Here’s What the GTA Trilogy Looks Like on Nintendo Switch
Rockstar has released a number of screenshots for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy on Nintendo Switch ahead of the game’s release later this week.
The screenshots, which can be found on the Switch section of Rockstar’s GTA Trilogy page, show off a range of different remastered scenes from across the three games included in the package.
Included within the set are a number of iconic GTA characters from way back when. While GTA III’s Claude can be seen strolling through the streets of Chinatown, there’s also a shot featuring Tommy Vercetti and Ken Rosenberg, and another showing CJ from GTA San Andreas’ pictured mid-motorbike chase. As can be seen below, there are also a number of more scenic vistas shown off in the collection including the series’ Hollywood parody Vinewood and Vice City’s Ocean View Hotel.
While it perhaps shouldn’t be too hard to improve upon the graphics of the original titles in the series – given that they were released almost two decades ago – there’s still something to be said for the work that Rockstar has done. From the images shown, the trilogy looks as if it will shape up well on the Switch, where design choices seem to have both bolstered each games’ visuals while also retaining a retro feel.
It’s worth pointing out, however, that certain lighting elements and textures do look to be of a lower quality than other editions of the game on console and PC – we’ll be able to get a much better sense of the scale of those differences when the collection arrives.
GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition launches on November 11 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For more on the series make sure to check out this piece detailing how you can pre-load the game across a range of platforms now.
