Publisher Deep Silver has finally lifted the lid on the Nintendo Switch release date for Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package. We're pleased to let you know that you'll be able to get your hands on it from 10th May.

The news comes from a tweet shared by the studio today; no other details were given, but we're happy to have a date now confirmed.

The third instalment of the Saints Row franchise, this game has players leading the Third Street Saints gang in a bid to overtake its rivals in the city. The series is often compared to Grand Theft Auto thanks to its open world setting and the weapons and vehicles used throughout.

Last year, it was confirmed that the game would include all previously released DLC, explaining the reasoning behind the game's cheeky 'Full Package' title. If you haven't played this one before, check out this trailer from the original 2011 release.
