Saints Row: The Third is bringing its octopi guns, tigers in cars and ball-shots to Nintendo Switch


Crazy crime sequel is Switch-bound

Deep Silver is bringing the batshit-insane open-world crime title Saints Row: The Third to Nintendo Switch. The publisher announced the news this morning at Gamescom in Cologne.

Saints Row: The Third, which originally launched on PS3, PC and Xbox 360 last generation, took the GTA-style sandbox series and cranked the knob to eleven, plastering the game in lurid colours, insane weaponry, ridiculous over-the-top action sequences and a nutty, gang-warfare storyline that involved Tron-like hackers, mad luchadores and jobbing wannabe actors.

Little more info was revealed for the left-field port, but we do know that its coming in 2019, with more info to follow in the near-future. Someone better call up Johnny Gat, we got business to take care of. And this time, it's handheld.

Saints Row: The Third is currently in production for Nintendo Switch. Never forget that Nintendo once didn't want Night Trap on their consoles and heavily censored Lethal Enforcers.
