Indie developer Midjiwan AB has today announced that it will be bringing its low poly strategy game, The Battle of Polytopia, to Switch on October 13th.

Releasing on iOS and Android back in 2016 as Super Tribes, the game has undergone a number of upgrades in the ensuing years - apart from just changing the name. Now available on Steam and even in Tesla's built-in arcade system, The Battle of Polytopia's Switch release will see the title's home console debut.

The game is much like Civilization with the rendering turned down a couple of levels - check out the above trailer and you'll see what we mean. You will take command of a tribe and then attempt to expand your group through battles and discovering new resources.

This Switch release is said to bring all of the tribes that are currently available in the game over from the Steam, mobile and Tesla versions, and adds joystick and touchscreen functionality.

For a full list of features that will be appearing in the game, check out the following from Midjiwan AB:
