The release of FIFA 18 on the Switch has been slightly marred by the console’s lackluster online service.
Due to a lack of an invite system, present in some first-party games like Mario Kart, players are unable to join friends for a match over the net.
There is no dashboard-based invite or party system through the friends list, so there’s no cross-app support for getting games started with your friends.
With third-party game developers having to manually create their own invite systems to mesh with Nintendo’s existing friend system, this seems like a nightmare scenario. Let’s hope it gets a better solution soon.
