Billion Road is out TODAY for Switch

Become a virtual billionaire!

acttil is thrilled to announce that critically acclaimed board game style experience Billion Road is now available for Nintendo Switch™ via Nintendo eShop as well as Steam®!

To celebrate the game’s launch, we’re offering 20% off during the initial launch week (4/16 - 4/22) on all platforms, and a limited-time bonus original soundtrack will be available via download on acttil’s Billion Road website and Steam page! Immerse yourselves in Billion Road’s joyful, upbeat music even when you’re not playing, and check out the Billion Road trailer to learn more about the game!

Billion Road takes you on a journey to a huge number of real-life prefectures and cities throughout Japan, and your goal is to be the richest player in the game when you pull into the final destination. Up to 4 players can compete using a single Joy-Con™ for Nintendo Switch or online for Steam. It’s a race against the clock to buy up businesses, landmarks, and anything else that comes up for sale! A variety of iconic monsters will also appear to help or hinder your progress, depending on their mood. You’ll need smarts, determination, and a little bit of luck to come out on top, so prepare for the race of the century in an effort to become Japan’s next big billionaire!

The core objective in Billion Road is pretty straightforward—travel all across Japan and earn more money than anyone else. You earn money by landing on property squares with investment opportunities, like a sushi restaurant in Ginza or an animation goods store in Akihabara. After you invest, you’ll have to wait until March rolls around for those investments to pay off. In the meantime, be on the lookout for errant monsters that may shower you with riches...or throw a wrench in your plans! You can also earn extra money by landing on item squares, which can either help you reach your own goals or simply ruin your rivals’ plans. If you finish the game with the most money...you win!

Key Features

Brains, Bravado, and Lucky Breaks! Dice and random events will help decide your fate...but you’ll also need to invest wisely, take calculated risks, and rely on the whims of unpredictable monsters if you want to become Japan’s next billionaire!

Over 30 items and 50 monsters! You’ll encounter dozens of items and monsters, each with their own effects. Use them to push your opponents around, ruin their investments, and generally make their lives miserable. But be careful, because while they may help you earn money and pull ahead, they can also make bad purchases or investments on your behalf. This can change the game at a moment’s notice, so study the monsters well to make sure you know when to walk away, and when to run!

Multiple Modes Means Maximum Mayhem! Tournament Mode is a single-player version that lasts for 30 in-game years, while Skirmish Mode is a quick multiplayer experience that lasts a mere 36 months. Whether long or short-term, it’s sure to get the adrenaline pumping!
