Japanese Rail Sim: Journey to Kyoto Arrives On Nintendo Switch Westbound In April 2020


Dispatch Games announced yesterday that they are bringing the Japanese densha-themed simulation game Japanese Rail Sim: Journey to Kyoto for release on Nintendo Switch in April 2020.

This game is the latest game in the Japanese Rail Sim series, focusing on the Kyoto local rail line Eizan Railway, with three different train types to choose from. There is also a Guidebook that will introduce sightseeing spots that can be reached via the line, and the experience is made more realistic with live recorded footage from the actual line in Japan. The game released late last month in Japan, and will have both Japanese and English support in the Western release.

The game will release physically exclusively from Dispatch Games’ store, and is available for pre-order now. The game comes with a train keychain and pin:
