The latest A-Train game will head to the Switch worldwide on March 12, 2021, and everyone can try a demo now to see what it’s like. Nintendo took to its North American and European Twitter accounts to announce the game. It also revealed the official localized name: A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism.
While the focus in A-Train games is always to figure out how to arrange a city’s train, managing the city itself is a factor. You will determine the best ways to make money, including getting involved in the stock market. You’ll work with a Tourism Lead to determine routes to attractions like Ropponmatsu Castle, Suma Shrine, or Oshio Hot Springs. You’ll even customize the trains themselves.
Artdink announced A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism back in February 2020. The Switch version offers an updated, 3D look for the title. It also included new character designs for the people you’ll “work” with in game. For example, the Secretary got a makeover. Yuji Himukai, who designed the characters for Etrian Odyssey, worked on the art for all of the people in this latest installment.
The A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism Switch game will appear in North America, Japan, and Europe on March 12, 2021. The A-Train Switch demo is available now.
