The Settlers of Catan is a multi-million selling board game created by Klaus Teuber, where players assume the roles of settlers, hoping to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources. This Switch version, shortened to 'Catan', will "be showcased with all the benefits of the Nintendo Switch system while providing players with the full Catan experience", according to a recent press release.
Pierre Ortolan, CEO of Asmodee Digital, has shared the following:
“We are eager to let players play Catan on the Nintendo Switch as we’re sure it will appeal to those who played the board game while also engaging with new audiences having an opportunity to discover this masterpiece. Combining our unique digital expertise and board game roots is key in delivering an immersive experience on par with what critics and players expect from Catan in the digital era."
Other than this release date confirmation, there aren't many other details to speak of; even the official Nintendo page for the game only has a one-line description.
"One of the most popular board games ever, Catan, is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019!"
Still, we're sure we'll hear more about it as we get closer to its release and, until then, why not let us know if you're a fan of Catan in the comments below?
