By the looks of the thumbnail, it seems as though the games included in the collection are the first three 3D games in the Grand Theft Auto franchise: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. No release date has been announced by Nintendo or Rockstar Games as of this writing, but we'll be sure to keep you updated whenever new information is available. For now, Nintendo stated that the games will be released "later this year".
Grand Theft Auto has been an incredibly successful franchise, with the online component of the latest game, Grand Theft Auto V, being the single most profitable piece of media ever made. For many Grand Theft Auto fans, the early 3D games were where their journey first began. Though we have doubts that Grand Theft Auto V will make it to the Nintendo Switch, fans are still hopeful.
A new and improved Nintendo Switch
The newest member of the Nintendo Switch family is the OLED model, which incorporates new and improved features to the system including a larger OLED display, a more stable kickstand for tabletop play, a LAN port, and an upgraded 64GB of internal storage. It's the classic Nintendo Switch, but better.
