Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Civilization VI Comes To Nintendo Switch On November 16

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, winner of The Game Awards’ Best Strategy Game, DICE Awards’ Best Strategy Game and the latest entry in the prestigious Civilization franchise, is coming to Nintendo Switch 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. Explore a new land, research technology, conquer your enemies, and go head-to-head with history’s most renowned leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

And now on Nintendo Switch, the quest to victory in Civilization VI can take place wherever and whenever players want.

ACTIVE RESEARCH: Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.

  • DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY: Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
  • EXCITING AND UNIQUE SCENARIOS: Civilization VI for Nintendo Switch includes four playable scenarios, each with a different setting and style of gameplay inspired by history. 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.”
  • COOPERATIVE AND COMPETITIVE MULTIPLAYER: Up to 4 players can cooperate or compete for supremacy via a wireless LAN.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI will be available on Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018.

I was hoping for Cities Skylines but CIV is good. Gimme



Well that's unexpected that's the unannounced third party title some of us were predicting would come.



So Megaman XI demo and Civ VI probably were part of the cancelled Direct. Hmm. Just read in another thread that Square has four unannounced games at TGS. Were one of it planned to be revealed in the Direct? Can we expect more stuff like this over the next days?

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

I guess these are all Direct games. What is Nintendo going to do with it, now that the 3rd parties are just making the announcements themselves?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Well, they can't show the same direct now, can't they. At least they cannot say: and MegaMan XI demo is available right after this presentation.

Nice. I might actually buy it this time around. IMO its a pretty good fit in handheld mode.

They will probably reformat the direct to reflect this. Instead of full blown announcement, we can expect smaller headlines announcements for the games previously revelead.

Well, nothing really. Just run direct as normal, and change "new announcements" to "upcoming".
