Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package

A few days ago, Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package landed on Switch. Digital Foundry has now taken a closer look at the game from a technical perspective. Note that the analysis was done prior to the first update dropping this week.

Unlike the last-gen versions of Saints Row: The Third, the game runs at 1080p when docked, which is an improvement. Of course, the resolution is reduced to native 720p in portable mode. Unfortunately, the use of quarter-resolution buffers can be harmful to the overall image.

Deep Silver hoped to have a patch ready for Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package at launch. Unfortunately, it ended up seeing a last-minute delay. It’s now confirmed that the patch is set to go live this Thursday, and will make making a number of improvements.

The full patch notes are as follows:

System: Switch
Release date: May 10, 2019
Developer: Volition / Deep Silver
Publisher: Deep Silver


There are certain genres that Nintendo consoles have historically missed out on. During the Wii generation, the Call of Duty style shooter was sorely missed – if not for an actual lack of ports (and well-forgotten games like The Conduit), then at least for the Wii’s inability to impressively render HD set piece spectacles. Open world games in the vein of Grand Theft Auto found similar enough success to spawn countless formulaic imitations, but the open world genre saw almost no representation on the Wii, and a handful of really bad ports on the Wii U. Perhaps the Wii’s greatest legacy was the perception that Nintendo consoles are bound to miss out on those “hardcore” blockbuster experiences.

Going along with the release of Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, Deep Silver has prepared a special Deluxe Pack. Take a closer look at its contents in the unboxing video below.
