Mini Motorways and Mini Metro getting big crossover update in July

To celebrate series' 10th anniversary.

Minimalist traffic management sim Mini Motorways and its subterranean predecessor Mini Metro are getting "one of the series' biggest updates ever" on 24th July, as part of developer Dinosaur Polo Club's tenth "Miniversary" celebrations.

More specifically, Dinosaur Polo Club is marking ten years since the studio first hit upon the idea for Mini Metro during a Ludum Dare Game Jam, creating an early iteration of the game that would go on to make a major splash when a fully formed version released the following year.

Since then we've seen a successor in 2019's majestic Mini Motorways, and Dinosaur Polo Club is now preparing a sizeable crossover update for the two games, bringing three Mini Metro maps into Mini Motorways and sending three maps in the other direction.

Come the update's release in July, New York City will make the jump from Mini Metro to Mini Motorways following a fan vote, and it'll be joined by two other maps: London and Mumbai. Mini Metro, meanwhile, is getting Tokyo, Warsaw, and Lisbon from its sibling.

That's not all though! Dinosaur Polo Club has also confirmed Mini Motorways' three new maps will include another major crossover feature: trains. "Plan the perfect routes for a happy, bustling city," says the developer, "now factoring in a rail system."

The Miniversary Update (as it's officially known) will be available for Mini Motorways and Mini Metro on all platforms when it launches on 24th July.
