Saints Row: The Third is coming to Switch, Deep Silver has announced.
This is so awesome.
wait, why such an old one? Why not 4? Saints Row 3? Really? I hope they improve the heck out of it.
Number 4 was god awful. Number 3 is waaay better than that alien invasion crap
Kind of subjective I enjoyed all the titles but it's sr1 above all others
okay, glad to hear. Just seemed so random to want to start with that title.
It had some REALLY cool parts though, the super powered drug trip/race was really cool, as was the streets of rage homage.
It definitely is strange. But maybe they are testing the water first before bringing more SR games to the Switch.
Hopefully they bring more across more free roam titles are always a plus
Apparently, it's because 3 sold the best out of them thus far, so they're hoping to stretch its legs out a little longer using the Switch's popularity as a new system.
fair enough, I didn't play any of them after 1, so glad to see that at least we are getting one of the better ones, lol.
This is widely regarded as much better than 4 so as long as it's cheap the it could be alright. Portable Sandbox is what the Switch needs.
I still like 4 for the stupidity it provides... I mean, the game starts with Aerosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing...
Seems strange it’s not a port of Saints Row IV with the Gat out of Hell standalone DLC included in the package
Never played saints row, maybe I'll give it a shot now that it's on switch. I'm mainly a portable gamer, always have been and always will be.
That’s too bad , you have missed some of the best games ever. Don’t get me wrong I love portable as I own a 3DS Vita and Switch (which isn’t that portable without a bunch of power banks)
@jznrpg I don't really feel I've missed them because I play most of the good games but just can never invest 60 plus hours on each game. I mean I have all consoles but I'm never home so I can never play them. Horizon took me a year to finally complete in June and persona 5 a couple of months. On switch I've been able to complete most of the games I've bought because I can squeeze in some time every now and then away from home.
yea let's just bring all last gen games to the switch.
Like Doom Eternal. Oh wait?
would you rather the system not have the game at all? Just a question.
@Gaming4Life - so less is more in your opinion.. got it
You mean the PS4 and X1 don’t have last gen games on it? Mind blown.
ps4 and xbox do have last gen games on them and most were pointless and are just cash grabs. My problem is everytime I look up the switch is getting more and more old inferior games and charging full price for most of them, that's my problem. I like my switch and I only have 2 games which are the best 2 games on the system. I just want more than old games and inferior ports or shitty indie titles.
On the contrary. Xbox One provides content like this at no additional cost instead of a $39.99-$59.99 price tag. As Saint’s Row 3 is backwards compatible and was free through Games With Gold in May 2014. And as with all Xbox 360 games via Games with Gold 360 titles are yours to keep even if your subscription to Gold expires.
I didn't know Wolfenstein was last gen
wolfenstein is an abomination on the switch just like monster hunter.
Way too many ports of last gen coming out on the Switch. People won't like to admit it, and they will use the line "games are games" but it's clear that the Switch is struggling to handle many current gen titles. I don't think I have seen so many previous gen games being ported to a current gen system as much as I have seen with the Switch. I'm not saying ports are a bad thing by the way, PS4 and Xbox One are doing the same now and again, but unlike the Switch, they are getting pretty much every game released in the last 5 years. The only way they can get these games on the Switch is if the scale it back massively, and it looks like devs just don't want to do that which is why they port last gens games onto it instead.
Don't forget about the new games coming to Switch too. Good to have a mix, especially when most of these last gen games are also on the other new systems too.
Well it's a solid game deffinetly a favourite overall but just a odd decision seems like it's a missed opportunity for a collection
So many announcements. Wonder what other classics are coming to the Switch. This and Grandia 1 and 2 came out of left field.
Wish it was SR2 tbh.
Man, this sounds very similar to the Wii's success.. now they are getting every port.
Saints Row 2
Loved 3 and tolerated 4. 3 was a breath of fresh air and I played the shit out of it. Even after the campaign. I might double dip on this. Price pending
Every last gen game announced for Switch
Speculation but I wonder if this means a SR 3 (or even 1-3) remaster is on the way?
Just port 'em all. If I can't have GTA on the go, this is the next best thing.
They should also add Saints Row 1 and 2 those were the best ones SR 3 was alright and SR 4 was a meh at most the whole alien invasion and Matrix feeling of the game I didn't like. Still have my fingers crossed for SR 5.
I’m of two minds on this. On one hand, great, another game coming to Switch and that is good for people who want it. On the other hand, how many people are there that haven’t already played this game that would want to?
