought in 62%.
