New Zealand indie developer Dinosaur Polo Club are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Mini Metro, a subway sim-strategy game. Its modern successor, Mini Motorways, is going to reap the benefits of the celebration, with new crossover maps from Mini Metro, as well as a new rail system.
The new features will drop in a large, free Miniversary Update on July 24.
The new maps were decided via a community vote between 30 maps from Mini Metro. The final winner is New York City. As an added bonus, London and Mumbai will also be added to Mini Motorways.
Mini Motorways will also receive a highly requested feature in those three new maps: trains! The new rail system will help alleviate more traffic congestion in some of the biggest cities.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade since Mini Metro first came into the world! To see how this Mini-vision has expanded into something truly massive has been indescribable, and we owe a massive thanks to our incredible community of players,” said Ben Emerson, marketing coordinator, Dinosaur Polo Club. “Our players have shared so many special moments with us, from connecting families during hard times to easing anxiety after a long day and even a marriage proposal. It’s a special milestone to celebrate with our players and bring so many exciting crossover maps and features into both games for everyone to enjoy. I think players will really like the addition of trains into Mini Motorways too, it’s been a long time coming, and this has felt like the perfect time to introduce such a highly requested new feature to this game. Here’s to another 10 years of Mini!”
The Miniversary Update will release on July 24. Mini Motorways is available on PC (Steam), Switch, and Apple Arcade. Mini Metro is also available on PC, Switch, Apple Arcade, and Android iOS.
