Football Manager Touch launches on Switch today

Football Manager will make its debut on Nintendo Switch today, publisher Sega has confirmed.

Earlier this week, game developer Flyhigh Works gave fans insight on Kamiko's success on Nintendo Switch and briefly hinted at its popular Fairune series heading to the hybrid system in the near future - and now it looks like we have a few more details about the latter of the two.

Those who already own and pre-ordered Football Manager 2018 may want to hold off, however, as all Steam pre-orders came with a free copy of Football Manager Touch 2018 back in October.

FM Touch has been fully optimised for the Switch with a bespoke user interface and a customised control system that takes full advantage of the system's various controller input options, including support for both the touchscreen and Joy-Con™ controllers.

Sports Interactive's studio director Miles Jacobson said: 'This is a milestone release for Football Manager.

This isn't the first time achievements are made available on non-Microsoft platforms, since iOS and Android titles have already obtained their fair share of them on games such as Age of Empires: Castle Siege, but sure enough this is the first time they drop on a rival gaming console.
