North Star Digital Studios (a digital board game development studio from Kensington, MD) are today very thrilled and proud to announce that their award-winning tabletop strategy game “Evolution” (which has 3 million players worldwide across physical and digital editions) is coming to the Nintendo Switch on December 10th, 2020.

Evolution, 2019’s Digital Board Game of the Year, has been rebuilt from the ground up with lightning quick Joy-Con™ support, making it the perfect platform for online play*, pass and play, and board gaming on the go.

Are they at risk of being eaten by predators? Protect them with horns or a hard shell. Having trouble finding enough food in the watering hole? A long neck brings previously inaccessible food within reach.
Tinker with the nigh-infinite amount of genetic combinations while enjoying new artwork, animations, and a campaign mode complete with deadly bosses. Ascend the leaderboards and become the best digital board game biologist in the world, earning new avatars and other rewards. Cross-play with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android means there’s a whole world to play against.
