Cities: Skylines was just released after a surprise announcement at the Nintendo Direct. The game is available for the Nintendo Switch on the Nintendo Eshop for $39.99. The game also comes with two expansions: After Dark and Snowfall with full support for Switch Pro Controller.
The game was originally available for Windows PC and Linux, later coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4.
The game is a typical city management game that focuses on many different aspects of city-building and urban planning, but is notable for including day to day urban occurrences like traffic jams. In addition, new players will find a series of tutorials that are designed to bring them up to speed.
Cities: Skylines is a modern take on a classic city builder. With original gameplay to realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city. Boasting fully realized transport and economy systems, Cities: Skylines is designed to suit any play style – and now, anytime, anywhere.
Multi-tiered and challenging simulation: Constructing your city from the ground up is easy to learn, but hard to master. Playing as the mayor, you’ll be faced with balancing essential requirements like education, healthcare and much more along with your city’s real economy system. Citizens in your city react fluidly, with gravitas and an air of authenticity to a multitude of gameplay scenarios.
Extensive local traffic simulation: Colossal Order’s extensive experience developing the Cities in Motion series is put to work in fully fleshed out, well-crafted transport systems.
Districts and Policies: Be more than just an administrator from city hall. Designating parts of your city as a district results in the application of policies which results in you rising to the status of Mayor for your own city.
Two of the most popular DLC packs are also included in the switch Version: After Dark and Snowfall. After Dark focuses on nightlife and entertaining the citizens of the city, adding casino buildings and luxury hotels. While Snowfall adds snow and other winter themed elements as well as street cars.
