Rockstar Games has dropped the first Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition trailer and new details. The trilogy implements new controls and targeting akin to Grand Theft Auto V. The developers also added lighting and environmental enhancements like high-resolution textures and increased draw distance. They say there is also “much more” beyond these improvements.
According to the Nintendo Switch eShop page, the Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition will arrive on November 11th. Meanwhile, the physical release for the Switch will arrive about a month later on December 7th. As you may expect, the game will cost $59.99. For those downloading it from the eShop, it will require 25.4GB of storage space in order to install it. As a result, it is one of the larger games available on the Switch. This isn’t Rockstar’s first large game on the Switch though, as L.A. Noire was 27.5GB. However, players with the physical version of that game still had to download a sizable chunk of it. There is no word yet on how much of the Grand Theft Auto trilogy players with the physical version will need to download.
As was previously confirmed, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition includes remastered versions of Grand Theft Auto III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. It will land on multiple platforms, including PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 4 & 5. Furthermore, players on Android and iOS will get it sometime in the first half of 2022.
Alongside the new Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy: The Definitive Edition trailer and details, Rockstar Games also released the first batch of screenshots. However, none of them are specific to the Nintendo Switch version of the trilogy yet.
