My brothers in law both love these games. I never quite got the appeal. Good news for those that wanted this though.

Curious to see how this holds up performance-wise compared to the other console versions. Also wonder why they wouldn't include the Platinum expansion, or if they'll try to bring that to Switch later as DLC?

Any word on whether mods will be allowed on Switch? That was the big news for 17 on PS4/X1, but haven't heard anything about them coming to Switch too.

I'm guessing this was the game that appeared - very briefly - in the January Nintendo Switch reveal montage?

Edit: Or maybe a different one? I could have sworn it had a more stylized/less realistic look. May have to revisit it.

This is a series I've always wanted to get into, but never had the time. Having it portable will definitely help me to get into it. Hoping for a US release.

I believe the game requiring lots of farming to which you refer is the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Lol, you mean I don't have to steal other people's fruit and vegetables? :eek:

Edit: Thanks for the link Shiggy(saved me some trouble on mobile). Seems like that's the one.

Spent more than 200 hours with FS games. Can't wait to finally play a proper game on my Switch!

Fendt >>>>>> all the rest.

Of course I know that both Fendt and Massey Ferguson belong to AGCO...
