Sid Meier's Civilization VI brings empire building and diplomacy to Nintendo Switch
Look, ma! It's another third-party game of the sort Wii U led us to believe could never come to a Nintendo console.
Strategy games may not have a long, rich history on Nintendo platforms, but every now and then, some publisher tries to bring a PC hit to Mario's house to keep him company. Yesterday, 2K announced it will make such an attempt, with Sid Meier's Civilization VI.
Originally developed by Firaxis Games and heaped with all sorts of genre and industry awards, Civilization VI is due to arrive on Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018. The port is being handled by Aspyr Media, rather than Firaxis (which, let's be honest, is probably already hard at work on the sequel).
In the Civilization titles, your goal is to "build an empire to stand the test of time." You do this by exploring, researching technology, battling and defeating enemies, threatening world leaders and in general having a strategic good time.
