The Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 23, or the Legacy Edition as it is known, is quite a bit behind the current versions of FIFA 23. It has stripped back mechanics, doesn’t include HyperMotion2.

This year’s FIFA is a bit different though, because we have the first ever World Cup set during November/December. In order to celebrate this, a new World Cup update has been added to FIFA 23, with a full tournament, national team rosters and more.

Is the FIFA 23 World Cup on Nintendo Switch?
