Popular management sim Tropico 6 has been officially confirmed for Nintendo Switch.

The game will be treated to a release on Nintendo's hybrid machine thanks to a new publishing partnership deal between Koch Media and Kalypso Media. Rumours of a Switch release began to circulate back in January after a product listing for the game was spotted on a Greek retailer's website, but the release hadn't been mentioned in any official capacity until now.

The two German companies say that the new agreement covers Kalyspo's "full pipeline of products", including Switch editions of Tropico 6, Railway Empire and Commandos 2 - HD Remaster.

No release date has been announced just yet, but this could well be one to keep an eye on. Our friends over at Push Square awarded last year's PS4 version an 8/10, calling it "one of PlayStation 4's best strategy games".
