Once again, this year’s FIFA release for Switch will be a ‘Legacy Edition’, meaning it has the same gameplay features and modes from FIFA 22.

It will feature cross-play for every 1v1 mode in the game, an updated animation system, a “new risk versus reward shooting mechanic” and a revamp of the way free kicks, penalties and corners are taken, among other features.
FIFA Ultimate Team mode will feature a redesigned chemistry system and a new mode called FUT Moments, which EA said is “scenario-based”.
FIFA 23 Legacy Edition, which will be released on the same date for Switch, won’t include these new features or enhancements.
It will include updated kits, clubs and squads from some of the world’s top leagues, plus the addition of top women’s club teams and some new stadiums.
