Asmodee Digital will start publishing board games on the Nintendo Switch

Asmodee Digital will soon begin publishing digital board games on the Nintendo Switch, starting with its hit tile-laying game, Carcassone.

The popular tabletop game is already available for Android and has PC and Mac versions on Steam. The Nintendo Switch adaptation will release this winter.

“Carcassonne is the first Asmodee Digital title of many to follow on Nintendo’s platforms,” said Pierre Ortolan, CEO of Asmodee Digital. “This partnership is based on Nintendo’s need for new user experiences and Asmodee Digital’s continued goal of bringing great board game IPs to new platforms.”

Moritz Brunnhofer, managing director of the board game publisher, Hans im Gluck, added: “Bringing Carcassonne to the Nintendo Switch platform is an opportunity to enlarge the success of this iconic game.”

More and more, board games are finding crossover in the digital space. This latest development follows the reveal of Catan VR, a digitization of the popular tabletop game developed by Experiment 7.
