Yo, dawg. We heard you like ports, so we’re gonna give you more ports on top of ports. Ever since Nintendo hired rapper Xzibit to head up their games division, the company’s smash hit Switch handheld console has been a goldmine for developers that port their games to the platform. While some of these ports are cheap cash-ins of old titles we’ve seen dozens of times, we do see some gems here and there. Today, publisher Paradox has announced that it is releasing its hit city-building simulation Cities: Skylines on the Nintendo Switch e-Shop today.

Cities: Skylines tasks the player with building out and maintaining cities of various sizes and geographical constraints. The new Nintendo Switch version will also include the DLC expansions that the original PC version received since its launch, including the After Dark and Snowfall packs.
