Japanese developer Sonic Powered has released the first trailer for I am an Air Traffic Controller: Airport Hero Haneda for Nintendo Switch.
Today, Japanese developer Sonic Powered released the first trailer for I am an Air Traffic Controller: Airport Hero Haneda for Nintendo Switch.
The trailer gives a first look at the animated gameplay, which is an air traffic controller simulation based on Tokyo Haneda Airport in Japan, challenging the player to steer planes around aprons, runways and surrounding airspace to ensure proper operation. .
Unfortunately, this also confirms that the game will feature fictional airlines, unlike its predecessors, which is always a shame as it negatively impacts immersion for many enthusiasts.

I’m an Air Traffic Controller: Airport Hero Haneda will be released on September 8, 2022, and we already know that it will include English support in addition to Japanese.
If you are not familiar with the I am an Air Traffic Controller series, originally developed by TechnoBrain for PC, it has been around for 24 years since its debut in July 1998. Recently, Technobrain released I Am an Air Traffic Controller 4 in English on Steam (also featuring Haneda), followed by the Naha DLC, with the arrival of Sapporo New Chitose.
On the other hand, Sonic Powered has been releasing console spin-offs on PSP and Nintendo handhelds (Nintendo DS then 3DS) since 2006 with the Airport Hero subtitle, proving quite successful in Japan and even getting a handful of localizations.
Now the Airport Hero series is finally making the leap to the newest handheld, the Nintendo Switch, and the fact that it’s coming in English is really awesome for fans who don’t speak Japanese.
By the way, this isn’t the first aviation game on the Switch for Sonic Powered, which recently released Landing Hero Haneda x 787 both in Japan and the West.
