The Saints Row series finally comes to the Nintendo Switch this week with one of the most popular games in the series – Saints Row: The Third.
Third time, first time
The 3rd game in the long running Saints Row series might be the best-loved out of the 4. It lacked the (completely) over the top, sci-fi shenanigans of IV, while offering a well crafted take on the open-world genre. And of course, it still had plenty of the series’ staple humor attached.
Now it’s available on the Switch, and in Full Package format. That means that pretty much everything that was released for SR3 is included. Minus a few things that the developer actually left out due to balance concerns, this is indeed the “complete” version of the game.
If it’s not your bag though, not to worry. There might be something else in Nintendo’s slate of releases this week to grab your attention. Sniper Elite v2 Remastered, Redout, Lovecraft’s Untold Stories and more are all coming up.
