Fans of Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered have discovered a collection of Switch controller button icons inside the game, potentially suggesting that it could be on the way to Nintendo's console.
The game, which is a remaster of the 2009 third-person shooter title Red Faction Guerrilla, was released on Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the start of July. Considering the original was also released on Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 - Sony and Microsoft's current consoles at the time - it really wasn't surprising to see that the Switch wasn't included in its remaster line-up.
However, buried within the Windows version of the game are the icons seen below. These images are present in the game's files, along with an XML file which lists them all individually. The images and text files are reportedly in the same style as those on other platforms, despite a Switch version never being publically on the cards.
So, does this mean that a Switch version is on the way? Possibly. Of course, it's impossible to know for sure until an official announcement is made - the icons could simply be there as a kind of placeholder, just in case a Switch version ever did come about. This seems unlikely, however, as the extra work needed to create something that wouldn't definitely be used seems counter-productive.
The most likely scenario here is that either a Switch version is indeed in development, or it was at the very least discussed as a high possibility. All going well, we'll hear something about this from an official source in the coming months.
Until then, why not let us know if you think the game could be coming to Switch in the comments below? Would you like to explore Mars on the go?
