It’s been almost seven years since the third installment in the popular Saints Row franchise came out, and now it’s heading to a Nintendo platform for the first time ever. It was first announced at Gamescom 2018 that it is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch. Now we know the version we are getting is Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package. Back when it first came out, this was the deluxe version of the game that comes with all three downloadable mission packs plus 30 bonus DLC items. That is a ton of content. It will be ported to the Switch by Deep Silver Fishlabs.
For those who don’t remember, here’s a little refresher for what went down in Saints Row: The Third.
After the Saints basically take over Stillwater, their fame has spread worldwide. This attracts the attention of the Syndicate, a legendary criminal organization. They want their due from the Saints who of course refuse to bow down. The Saints end up taking the fight to Steelport, which is heavily under the Syndicate’s control. It’s up to you and the Saints to take it back.
It’s kinda funny that after being on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC for so long they finally decided that Nintendo deserves a port. For longtime fans of the series, this may be a good time to revisit what I believe was the best Saints games ever. I’m glad they chose to port Saints Row: The Third and not the fourth game. With the Switch being both a home console and handheld, it offers people the opportunity to play this open-world action adventure title on the go. As of right now, we do not have a price or release date yet. The good news is players worldwide will soon be able to get their hands on it. Let us know if you plan on revisiting this game.
