The announcement marks the 20th anniversary of the game, which is also set for re-release on PS4, Xbox One and Steam on 28th February. In a press release from Decibel PR, CEO of System 3 Mark Cale said: “The drive and ambition to bring products to the world’s most dynamic gaming systems has stood System 3 in good stead over it’s 35-year existence. The Nintendo Switch is the latest example of hardware allowing us to bring our unique vision to the market.”

With it’s Switch release, Constructor will support wireless play, with up to four players able to compete against each other in various challenges. System 3 highlight the Switch’s portability as a major element of the re-release: “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 is one of a few third-party announcements for the Switch that leaves us hopeful for quite an extensive library for the upcoming console. Such games include Triple-A games like Sonic ManiaThe Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, as well as some popular indies including Yooka-LayleeThe Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, and Shovel Knight.

It’s nice to see some veterans of the games development keeping up to date with where the industry is today. I’ve never had the chance to try out Constructor, but this new release on current platforms gives me all the more reason to try it out.
