Who said that management and building games are the purviews of PC gaming? Certainly not SEGA. If you ever wanted to experience what is needed to manage a hospital on a home console, Two Point Hospital is your chance!
The trend of PC-exclusive titles being ported to consoles continues — even those you wouldn’t think would be portable due to native keyboard and mouse design.
Just as Joystickr reported on Tropico 6 coming to PS4 and Xbox One, in which you manage an island nation, Two Points Hospital is receiving the same treatment — but, this time, you will be able to play it on Nintendo Switch, alongside PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Two Point Hospital is the spiritual successor of Theme Hospital, a business simulation game released in 1997 by the legendary gaming studio Bullfrog — headed by the somewhat-controversial Peter Molyneux, who has exerted a huge influence on the gaming industry. Molyneux birthed whole new types of games with Populous, Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper, and Theme Park.
As you may have noticed, all of those have in common some level of management where you start from scratch and build something that makes you proud.
Two Point Hospital will come with all the updates it has thus far received on the PC platform. This includes the expansions Bigfoot and Pebberley Island.
The game design of Two Point Hospital can be summed up in one word: accessibility. This is just one of the reasons why it received overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam.
From cartoony-but-sleek visuals to curing comical diseases, Two Points Hospital takes the core of what it means to run a successful hospital and then packages it into something extremely appealing and engaging. Needless to say, it is suitable for all ages.
You can look forward to this unique game later this year — both in digital and physical form. An exact date has not yet been specified.
