Mini Metro is Chugging Onto Switch in 2018

The indie scene on the Nintendo Switch has been pretty active since launch, and now things are getting even better with the incoming arrival of a very popular new game: Mini Metro.

This title is a very well-received puzzle game. It released on Steam all the way back in 2015 and has an ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ label due to all the good reviews. The developers over at Radial Games have formally announced their plans to bring the title over to the Nintendo Switch:

We’ve been huge fans of the minimalist aesthetic and design of Mini Metro since it was first revealed to the world, and we are honored to be teaming up with our friends at Dinosaur Polo Club to bring the experience to the Nintendo Switch platform. The game looks as gorgeous on your TV as it does when cradled between the Joy Cons, and you’ll find it even more awesome to play.

We’ve been having a great time making the game the best it can be on the platform, and we’re excited that this secret is finally out! We’ve cleverly hidden another big bag of Mini Metro secrets around here somewhere, though. You’ll be hearing a lot more from us soon, as soon as we remember where we put it. The gorgeous aesthetic, procedurally generated soundtrack, and amazing gameplay of Mini Metro will be available on the Nintendo Switch in early 2018.

So, what’s the game all about?

Here’s a quick description:

In Mini Metro, you take on the task of designing the subway layout for a rapidly expanding city. Your city starts with three stations. Draw routes between these stations to connect them with subway lines. Commuters travel along your lines to get around the city as fast as they can. Each station can only hold a handful of waiting commuters so your subway network will need to be well-designed to avoid delays.

A release date has not been given yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated when that becomes available. In any case, the developers have provided a teaser trailer for the Switch version:
