In India, the price of the FIFA 22 game for the Nintendo Switch has been reduced. FIFA 22 on the Nintendo Switch was originally announced to cost Rs. 3,999, but distributor E-xpress has informed retailers that the final price will be Rs. 2,499. Expect to see updated pricing on sites such as Mcube Games, Amazon, and Flipkart, among other places.
Considering that FIFA 22 on the Nintendo Switch was announced to have a $40 price internationally (approximately Rs. 2,800), the Rs. 3,999 price in India was, to put it mildly, mercenary at best. This is especially true now that EA has confirmed that the FIFA 22 game for the Nintendo Switch is the legacy edition of the game.
Therefore, if you are expecting FIFA 22 Coins on the Nintendo Switch to include any of the features or visual enhancements found in other versions of the game, you should reconsider your expectations. It will most likely be similar to previous FIFA releases such as FIFA 18, 19, 20, and 21, with the exception of updated rosters. However, according to sources in the supply chain, the game continues to be a consistent seller on the Nintendo Switch platform.
According to sales data from Nintendo Switch in India, the console outsold the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Xbox One S in 2020, and it is expected to reach nearly 100,000 units sold by March 2021. It was estimated a year ago that the Nintendo Switch had sold between 55,000 and 60,000 units in the United States during its entire country's history. A near 100 percent increase in a year, especially one that was fraught with the difficulties it experienced, is incredible, to say the least. In addition, an OLED model will be available in October at a price that is reportedly reasonable for India, despite the fact that Nintendo does not have an official presence there in FIFA 22 Coins.
EA continues to be one of India's most prominent and largest publishers, thanks to the success of the FIFA and Need for Speed franchises, which continue to dominate console game sales in the country. It's one of the few titles that is available for pre-order in India on the same day and at the same time as it is in the rest of the world.
In fact, most stores have told IGN India that sales of FIFA Ultimate Team Points – the game's in-game currency – are one of their top three revenue generators in terms of digital purchases, trailing only Call of Duty Warzone Points and Apex Legends' Apex Coins in terms of revenue.
FIFA 22 will be released on October 1, 2021, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch platforms.
