The popular board game, Settler’s of Catan, is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch. Catan was announced last year, but we now finally have a release date: June 20, 2019!



Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment, is pleased to announce that Catan, the acclaimed multi-million seller board game created by Klaus Teuber, will be released on Nintendo SwitchTM on the 20th of June.

The game will be showcased with all the benefits of the Nintendo Switch system while providing players with the full Catan experience. “We are eager to let players play Catan on the Nintendo Switch as we’re sure it will appeal to those who played the board game while also engaging with new audiences having an opportunity to discover this masterpiece. Combining our unique digital expertise and board game roots is key in delivering an immersive experience on par with what critics and players expect from Catan in the digital era,” says Pierre Ortolan, CEO of Asmodee Digital.

Catan is a cornerstone of board game design, easy to learn while offering a lot of strategic depth. Players are compelled to settle the island of Catan, carefully positioning their assets to optimize access to resources that can also be traded. Every decision counts!
