The timing is perfect for this seven year old game to rear its head out there again, as we have word that Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is getting its official release on the Switch here in March. To be more specific, it looks like fans of this Volition title will be able to add it to the mix soon, as March 27th is not too far off and the official release date on the new platform. It is almost like it was planned or something. That or Deep Silver wanted to keep the Saints Row franchise flowing. I know I am hoping it is to get us all talking just before they announce another huge entry into the franchise. That is always the hope with this kind of thing.
It should be obvious, but this version of Saints Row IV will have all the remastered stuff that we had before and all of the DLC mixed right in. It would have been truly odd for them not to have that in there, but I wanted to put any worries to rest for you. Even if I am not sure how we are going to be able to use the control scheme we had before in this one. The Switch has yet to show me how it can handle all of the inputs needed very well. I guess this is why we had to wait so they could remap everything for Saints Row IV to fit the new system. We will see…
