While physical copies were being released as early as Monday, today marks the digital, as well as the official, release for Saints Row IV: Re-Elected on the Nintendo Switch. As the trailer below (it's after the age-gate) shows, the cat's out of the bag in this port of the 2013 original. This is Saints Row dialed up to 11 - fighting aliens and using super powers. This version contains the original content as well as all 25 DLC Packs. That includes the the Dubstep Gun (Remix) Pack, the Presidential Pack, the Commander-In-Chief Pack, and the story expansions - Enter The Dominatrix and How The Saints Save Christmas, and more.
The full press release is after the Read More link after that trailer (behind the age-gate, remember?) and we will soon have a review up for the Switch version of the game we gave an 8 to back in 2013.
SAINTS ROW IV: RE-ELECTED OUT NOW ON THE NINTENDO SWITCH
Party like it’s 2013 on the Nintendo Switch with the mayhem, destruction, and dubstep of Saints Row IV: Re-elected
Larkspur, Calif. (March 27, 2020) – Deep Silver today announces that the critically acclaimed Saints Row® IV™ Re-Elected™ is now available for the Nintendo Switch at retail and the Nintendo eShop (MSRP $39.99). Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for Switch is fully charged with an impressive 25 pieces of outlandish DLC to offer the total package of high-octane gameplay.
Taking the story of the Third Street Saints to a level out of this world, the boss of the Saints gang has been elected as President of the United States of America and charged with saving everyone from a deadly alien invasion. This super-charged edition of the much-loved series has to be seen to be believed.
Deep Silver Fishlabs handled the conversion to Switch and the game runs flawlessly at native 720p resolution in handheld mode and 1080p when docked. Players can enable dynamic resolution to achieve a stable 30fps, although in this mode resolution will be varied in intensive gameplay situations in order to keep framerate consistent.
The much-lauded gyro aim feature for Switch will be included in the digital version from the start and via the day one update for retail copies. Enabled by default, this can be switched off and on depending on player preference.
