EA's FIFA on the Nintendo Switch will Debut at E3 2017

The new FIFA on the Nintendo Switch will be playable at the E3 2017.

EA announced the line-up of games to be available at over 140 on-hand gaming stations at the E3 2017. One of the new games on the list is FIFA on the Nintendo Switch. Also on the list is FIFA 18. The distinction of FIFA 18 and FIFA has fans of the franchise very worried.

The fear is that EA is not going to offer a full fledged and up to date FIFA game for the Nintendo Switch as the company does for the Xbox and PS4. FIFA is available for mobile devices, not offering the full experience as on Sony's and Microsoft's consoles.

EA is a huge publisher with net revenue of $4.8 billion in 2017. The Switch sales are bigger than anticipated. It will take time for especially large publishers to catch up and support the Switch as they do for the other main consoles on the market.

This summer will bring new big Switch games without a break. Arms will be released on June 16 and Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers pre-order discounts on both of the titles for Prime members to the tune of 20%. More Nintendo Switch games are expected to be announced at the E3 2017 next month.

The supply constraints of the Nintendo Switch have eased up a bit in past days. The new GameStop Nintendo Switch bundle is selling for under $400 are a good indicator for the softened demand. The bundles contain a physical blockbuster game and accessories.

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch, but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. The only number the company made official is the production volume over the next 12 months. The Nintendo Switch launched on March 3 and Nintendo sold over 2.74 million units as of the end of April.

10 million Switch consoles are planned to enter retail channels until end of April 2018. The demand for the Nintendo Switch will spike during the Holiday Shopping season 2017. Nintendo will set aside a large part of the Switch production during the next months for November and December. This stock piling will keep the Nintendo Switch in short supply during the next 5 months.

As Nintendo coordinated new Switch console shipment with the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, we expect the company to do the same for the next major Switch game launches.

There are also several new accessories coming on the market from Nintendo in the next weeks. See the full list of new Nintendo Switch accessories.
