Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package's retail release in Australia set for May 10th, 2019, June delay was listed in error

All's well that end's well

Well this is some fantastic news. Not that long ago, EB Games had listed Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package's retail release as delayed into June 2019. Thankfully the official Saints Row Twitter account has commented on the matter, and they say the listing was updated in error. The planned release date for both digital and retail in Australia is May 10th, 2019, the same date as the rest of the world.

Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package - more gameplay footage

Put the wildest chapter of the Saints Row saga in the palms of your hands for the first time on Switch. You bring the fight to Steelport, a sordid city of sin drowning in sex, drugs, and (a lot of) guns. This is your City. These are your rules.

The crazy professor is at it again

Larkspur, Calif. – May 7, 2019 – Deep Silver is live with another Memorable Moments trailer for Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package on Nintendo Switch. Watch as The Boss survives death traps and an onslaught of enemies in ‘Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax,’ the overly gratuitous but insanely fun gameshow beloved by all Steelport residents.

Prepare to watch in awe as our contestant, a.k.a. you, takes down novelty mascots, shoots through tiger targets and makes a profit whilst doing it in ‘Professor Genki's Super Sparkle Lab For Fun.’ For what it’s worth, this dangerous game is still probably safer than driving in Steelport, and remember you've gotta stay ethical – no-one likes it when you shoot a panda.

Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package fires onto Nintendo Switch May 10, 2019. All footage in this video is taken directly from the Nintendo Switch running in TV mode at 1080p.

Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package's local co-op requires two Switch units and two copies of the game

A bit of a bother

Here's a warning for those of you who are planning on getting in on the local co-op with Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package.
You're not going to be able to do any sort of split-screen local multiplayer. Some people believed that would be the case after reading this official blurb about the game.

Portable Over The Top Co-op: Fly solo, or play online with a homie and for the first time - two players can play side to side via online or local multiplayer.

If you want to enjoy that local multiplayer, you'll need a friend with their own Switch, as well as their own copy of the game. Not exactly the easy local co-op we're used to, but at least local co-op is still an option.
