Civilization 6

The Nintendo Switch is getting a big dose of strategy later this year. Today, 2K announced that Civilization VI is coming to the portable console, and the game is due to launch on November 16th. The Switch version looks to be the full game, and it will even come bundled with some of the later additions to the game, including the Viking, Poland, Australia, and Persia and Macedon content packs. It’ll also feature co-op and competitive play for up to four people playing wirelessly.

Civilization VI first launched back in 2016, and since then, it has been steadily updated and improved. Late last year, it made a surprise appearance on the iPad, so the Switch version isn’t a huge surprise. Much like the recent reveal of Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition for the Switch, today’s announcement was likely due to be a part of this week’s delayed Nintendo Direct event, which was postponed due to an earthquake in Hokkaido, Japan, earlier this week.
