A Brazilian score board itemizing suggests Crimson Lifeless Redemption 2 is coming to Nintendo Swap, 5 years after the unique sport launched for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
A brand new itemizing for Crimson Lifeless Redemption 2 on the Brazilian Ministério da Justiça website (their Ministry of Justice and Public Safety), which was first noticed by Twitter consumer Necro Felipe, now consists of the Nintendo handheld as one of many consoles it’s playable on.
The information comes as a shock to followers given the lukewarm reception the unique sport obtained again in August, with many saying it was a barebones port with efficiency points that was lacking content material. Chief among the many complaints was its lack of multiplayer, graphical downgrade, and its wrestle to run at 60 frames per second. These shortcomings have been additional accentuated by the truth that Rockstar Video games’ port of the 13-year-old sport had a full $50 price ticket for the Swap. Given the Swap’s current wrestle to run NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat 1, it’s comprehensible that followers are feeling a bit nervous about how poorly RDR2, which is larger and longer than the unique sport, may play on the Swap.
Kotaku reached out to Rockstar Video games for remark.
Ought to the itemizing be true, chances are high Rockstar Video games might formally announce the Crimson Lifeless Redemption 2 port by the top of October to coincide with its fifth anniversary (the sport launched on October 26, 2018). Online game corporations are inclined to mark these sorts of events with some type of massive bulletins involving merch and new sport information, so it’s not fully exterior of the realm of risk right here.
However Rockstar Video games has not formally introduced RDR2’s launch on the Swap, simply but, although the official Brazilian MSRB score board listings have scooped sport bulletins prior to now. The truth is, in 2022, the exact same rankings board was the place the world first realized that Remaining Fantasy XVI could be the collection’ first rated M title for its depiction of sexual themes, nudity, and hate crimes.
Time will inform whether or not the Crimson Lifeless Redemption 2 port is an actual factor, and if it will likely be yet one more port whose gameplay efficiency received’t warrant the value tag.
