In a surprising turn of events, the Nintendo Switch could add a significant title to its existing roster… Red Dead Redemption 2. According to recent findings, a classification rating in Brazil suggests that the critically acclaimed open-world adventure may soon be available on the popular portable console.
The rating was discovered and shared by Twitter user @necrolipe, revealing that the 2018 blockbuster title has been rated for the Nintendo Switch by the Brazil ratings board. While no official announcement has been made about a Switch release for Red Dead Redemption 2, the rating strongly implies that it may be coming sooner rather than later.
Interestingly, rumors have been circulating about potential PS5 and Xbox Series X/S native ports for the game. These were reportedly under development but were shelved last year. In contrast, Rockstar Games, the developer behind the series, brought the original Red Dead Redemption to the PS4 and Nintendo Switch just last month.
The potential introduction of Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Switch raises some intriguing questions. Given the hardware limitations of the Nintendo Switch, it will be captivating to see how the game is adapted and what compromises might be necessary to ensure smooth gameplay. Some speculated that it might be introduced as a cloud port. However, the classification from Brazil disputes this theory since cloud ports don’t usually receive ratings in the country.
As of now, Red Dead Redemption 2 can be enjoyed on PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms and has achieved an impressive milestone of shipping over 55 million units globally. Fans and critics alike have
