    Take Two Interactive's strategy game, Sid Meier's Civilization VI will be arriving shortly on the Nintendo Switch. The Switch version of the game will include the base game and all previous updates, alongside four content packs. This marks the first console version of the game, as it currently is a PC exclusive title. Wireless LAN features will be included, to allow up to four players fight their empires, or play co-op together. Civ VI will be available on November 16, 2018.

    I've got fond memories of playing Civ V with my mates on the same PC. Hopefully I'll be able to relive that.

    Great news, finally a decent turn-based strategy on Switch, can't wait to try it in a portable mode.

    I think it's time someone makes a port song for the Nintendo Switch. "Another Port" could be a good title.

    Isn't the Switch a port from the Wii U somehow? Just came to my mind. Is it a new console or a port? :-)

    I can't believe that I survived to the day they released the real thing again on consoles instead of this awful Revolution series. I asumed after 2K China was defunct they just drop console releases all together. Though it's a mouse series, the touchscreen with the CivVI interface should work good enough yet I hate to use the touchscreen on the NX (sweaty fingers sometimes...). I hope that means a XCOM 2 release for NX. XCOM works great with controllers (the interface obviously was designed for it from the very beginning).

    So. Nuclear Gandhi for Smash? *scnr*

    I wonder if all these leaks and announcements are going to make the Direct shorter or they will just announce other stuff.

    Is there even going to be a Nintendo Direct at this point? Everyone's announcing the games they were supposed to do on the direct.

    Nonetheless, this is VERY exciting. This game is great. This is the kind of port most people are looking for. More well produced, bigger games with a wider variety of gameplay value overall. It's nice they are bringing it to the Switch. Hope they keep up bringing more games from other plataforms to this. (Please allow Nintendo to borrow Persona 5, Sony...)

    Are this games even good on console? IDK , every time that I play simulators on anything different than PC feels boring, even making it intuitive.
