Nintendo Switch – TV Commercial

Yesterday, Nintendo Germany shared the very first TV commercial for the Nintendo Switch. It doesn’t feature any voice over, or any even text on screen, which means it will most definitely be used worldwide.

Here’s the TV commercial:

Constructor is a game not unlike the famous Sim City, but with one major difference… you’re not the only one building in town, and you have to deal with rival companies. To win, you have to build on your own, but also sabotage rival companies’ construction site, and cause construction chaos everywhere.

Today, System 3 announced that they would bring Constructor to the Nintendo Switch. It will be available on April 28th, most likely in Europe and North America. The Switch version of the game will offer online multiplayer with up to 4 players, with many “Constructor challenges” to tackle.

Unfortunately, we do not have a price for the game, but no doubt we will get more details about it in the near future… In the mean time, here’s the boxart (courtesy of System 3):
