It’s been nine years since the last release of Madden NFL on Nintendo Switch. Things still look pretty difficult for the MADDEN NFL 21 Switch release but there are still some hopes around it. Here is everything you need to know.
Madden NFL which was formerly known as John Madden Football until 1993, is a high-performance American football video game series. It is developed by the EA Tiburon for EA Sports. This game is named after former American coach, John Madden who was incubated in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Notably, Madden NFL is the only officially licensed National Football League video game series. This game has influenced several players and coaches of the physical sport. It showcases various features like player statistics, detailed playbooks, and real television-style voice commentary.
The founder of Electronic Arts, Trip Hawkins formulated the series and approached John Madeen back in 1984 for his expertise and endorsement. The game was able to be made as realistic as possible due to Madden’s input. However, the first version of this game which was known as John Madden Football did not appear untill1988. Several annual versions have been released by EA since 1990. After EA acquired the rights to use NFL teams and players, they changed the to Madeen NFL in 1993. After retiring from broadcasting in 2009, Madeen continued to lend his name and his valuable expertise for the game franchise.
MADDEN NFL 21 Nintendo Switch Release date
Nothing yet has been announced by EA regarding the release of Madden 21 on Nintendo Switch. EA usually releases all of their versions for each console at the same time. The release pattern is similar when it comes to their sports titles, except for their Next-gen versions. But a release on Nintendo Switch is highly doubtful this year. But listing to the upcoming plans of releasing Nintendo Switch Pro, there will be a high chance of Madden 22 if not 21, releasing on this gaming console.
Why is Madden NFL 21 not releasing on Nintendo Switch?
The major reason behind this hesitation by EA is that Madden’s release on Switch might not be worth it for them in the longer run. FIFA is a worldwide big seller but Madden is mostly a big seller in the United States only. To make a special version of the game for a less powerful platform like Switch might no be suitable for them. But we hope after the Nintendo Switch Pro release, things might start changing for the Switch fans.
