Farming Simulator 17 Switch version confirmed

There were a lot of important Nintendo Switch announcements today, but we know which one has us most excited.

It’s always a little surprising to look at our stats and see how much interest the Farming Simulator games – and other supposedly “boring” simulations, like truck driving or forestry – do with the gaming public. There’s clearly a big appetite and a sizeable audience for virtual horticulture.

Now get ready to take your brand new combine harvester on the road: the Farming Simulator 17 Switch version has been confirmed.

Details are few and far between thus far, but as far as we know, the Farming Simulator 17 Switch version is going to be a relatively straight port of the current edition of the game. We’re not sure when the release will be, but given that development on the game finished a while back and only the work to actually port it is required, we’d be surprised if it wasn’t around the launch of Nintendo’s latest cons-held (or at least, soon after).

Focus Home Interactive have also confirmed that Farming Simulator 18 – yes, you read that right, eighteen – will be coming to PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS at some point in 2017. It’s likely that this will be a cutdown or modified version of the current release, more like a version 17.5, prior to the expected main series release of Farming Simulator 18 on PC and consoles later in the year.
