PARIS - June 6, 2018 - Asmodee Digital, the industry leader in digital board game entertainment, announced today it will soon begin publishing games on Nintendo Switch. The first release in Asmodee Digital’s console development strategy will be Carcassonne, the digital version of the award-winning, tile-laying board game, already available for Android, PC and Mac via Steam. The Nintendo Switch™ adaptation will be available in Winter 2018.
“Carcassonne is the first Asmodee Digital title of many to follow on Nintendo’s platforms,” says Pierre Ortolan CEO of Asmodee Digital. “This partnership is based on Nintendo’s need for new user experiences, and Asmodee Digital’s continued goal of bringing great board game IPs to new platforms.”
“Bringing Carcassonne to the Nintendo Switch platform is an opportunity to enlarge the success of this iconic game,” said Moritz Brunnhofer, Managing Director, Hans im Glück.
Simple to pick up but challenging to master, Carcassonne presents players with endless opportunities for tactical play. Within minutes, players will find themselves in tough situations - determining where to put their last meeple, whether to use tiles to expand the city, or to hinder their opponent. Players place only one tile each round, and have the option to place one meeple on it. Each game develops differently, full of boundless possibilities, and the quick-fire nature of the game ensures that Carcassonne always runs at a brisk pace.
