Railway Empire – Nintendo Switch Edition is out now

Railway Empire – Nintendo Switch Edition is available as a physical version in stores and as a digital purchase on Nintendo eShop and includes not only the main game (including everything added and improved since original launch), but also the Mexico DLC, Crossing the Andes DLC and The Great Lakes DLC. Other content will be available for purchase on Nintendo eShop at a later date, including the Germany DLC, France DLC, and Great Britain & Ireland DLC.

In Railway Empire players can create an extensive railway network by purchasing 40 different types of trains, all of which are highly detailed, and constructing stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to stay ahead of the competition. For an efficient train service, players can hire and manage talented staff and develop more than 300 technologies, ranging from mechanical improvements to new trains and workplace infrastructure, through five eras of technological innovation. But beware, the competition never sleeps and three rival tycoons are eager to take over your business! Stay on top by sabotaging and fighting your rivals with heists and corporate espionage.
