The series-capper (so far) for the Saints Row saga is heading to the Nintendo Switch. Get ready for the completely insane trip that is Saints Row 4.
Saints are back
It was only a little while ago that Saints Row 3 made its way to Nintendo’s console, and now the fourth title in the set is joining it. Publisher Deep Silver has made the news official, saying that the last-gen title would be appearing on Switch next month, on March 27th.
If you somehow missed out on SR4, then you missed what many consider to be the best of the series. The game is completely insane, and totally eschews the more mundane aspects of SR as a series.
The leader of the Saints has been voted in as President of the US. But that’s not all. He or she (you make your own character) is immediately besieged by an alien menace. The result is a game that plays like a mix of Independence Day and The Matrix.
As you can see, it’s a pretty title too. Even though it’s been around for a few years, SR4 is a sharp game graphically, especially for something open-world. And from these screens, it’s looking good on Switch.
Here are the finer points, direct from Deep Silver:
- The American Dream – Play as the President of the United States in a wild story that spans countries, time, and space. It’s up to you to free the world, now for the first time on Nintendo Switch™.
- Super Hero-in-Chief – Leap over buildings. Kill people with your mind. Run through tanks. Those are just some of the powers on offer that you can wield in your quest.
- Alien Toys of Destruction – Wield an impressive array of alien vehicles and weapons. The Inflato-Ray, the Polarizer, the Disintegrator, and many more are all are yours to utilize.
- Custom Weapons, Custom Mayhem – You’ve customised your character. You’ve customised your clothes. Now you also have a powerful weapon customisation system.
- Dynamic Duo – Seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op, a Saints Row standard, improved. The only thing better than one malicious super powered President is two!
- Fully Re-Elected – Saints Row IV Re-Elected contains an impressive 25 DLC Packs, including the Dubstep Gun (Remix) Pack, the Presidential Pack, the Commander-In-Chief Pack, and two celebrated episodic story expansions: Enter The Dominatrix and How The Saints Save Christmas.
