You know, I often knock the Nintendo Switch for its poor visuals. I'm on record saying that the Steam Deck is the better Switch. So imagine my surprise hearing that Red Dead Redemption 2 is supposedly coming to the Switch. Like... what? One of the biggest open-worlds coupled with some of the best graphics gaming has to offer... coming to the... Switch? That should be impossible, and yet... there is a very real insider leak claiming otherwise.

Red Dead Redemption Coming to Nintendo Switch

First of all let me say this: If RDR 2 really does end up being released on the Nintendo Switch, then there is absolutely no more excuses for how terrible some Nintendo games look (I'm looking at you, Pokemon Arceus). The leak comes from industry insider and journalist Nacho Requena. In her live stream, Requena claimed that "there will be another game that has been available for some time on other platforms… it's been available for four years now."

Does that confirm Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to the Switch? Not at all. Not on its own. But when we consider that comicbook.com's Stephen Totilo reported that a Switch port of Red Dead Redemption 2 is actually in the works, and when we add the fact that Stephen correctly predicted the GTA Definitive Trilogy coming to the Switcch, then.... it does become quite the intriguing leak...
