In a surprise reveal at Gamescom 2018, publisher Deep Silver has announced that Saints Row: The Third is on its way to the Nintendo Switch. Currently, no specific release date was announced but for now, it is scheduled for “next year.”
Saints Row: The Third is, of course, the third installment in the Saints Row franchise, which is known for its action-adventure gameplay and open-world environment. The arrival of the third game on the Switch will mark the first time a Saints Row game will appear on a Nintendo system. There is no confirmation on whether the latest game in the series, Saints Row IV will also be ported to the Switch.
The game puts players in the role of the leader of the Third Street Saints gang in a mission to eradicate rivals in the city. Several fans have noted the Saint's Row similarities with the Grand Theft Auto franchise due to its open-world setting and gameplay elements.
Saints Row: The Third is scheduled to release on the Nintendo Switch sometime next year. The game was previously available for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
