Even though this is just a compilation of remasterings of old episodes, the release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch is quite an event. It marks the first time that episodes of the main GTA series have been released on a Nintendo console. Along with that, with Nintendo’s console setup being what it is, Rockstar’s compilation rendering on Switch also generates curiosity. The first images of the Switch version are therefore clearly intriguing.
Rockstar Games has released the first screenshots taken from the Switch version of its GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition. Six in number, these screenshots are taken from the three titles included in the compilation. On the menu: photos of the scenery, images taken during the gameplay but also a screenshot taken during a cutscene. These captures of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition are available in our gallery below.
As previously stated GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition brings together three episodes of the famous series. These episodes, GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas, are offered in their version “Definitive Edition. “On Switch, these remasterings will not benefit from all of the improvements offered on other platforms.
GTA Definitive Edition, yes, but on Switch
Rockstar is still talking about changes to the lighting and surroundings. High resolution textures and greater viewing distance are also promised. Gameplay level, the compilation will benefit on Switch as on other machines from a grip inspired by that of GTA 5.
As a reminder, GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition will be released digitally on Switch on November 11. People who have pre-ordered this digital version can now preload it through the eShop.
A semi-physical version for GTA on Switch
Regarding the boxed version of the compilation, marketing is still scheduled for December 7th. Note, however, that this physical version on Switch will be incomplete. Like other greedy games released on Switch, Rockstar’s compilation will not fit entirely on its cartridge.
Indeed, the American publisher has already revealed that part of the content of the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition will have to be downloaded. If the situation has not yet been clarified by Rockstar, it seems that buyers of this Switch version need to download Vice City. Unless Rockstar Games clarifies the situation before that, we will have to wait until December 7 to be sure.
