Nintendo Switch Gets MS-DOS City-Builder Constructor at Launch

The Nintendo Switch launch roster of games has gotten a classic addition in the form of Constructor HD.

While the game launches alongside the Nintendo Switch on March 3rd, it remains to be seen if this is a digital-only release, or if developer System 3 are planning a retail version as well.

Originally released for MS-DOS back in 1997, it was later ported to the original PlayStation, Mac, native Windows. The game also has a planned release on PC and consoles on February 28th.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via developer System 3:

Using the Nintendo Switch™, Constructor fans will be able to seamlessly take their construction empire with them, allowing players to build, sabotage, and cause construction chaos anywhere. Caught short and need to lay some pipe during Constructor? Undock your Nintendo Switch™, take your place on the porcelain throne, and continue building your empire in uninterrupted comfort. Just remember to flush.

Constructor also utilises the wireless play of the Nintendo Switch™, allowing up to four mates to effortlessly play against each other in the many multiplayer Constructor challenges.

“The drive and ambition to bring products to the world’s most dynamic gaming systems has stood System 3 in good stead over its 35-year existence. The Nintendo Switch is the latest example of hardware allowing us to bring our unique vision to the market. You’ll now be able to build and run your construction empire anywhere you like – you’ll never stop building!”, said Mark Cale, CEO of System 3.

Constructor will be released on launch day for Nintendo Switch™, and 28th February for Xbox One, PlayStation® 4, & Steam players.
