Red Dead Redemption 2 Could Arrive on the Nintendo Switch

Many gamers have praised red Dead Redemption 2 as one of the best games of the previous decade.

Rockstar spent eight years on the development and refinement of Red Dead Redemption 2, and the results were quite impressive. The renowned developer managed to refresh the aging open-world experience, crafting a vibrant world that felt believable and alive.

In a surprising move, a PC version of the game was released a year later, making many PC gamers happy. The version was available exclusively on the Rockstar Launcher and via Epic Games for a limited time, but it arrived on Steam at a later date. A recent leak has sparked some debates as some believe that a Nintendo Switch version of the title could be in the making.

Target Australia made an exciting change to the product page of the title. While the game was listed as available for the Xbox One and PS4, the Nintendo Switch was added and then removed from the listing.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Might Indeed Launch on the Nintendo Switch

Some sources claim that the update could have been a mere mistake since Target may have wanted to add a special offer, but an employee introduced the wrong data when the listing was updated.

However, some other factors have to be taken into account. Rockstar has stated in the past the game will not arrive on the Nintendo Switch, even if there was enough demand for a port.

The limitations of the portable system represent another block. For example, the base version of the title requires at least 80 GB of storage space, while a Switch game cartridge has a maximum capacity of 64 GB.

This limitation could be circumvented by compressing the assets of the game to reduce the size or by allowing users to download the remaining files. But the graphics of the game would have to be downgraded considerably for the Switch. More data could surface in the future.
