Update: A rating for 'Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition' has surfaced in Korea. No platforms are listed.

Original Story [Thu 12th Aug, 2021 19:25 BST]: Ever since the Nintendo Switch launched plenty have hoped for some sort of Grand Theft Auto port on the system, with plenty wondering whether Grand Theft Auto V would make its way to the hybrid system. However, now Kotaku has shared a report suggesting another long-rumoured release is on the way to Switch and other systems.

The report states that a GTA Remastered Trilogy is nearing the end of development, with Switch being a supported platform along with other consoles, PC and even mobile. The games included are Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, with the remaster project using a mix of new and old assets through Unreal Engine.

The studio reportedly in charge of the project is Rockstar Dundee, which was Ruffian Games prior to acquisition, a team with a track-record of major releases and remaster work. Like many projects it's apparently endured some delays and changes of plan over the past year, with the report stating that a late October / November release is now on the cards. Supposedly the trilogy will come in one complete package, potentially as a download-only product.

In any case, this would be the first GTA release on Nintendo hardware since the very decent Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars way back on the DS, so it'd certainly be a notable arrival.
