This past summer we learned that Asmodee Digital was planning on releasing a swath of games for the Nintendo Switch™ and this week they have announced their line-up starting with some of their most beloved titles: The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game, Pandemic, Munchkin, Catan and Carcassonne.
“Bringing our most popular titles to new platforms is a no-brainer, but we’re going a step above to make sure they are optimized for Nintendo Switch,” said Philippe Dao, CMO of Asmodee Digital. “The new audiences that await us on this platform are clear to us, and we’re glad to offer them the best of board games.”
This holiday season you can look forward to playing the official adaptation of Klaus-Jürgen Wrede’s Carcassonne! Build your medieval city by strategically placing tiles and meeples. The digital Carcassonne includes 3D maps, solo mode and 4-player local multiplayer.
Like a little collectible card game action with your Tolkien? The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game (LOTR) lets you adventure alone or with a friend as you face-off against the forces of Sauron. You’ll be able to customize your decks and form your fellowship to make sure you have powerful allies to help complete the story-driven quests. LOTR releases in 2019.
Following on the heels of LOTR, Pandemic players race to find the cure for four deadly diseases. You can play alone or in local, 4-player multiplayer. The Nintendo Switch adaptation is coming out in 2019.
A few other titles that will be releasing next year are Klaus Teuber’s trading and route building game, Catan, and Steve Jackson’s dungeon crawling card game, Munchkin.
