Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Why is FIFA the sports game that EA puts on the Switch?

I'm curious on a more logical level: FIFA is most popular in Europe where Nintendo is weakest and it doesn't sell particularly well in Japan or as well in NA. 

Is FIFA just easier to place around due to team size?



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Soccer is popular everywhere while football & basketball are pretty USA dominant.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Maybe because of FIFAs popularity in Europe Nintendo made the request to help sales.



Despite what you are saying FIFA will still be more profitable than Madden or NHL would be



Nothing to see here, move along

Because FIFA (probably) sells more than every other sports game put together.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Yep, that's it. Including Ultimate team Fifa is bringing in about 50% of EAs income alone



Because football is the best sport.

I think the point is that they are trying to get more European fans by having FIFA.



Because football is the most popular sport in the world (no matter how boring it is to watch (I’ll give it that it’s pretty fun to play with a group of friends on a day off))
