Building it up

UPDATE: After posts appeared on the official Constructor Facebook page which stated that the game was set to arrive on Switch in April, we asked the PR company behind the original press release exactly when this title is going to be released. Apparently they were given incorrect information, and the actual release date for the game on Nintendo's console is April 28th.

ORIGINAL STORY: System 3 has announced that it is bringing its popular city-building sim Constructor to the Nintendo Switch on launch day.

Originally released in 1997 on PC, Constructor is similar to SimCity, but the player has to drive rival construction firms out of business. The Switch version is part of a raft of HD updates for PC and consoles which were due for release last year but have been subject to multiple delays.

Here's the official PR:

System 3, the world's longest running privately owned publisher and developer of market-defining PC & Console titles, proudly announces that its long-awaited Constructor will be released on the hotly anticipated Nintendo Switch™ console.

The release of Constructor on Nintendo Switch™ marks the 20th Anniversary of the multi-million-selling city builder and is testament to System 3's ability to keep up with the rapidly-changing world of gaming hardware.

Using the Nintendo Switch™, Constructor fans will be able to seamlessly take their construction empire with them, allowing players to build, sabotage, and cause construction chaos anywhere. Caught short and need to lay some pipe during Constructor? Undock your Nintendo Switch™, take your place on the porcelain throne, and continue building your empire in uninterrupted comfort. Just remember to flush.

Constructor also utilises the wireless play of the Nintendo Switch™, allowing up to four mates to effortlessly play against each other in the many multiplayer Constructor challenges.

"The drive and ambition to bring products to the world's most dynamic gaming systems has stood System 3 in good stead over its 35-year existence. The Nintendo Switch is the latest example of hardware allowing us to bring our unique vision to the market. You'll now be able to build and run your construction empire anywhere you like – you'll never stop building!", said Mark Cale, CEO of System 3.

Constructor will be released on launch day for Nintendo Switch™, and 28th February for Xbox One, PlayStation® 4, & Steam players.
