Mini Metro - Joy-Con pointer controls footage

Not too many games use the Joy-Con's motion control features to mimic Wiimote-style pointer controls, but Mini Metro is one of them! Check out the footage above to see how well things work out.

Mini Metro supports video capture

Those planning to pick up Mini Metro might be happy to know that the game supports video capture. You can record up to 30 seconds of gameplay and send it online to various social media accounts.

I've been on the fence about this game. I know it's award-winning and I do love puzzle games, but something about this one seems a bit confusing. Anyone here have any experience with the game on Switch, or any other platform?

Mini Metro Arrives On Switch Today, Adds Console-Exclusive Multiplayer

August 30, 2018 - Radial Games is excited to announce gorgeously minimalist subway simulator Mini Metro is available now on Nintendo Switch, available for $9.99 USD on the Nintendo eShop. Originally developed and released on desktop and mobile devices by Dinosaur Polo Club, Radial Games teamed up with the original development team to bring this beloved title to Nintendo’s handheld console. In addition to the gameplay fans know and love, the Nintendo Switch release features fluid controls that just work, regardless of whether you’re playing with a controller, using motion controls or the touch screen, and a huge, exclusive addition: multiplayer!

Featuring support for four players, team up (or argue) with your friends to design the most efficient metro network you can. Spread across three different modes of play - Normal, Endless, and Extreme - try your hand at designing subway systems in 20 different real-world cities, each with their own unique colour schemes and obstacles. From New York City, to Osaka, to Mumbai, get ready for a world tour of efficient and collaborative metro mapping that offers up a unique experience with each session thanks to randomized city growth.

In addition to gameplay that bridges the gap between hectic and relaxing, Mini Metro also features a soundtrack by Disasterpeace that dynamically adapts to your gameplay, evolving as your subway grows and becomes more complex. Right down to the visuals which are based closely on the iconic and abstract subway designs of Harry Beck, Mini Metro is a feast for the senses.

Mini Metro is available now for Nintendo Switch, alongside Steam (PC / Mac / Linux), iTunes App Store, and Google Play. For more information about the game, check out Radial Games and Dino Polo Club’s websites, and follow both teams on Twitter here and here respectively.

Key Features

Multiplayer: Build with up to 4 friends, argue over the best designs, and collaborate to build the best metro network possible.
Compelling, constructive, hectic, relaxed gameplay. If that makes sense.
3 game modes: Normal for quick games, Endless for stress-free play, and Extreme for the ultimate challenge.
20 real-world cities to design subways for, including London, New York City, and Paris. Each has a unique colour theme and set of obstacles.
Random city growth, so each game plays out differently. A strategy that proved successful last game may not help you in the next.
Each game's map is a work of art, built by you in the classic abstract subway style of Harry Beck. If you think it's a keeper, save it, tweet it, and show it off!
Dynamic soundtrack by Disasterpeace.
Colorblind and night modes.

Mini Metro available on Switch in Japan

In Mini Metro, you take on the task of designing the subway layout for a rapidly expanding city. Your city starts with three stations. Draw routes between these stations to connect them with subway lines. Commuters travel along your lines to get around the city as fast as they can. Each station can only hold a handful of waiting commuters so your subway network will need to be well-designed to avoid delays.

Eventually your network will fail. Stations will open too quickly. Commuters will crowd the platforms. How long the city keeps moving is up to you.
