Have you ever been stuck in traffic and wished you could do something to fix it? In Mini Motorways, the city's traffic problems are in your hands.

From the makers of Mini Metro, Mini Motorways is a game about drawing the roads that drive a growing city. Build a road network, one road at a time, to create a bustling metropolis. Redesign your city to keep the traffic flowing, and carefully manage upgrades to meet the changing demands. Mini Motorways’ relaxing experience gradually ramps up in difficulty as planners remove roadblocks to keep the traffic flowing smoothly.

Explore stunning maps based on iconic cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Munich, and Tokyo. Draw the roads that drive the city, building a traffic network that adapts to ever-changing procedurally generated maps to create bustling metropolises. Choose from upgrades like motorways, traffic lights, roundabouts, and tunnels to meet the demands of your expanding road network and connect homes to destinations so everyone can get where they need to go.

Compete in daily and weekly challenges with special conditions such as Mini Notorways, where no motorway upgrades are granted, High Density, in which buildings can pop up in already crowded neighborhoods for extra traffic complications, and others adding a fresh change of tires to the dynamically growing cities of the world.

How long can you keep the cities of the world moving?

Mini Motorways has nearly four million players across Apple Arcade and PC (Steam) and is gearing up to take the scenic route for its Nintendo Switch version with a trunk full of new features when it hits the road in Q2 2022.

Exciting player-requested features will come to Mini Motorways builders, including the ability to sync saved progress from Steam Cloud to Nintendo Switch. This enables budding civil engineers everywhere to pick up Mini Motorways right where they left off on Steam. Some extra surprise goodies are also packed within this update for commuters new and old to enjoy. To make sure these additions have enough time under the hood to be fine-tuned, Mini Motorways on Nintendo Switch will be taking a little extra time to make sure it's in tip-top shape.

City planners on Nintendo Switch can soon build the roads of iconic cities around the world such as Tokyo, Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, and Los Angeles. Adapt construction strategies to ever-changing procedurally generated maps, and build a bustling metropolis.

Connect homes to hot spots to ensure the masses can go to and fro with ease. Utilize upgrades like traffic lights, roundabouts, and tunnels to meet the demands of an ever-expanding traffic network. Compete in daily and weekly challenges and secure a high score on the histogram-style community leaderboards. Valuing accessibility, Dinosaur Polo Club has also included preferred building and map color options for optimal visibility as well as improved controller support.

“We’ve been encouraged by our players’ enthusiasm since our launches on Apple Arcade and Steam,” said Robert Curry, Co-founder of Dinosaur Polo Club. “We have listened to many suggestions from the community, and we can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on with a whole new audience on Nintendo Switch!”

Alongside the Nintendo Switch launch, all new content will be available on Apple Arcade and Steam, so players can access them from wherever they want to play.

Key Features:

  • Dynamically growing cities that make every game unique!
  • Stunning maps visually inspired by cities all around the world for you to explore.
  • A variety of upgrades help you meet the demands of your ever-expanding road network.
  • Different colour modes to choose from, including colourblind and night modes.
