Civilization VI Nintendo Switch release coming in November



Sid Meier’s Civilization VI will be available on the Nintendo Switch in November, 2K Games announced… and then unannounced.

The publisher looks to have a timed a website post suggesting a 16 November release to a Nintendo Direct announcement that didn’t end up happening, as Nintendo had to cancel the event due to a devastating earthquake in Hokkaido, Japan.

Civilization VI for Nintendo Switch includes four playable scenarios, each with a different setting and style of gameplay inspired by history,” the website post, now deleted, read.

“Be part of the colonization of Australia in ‘Outback Tycoon,’ defend Poland from invaders in ‘Jadwiga’s Legacy’ choose a Viking leader to plunder Europe in ‘Vikings, Raiders, and Traders,’ or conquer the known world in the ‘Conquests of Alexander.’

The Nintendo Switch version of Civilization VI supports up to four players across wireless local multiplayer.

Civilization VI was first released in 2016 — we gave the game 8.5/10 in our review. We also reviewed the game’s Rise and Fall expansion earlier this year.
