Dovetail studio producer Natalie Dodd shared more about how the team worked together to ensure Catan offers a meaningful adaptation of the strategy classic: “We’ve collaborated closely with Nomad Games and Catan to provide players with an authentic experience unlike any other. We tried to pay attention to the little details, like the bunting that decorates the longest road or the little chimney when someone builds a city; each part of the game has been carefully designed to bring the board to life.”

Catan – Console Edition doesn’t have a final release date in 2023 yet, so stay tuned for when you can bring your favorite board game to your PlayStation and Xbox consoles. It’s currently available for wishlisting on PlayStation with wishlisting arriving soon on Xbox.
