The physical Nintendo Switch release of Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition will land in stores in February, Nintendo has confirmed. The release of the physical edition of the game was delayed because of game-breaking bugs and issues.
The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition bundle contains remastered editions of the three titles Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The release of the trilogy is surrounded by controversy because it contains a large number of issues.
The physical Nintendo Switch release of the bundle was delayed until further notice while development studio Grovestreet Games worked on improving the titles. The bundle is widely criticized for featuring lesser quality renditions of the original three titles with gamers citing poor performance, stuttering, blurry graphics, game-breaking bugs, malformed textures and even missing a chunk of its original soundtrack.
Despite the digital edition being available since early November, only some of the issues have been resolved thus far - much to the fans' disappointment. The physical Nintendo Switch release is now set to hit shelves on February 11, 2022. Whether a digital download is required to play the game from the physical cartridge is still unknown.
Grand Theft Auto Trilogy: Definitive Edition released on November 11, 2021, for PC, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
