Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Rumor: Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is coming to Switch!

Back in August 2018, Deep Silver announced it was bringing Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package to the Nintendo Switch. As exciting as this was for fans of the series, at the time we couldn't help but question why the third entry was selected instead of the sequel, Saints Row IV.

Now, less than a year after the third game's release on Nintendo's hybrid system, French retailer Cultura has listed the fourth game in the series for the Switch. It's titled Saints Row IV: Re-Elected – which is the version that includes all of the existing downloadable content.

Although this listing has now been removed, a distributor (also located in France) has put up its own listing for the Switch version of Re-Elected. It gets a bit weird here, with a PS4 listing for the game (which has been out since 2015) seemingly revealing the release date of the Switch version: 27th March 2020.

I haven't gotten a chance to play through The Third yet, but glad to hear that another is already on the books to come to Switch. Now they will just need to make sure not to release it as an unfinished mess again.

Ugh, more fossilized last gen shovelware.
I hope this doesn't turn into a year of Switch drowning in regurgitated old rope while lacking worthwhile new releases. :(

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I don't know if I'd call it shovelware. It sucks we get last gen ports, but I dont really mind it.

Hopefully runs better than SR3 did. Bring on the ports!



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Meh, It's ok. I think Saints Row 3 is much better though.

And Rockstar still doesn't give a fuck with GTA V



Another day another port rejoice fans of the genre on Switch.

No doubt these games will come on the smallest cart and require 95% of the game to be downloaded to play!

Saints Row 4 is a small game, originally a 360/ps3 title, they can fit it on an 8gb card. SR3 didn't require a download so I see no reason why this one would either.

I swear Saints Row 3 on Switch in Australia the advertising preorder box said required SD card for download.  This is the reason I didn't buy it. In fact I recall even cancelling preorder based on this.

Maybe a big screw up in advertising? or in Australia we got screwed?
