Grand Theft Auto 3 now runs on Switch consoles but unofficially!

Back in 2017, Rockstar Games brought its popular L.A. Noire title to the Nintendo Switch consoles with the help of Virtuos. Since the launch of the title, Switch owners were expecting more Rockstar titles to come to the handheld console. Well, it looks like the game developing company completely forgot about the Switch and moved on. For the last three years, we haven’t seen a single new title from the company for Switch hybrid consoles.
