Today, Rockstar has shared more details on Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition which was recently confirmed to be heading to Nintendo Switch.
The collection will let you play Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas with "across-the-board enhancements", including new lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, Grand Theft Auto V-style controls and targeting, and "much more".
The studio has shared the trilogy's first trailer (up above) and Nintendo's updated eShop listing confirms that it'll launch for the platform on 11th November priced at £49.99 / $59.99. A physical Switch release also launches on 7th December.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition includes:
- Grand Theft Auto III: It all starts in Liberty City. With the revolutionary freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, Grand Theft Auto III puts the center of the criminal underworld at your fingertips, if you have enough guts to take it.
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City: Welcome to the 1980s. From the decade of big hair and pastel suits comes the story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile. Grand Theft Auto returns with Tommy Vercetti’s tale of betrayal and revenge in a neon-soaked tropical town full of excess and brimming with possibilities.
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas: Five years ago, Carl ‘CJ’ Johnson escaped the haze of Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs, and corruption. Now, it's the early 90s. CJ’s got to go home - his mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart, and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of cops frame him for homicide, forcing CJ on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets in the next iteration of the series that changed everything.
We've also been treated to our first set of screenshots, although no screens specific to the Switch version have appeared just yet:
