Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 trailer confirms Switch version will be a lesser product

An excellent 12 months for Cristiano Ronaldo has ended with the Portugal and Real Madrid goal machine becoming the global cover star for EA Sports' Fifa 18 game. Icons will be available on all platforms, whereas Legends was exclusive to Xbox One.

The Real Madrid star capped off another superb season by scoring twice in the Champions League final against Juventus, cementing his status as the early favourite for this year's Ballon d'Or. Now running on EA's Frostbite engine - the same graphics engine that powers the Battlefield series - last year's installment was widely praised as the best-looking Federation Internationale de Football Association game yet, but it seems that the Switch will miss out on these improvements as a different version of the game will make its way to Nintendo's new console.

What else will be missing from the game when it launches on the Switch?

Ronaldo follows in the footsteps of numerous world's greatest players who have adorned the cover. The first trailer is expected to be posted on the company's YouTube channel, along with some gameplay that shows just what kind of refinements the developer has put into the Frostbite game engine.

In other words, sports fans on a Nintendo platform are once again being treated like an afterthought, which makes it essentially meaningless that, as EA says, the game is "custom built for Nintendo Switch". Retired Brazilian star Ronaldo Nazário was announced as the first Icon.
