Giebelstadt, Germany, November 9th: Hear ye, hear ye! Important news for all of you who own a Nintendo Switch™! Townsmen is out now, so all budding architects and town-planners can begin designing the medieval metropolis of their dreams. Whether it’s from the comfort of your own home or out and about, Townsmen is the must-have city-builder on Nintendo Switch.

Townsmen (Switch) is based on the long-lasting Townsmen series and comes with a carriage-load of content: players can pick between 26 different scenarios – such as protecting a city under siege from bandits or making sure the King’s birthday party is a huge success – or play one of 24 sandbox maps and build a thrilling town from scratch. It’s up to you as a wise ruler and careful planner to fulfill the needs of your beloved Townies, who follow individual daily routines.

In Townsmen Switch players can research up to 75 different technologies, 45 production buildings and 129 other structures, all of which need to be considered if you want to succeed: Townies appreciate short commutes to work and love to enjoy food or relax in nearby parks when off the clock. But with so many different elements to consider, including the elements themselves (seasons and weather strongly impact planning – Townies consume way more water during summer, for instance), crafting the perfect home won’t be simple.

Townsmen is available now for Nintendo Switch with an SRP of 19,99 € / 19,99 $. The game is developed and published by HandyGames.
