The board game Root continues its success - but this time again as a digital adaptation. After releases for PC and smartphones, Root is now also available as a game for Nintendo Switch available. The release took place on November 16th.
The asymmetrical board game Root by Leder Games remains the theme in the scene: The title conquers the Nintendo Switch and thus appears on a console with the option of controlling the game by touch. Players can compete against each other online or locally via split-screen mode.
Root: online, split screen or solo
As with the version for smartphones, root is available for Nintendo Switch a “board game to go”. Thanks to the console's hybrid concept, you can also play the digital board game on the go. The version – like the previously published digital adaptations – has a solo mode. Dire Wolf Digital was responsible for the implementation and announced the title via Twitter.
Two to four players slip into the roles of the four different factions and fight for victory points. The digital version adheres to the rules of the board game template, including the different playing styles of the available factions - each with their individual strengths and weaknesses.
The fights to be decided with digital dice roll are optically polished up with illustrations by Kyle Ferrin, the illustrator who gave the board game its unmistakable look. The digital version also includes the river people expansion with two new factions.
Dire Wolf Digital, an experienced studio that had already adapted board games such as Robbers of the North Sea or A Game of Thrones - Das Brettspiel, was involved in the implementation. Root is originally from Cole Wehrle, author of titles such as Pax Pamir and John Company, among others.
Root occupied on the Nintendo Switch around 500 MB of storage space and is recommended for ages 6 and up according to the USK classification.
