Grand Theft Auto gets ported to Nintendo Switch – kind of

Grand Theft Auto may not have a presence on Nintendo Switch officially, but that hasn’t stopped modders from porting the game onto the system.

The game in question is Grand Theft Auto 3, which is somewhat of a classic of sorts, having released originally on the PlayStation 2 back in 2001.

YouTuber ‘eradicatinglove’ showcased how the game works on the console in an educational video.

Through the use of custom firmware and a GTA Switch zip file that is placed on an SD card, you can get the game to run on your Switch.

Grand Theft Auto fans can finally play on their Switch.

This is all thanks to the user Grabber on the gbatemp website. In a post titled “re3-nx: Reverse engineered GTA 3 for Nintendo Switch,” Grbber explains how the game runs and how the project came about.

“The re3 project is done by the people at GTAmodding/RockstarVision, a group of dedicated GTA modders,” the user explained.

Additionally, the game runs at 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 30fps. “You can turn off the frame limiter which should give nice high framerates,” Graber said. “You can rebind controls, configure audio, graphics, language, etc. Saves are stored on the userfiles folder.”

As you can see in the video, GTA 3 looks really well done in the Switch’s menu screen looking exactly like it belongs on the console.

Though the game has been ported to many platforms over the years including mobile phones, it still doesn’t have a release on the Switch. It’s unclear why Rockstar has neglected the console, but it’s not like the company doesn’t support the big N.

It was, after all, the Nintendo DS where Rockstar first launched their timed-exclusive GTA China Town Wars. Sadly, that was a long time ago and there haven’t been any new titles on Nintendo platforms since.

Hopefully, Rockstar ends up making some more official Switch ports in the future and maybe even brings Grand Theft Auto online to the mobile-home console hybrid.

Another Squad Building Challenge is live for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s Rulebreakers – this time for Anderson Talisca – and we’ve got the requirements, solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to unlock it.

FIFA 21’s Rulebreakers cards are introducing new ways to play with certain players. The latest edition to the Rulebreakers club is Anderson Talisca, the Brazilian CAM for Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao F.C.

Talisca has always been a relatively popular card in FIFA considering the league he plays in; many love the versatility of the Brazilian and all of the attacking prowess he possesses.

Normally an 82-rated CAM, Talisca’s base gold card gets a big upgrade to an 84-rated CAM. The Rulebreakers item has an impressive 87 pace with a 91 Acceleration. and given how important pace is in FIFA 21, this helps give him a huge edge over defenders.

The Brazilian also gets a slight increase in his shooting, passing, defense, and dribbling attributes, which should more than compensate for the slight hit to his physical attribute. As a CAM, thse offensive upgrades are certainly desirable.

Is this SBC worth doing?

Talisca’s Rulebreakers card is definitely good individually, but unfortunately, he plays in a region that isn’t commonplace in FUT. Still, he is Brazilian so he has some good chemistry links with popular players like Neymar Jr, and he’s also a CAM with a high pace attribute, which is always valuable.

Ultimately, this Rulebreaker card is very good, and probably worth investing in. You should be able to find uses for it and get some decent chemistry links with his Brazilian nationality.

You don’t have to make a decision right away; the SBC is around until Tuesday, November 3, so you have a week to decide if you think he’s worth the investment.
