An A-Train Game Is Headed To Nintendo Switch


A game in Artdink’s A-Train series is in development for the Nintendo Switch, the developer has announced via Twitter.

A-Train is a series of train simulation games that first began in 1985. Ever since, Artdink has developed A-Train games for the Famicom, Mega Drive, PlayStation, Nintendo 3DS, and everything in between. The latest game in the series, A-Train: City Simulator, was released for the 3DS in 2014. In it, you played the CEO of a transportation company, and were tasked with building a transportation system to help turn the city’s fortunes around.

A-Train: City Simulator was localized a year later by Natsume, and eventually ported to the PC as A-Train PC Classic (pictured above). More recently, ArtDink also released A-Train Express, a port of A-Train 9 for the PlayStation 4, with VR support.
