GTA IV & EFLC for the Nintendo Switch

Recommended Posts

slendermanof212

Many video games, even violent ones like Dark Souls and Skyrim have ports on the Nintendo Switch.
I don't see why GTA IV & EFLC couldn't. The Switch is perfectly capable of handling GTA IV and EFLC (but not GTA V)
I miss the fun physics and the hustle and bustle of Liberty City. I couldn't play it anymore as I sold off my PS3 and

360 and my PC is unable to run it, even with the recent patches (The PC port is 💩). It is perfect to see GTA IV on the Switch, especially with portability.

Rockstar recently released LA Noire for the Switch. It works great! I hope I can say the same for GTA IV

 

I have recently made a photoshopped picture of the Nintendo E-Shop with GTA IV and its episodes (ignore the prices)

https://i.gyazo.com/2934e6701980e38778606f2b9ab1c528.png

 

I have also made an image of what Bowling with Roman could look like. This minigame could make use of a single Joycon instead of both, which is used by normal gameplay. (The + button is the pause menu button, it should be the - button)

https://i.gyazo.com/cdc8133386830bf005889a820d5b2972.jpg

 

If there is no GTA Switch port by May, I will put up a change.org petition

A part the fact that they probably won't consider a petition on change.org, I don't see Rockstar making a Switch port for GTA IV and EFLC for many reasons... First of all, the playerbase! No, I'm not saying that Nintendo's consoles and games are made just for kids (because it's not true), but we all know that the majority of GTA fans play on PC, Xbox or PlayStation. Second, GTA and Nintendo aren't really "great friends": just 4 chapters managed to come out on Nintendo consoles (GTA on GBC, GTA 2 on GBC, GTA Advance on GBA and GTA Chinatown Wars on NDS). And third, the lack of interest in previous titles. Rockstar, sadly, at the moment is just focused on GTA Online (still a cash cow after more than 5 years) and RDR2 Online (which, at the moment, is quite awful, let's hope in the next patch!), GTA IV 10th Anniversary and GTA V 5th anniversary haven't been remembered in any way... Plus Vice City Stories is still waiting, after almost 3 years since its 10th Anniversary, a "special treatment" (that we'll probably never see) that older titles received. Yes, we might hope to see something like L.A. Noire Remastered, but IMO it's highly unlikely... One thing is for sure: to have a Switch port there has to be a PS4/XO version too!

Can't you run GTA IV on PC? That's strange, every modern PC should be able to run it at least at 720p low settings! Yes, we're talking about one of the worst PC ports ever made, but it's still a 10-years-old game. I've just upgraded my old GTX 970 to a new RTX 2060 and I'm finally able to run GTA IV in 1440p at max settings (including the draw distance) at a constant 60FPS. Surely you don't have the power of a RTX 2060, but even with a modern integrated graphics card you should obtain some decent results.

Unlike Skyrim and dark souls gta is probally the most popular game to pick on for being inappropriate for children. Despite the popularity of the game on the forums and elsewhere the game is far from a fan favorite. The game is disliked amoung many fans I feel gta sa has a higher chance of being on the switch before any other gta game.

I never said a gta game could never come out on the switch but saints row isn’t exactly talked about around the world for being inappropriate for children and most parents don’t even know what it is. But yeah that is a pretty big deal and it is a sign that a gta game on the switch isn’t out of question.

I’m not really a Nintendo person so I don’t mind the fact that no GTA is on Nintendo Switch.

No you can't. The game stutters to below 60 frequently even on God tier hardware.

That's because Rockstar made an awful PC port... If PS3 and X360 were able to run it, then Switch should have enough "horse power" to make it playable.

And since 5-6 years GTA IV has more or less the exact same performance on high-end hardwares, you'd struggle to keep 60 FPS with a GTX 780Ti but, at the same time, you'll probably experience the same problems with a RTX 2080Ti.

This^ I just want to play me some gta 4 + episodes, saints row 1 and 2, rdr, cod bo 1+2 and mw2+3, and many other games without no dumb PlayStation now charging $100 a YEAR for a lot of games i wont play, stuttering and lag, no multiplayer, and many other dumb stuff. I have been waiting for 4 years and I will get hella mad if i buy an xbox 1 or last gen console only for these games to come out like next year on ps4 or even remastered...

Forget about it. The switch port will obviously not include the cut songs due to the 10 year licence bullcrap.

GTA V can run on last gen consoles, I don't see why it couldn't run on Switch, even if it's just a PS3/Xbox 360 port.

It wouldn't really make sense, i mean if you either are playing with joy-con controllers or the Switch pro controller how the heck will combat system and driving work. It'd probably be a nightmare.

 

It's like saying that you want to port GTA to the OUYA game console.
