Saints Row IV

Earlier this week, Deep Silver issued a new update for Saints Row IV on Switch. Version 1.7.0 is now available.

This week’s update primarily includes a host of fixes. For the full patch notes, continue on below.

Deep Silver has passed along additional information about the new Switch version of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected.

First up, it’s confirmed that Saints Row IV: Re-Elected runs at 720p in handheld mode and 1080p docked. A dynamic resolution option is also included to maintain steady 30 frames per second, though “this mode resolution will be varied in intensive gameplay situations in order to keep frame rate consistent.”

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected will support gyro aiming. This will be included in the digital version from launch and through a day-one update for physical copies. It’s enabled by default, but can be switched off in the options menu.

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is finally here on Switch, and we have a first look at the game running on Nintendo’s console. Check out a bunch of footage below.

Note: a few portions are briefly muted due to copyrights with music. Also, keep in mind the video was recorded with drifting Joy-Con, which certainly makes things more difficult.

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, which was listed for Switch by multiple retailers, has now been officially announced. Publisher Deep Silver has passed along word that the port will indeed launch on March 27.

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected retains the same zany, open-world antics of the original release. 25 DLC packs are also built right in.

Here’s some information about the game as well as the first Switch trailer:

Saints Row IV was thought to be coming to Switch after it was listed by a French retailer. A page for the game has now popped up on Amazon as well, all but confirming the news.

Amazon says that Saints Row IV will be released for Switch on March 27. GameFly has a listing up as well with the same date.

Here’s an overview of Saints Row IV, along with some screenshots:

Switch already has one Saints Row game in Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, which launched last year. Its sequel may now be on the way as well.

GameXplain spotted that French retailer Cultura listed Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for Switch, though that page has since been removed. A distributor in France has a similar listing up, and while it’s labeled for PS4, the consensus is that this was just a mistake – especially since the EAN product numbers are identical. The PS4 version has also been out for quite some time, and there’s a March 27 release date listed here that makes sense for Switch since it’s the only current console without the game.

For those that haven’t heard about Saints Row IV previously, here’s a handy overview and trailer:
