Airborne Kingdom has done pretty well with reviewers and fans of the genre. As a city-builder, so long as the control scheme transfers well to consoles, it should be an excellent on-the-go experience on Switch.
As a sky city builder, Airborne Kingdom adds some interesting challenges to the usual fold of resource management and territorial expansion. Among other things, you will have to properly adjust your city’s weight, fuel supply, and more. You’ll be able to explore the surrounding lands, discover lost technologies, and rebuild long-lost connections with the kingdoms on the ground below.
Have you played Airborne Kingdom on PC? If so, what did you think? Is the Switch release on your radar at all? Let us know in the comment section below. Personally, I think that the game looks quite interesting. I am very excited in seeing how it translates to a handheld system. If the control scheme works well, I might have to give this one a try.
