Red Dead Redemption Releasing August 17

The classic GTA-style open world game set in the Wild West will be arriving on Switch very soon.

Early this morning, Rockstar Games announced that they would be re-releasing their 2010 Wild West action-adventure game, Red Dead Redemption to a modern era which includes the Nintendo Switch. The game is the predecessor to 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2. The story follows a former outlaw, named John Marston who must travel the American West and Mexico to eliminate the last of an infamous gang of outlaws in order to save his family.

Alongside the main campaign, the zombie-filled story expansion, Undead Nightmare is also included. It should be noted that online multiplayer is not included. This re-release will be handled by Double Eleven Studios, a studio which has been credited as support on many games including Switch games like Minecraft Dungeons and Songbringer.

Red Dead Redemption will be releasing for Nintendo Switch on August 17 at the price of $49.99. The physical release will be arriving on October 13. It will be the third game from Rockstar Games to hit the Nintendo Switch, following 2021’s GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition and 2017’s L.A. Noire.
