Along with this new release, Greenheart Games A new cross-save feature is being added, so you can now import your PC or mobile save file into the switch and vice versa.

After fascinating two million players on PC and mobile, Game Dev Tycoon Now lets you begin your developer journey on your Nintendo Switch‌: from your garage in the 80s, building and maintaining your team, researching new technologies and game styles, and finally making your studio a household name.

The Nintendo Switch is an amazingly innovative console with a diverse gamer audience and it is an honor to release Game Dev Tycoon on it. We took our time, but the game now feels at home, making full use of the touch screen and joy-con controllers.

Although the cross-save feature is designed to allow players to continue their game wherever they like, we are already seeing some creative uses of this feature for players to play through the game by collaborating by sending save codes to each other and taking turns. I can’t wait to see how it develops.
