Rejoice Civilization fans who want to take their societies on the go! Although the word leaked out last week, yesterday’s Nintendo Direct confirmed that Firaxis and 2K are bringing Civilization VI to the Nintendo Switch. I’ve been dying for more strategy/sim games to come to the platform, and thankfully, they’re starting to. Something as big as the Civilization franchise on the console gives me hope for even more to come.
I love these kinds of games, but with all the kids in the house (and a toddler), sitting down at the computer to strategize for a few hours is almost impossible. Doing it in quick 10-15 spurts, where I can put things into “sleep mode” and come back when I can, is much more manageable for me. As such, I can’t wait to get my hands on this when it launches on November 16, 2018.
Originally created by legendary game designer, Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you build an empire to stand the test of time. Civilization VI for Nintendo Switch includes the latest game updates and improvements and four additional content packs which add four new civilizations, leaders, and scenarios:
Vikings Scenario Pack
Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack
Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack
Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack
Will you be picking this up for the Switch in November?
