FIFA 23: ALL celebrations on Nintendo Switch and how to do them

FIFA 23: ALL celebrations on Nintendo Switch and how to do them

 We show you how you can execute all the celebrations of the Legacy version of FIFA 23 for Nintendo Switch since they are performed in a different way than the rest of the platforms.

In this entry of our FIFA 23 guide, we focus on showing you only and exclusively how to do all the celebrations with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con in the new installment of the EA Sports soccer simulator. Since FIFA 23 only has a Legacy version on the Nintendo console, you should know that some celebrations are unique to this platform and others are done completely differently than the PlayStation, Xbox, or PC versions.

Having said that, we are now going to list all the FIFA 23 celebrations on Nintendo Switch and their step-by-step tutorial so you know how to do them.

Naming Notes:

  • LS: stands for left stick.
  • RS: means right stick.

Career Celebrations

Running celebrations can be done just after scoring a goal when our player is running and celebrating the goal. At this moment we can move the scorer around the field with the left joystick and if we perform certain combinations of buttons, the desired celebration will begin.
