A new trailer has been released for Firaxis Games' Sid Meier's Civilization VI coming to the Nintendo Switch, the trailer showcases to players what they need to do when they jump into the title on their hand-held console.

The trailer has been revealed through Tweets onto the Nintendo America Twitter page, as well as the Civilization Twitter page. Within the trailer, Nintendo Switch owners are informed about what will be required of them if they decide to pick up Civilization VI for their Switch. Players will need to firstly select a leader of their civilization, then work towards expansion as they grow their city turn by turn. This is done through making farms to feed your population, building lumber mills and mines to increase production and much more.

It was also confirmed by the Civilization VI Twitter page that the title will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch with touch controls. Twitter user 'Taffer' asked the Civilization VI Twitter page "will Civ on switch have touch controls?" and then the page replied with "Yes, it has touch controls." This should make scrolling throughout the map, unit selection and other aspects of the game much easier for players while in hand-held mode. Civilization VI will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on November 16th, for more information visit the official eShop listing here.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
