It was announced at this year’s Gamescom event in Germany that Saint’s Row: The Third is heading to the Nintendo Switch. Originally released on November 15, 2011, the game will make its Switch debut eight years later as Deep Silver Fishlabs touted a 2019 release window but didn’t exactly state when in 2019 the game will be ported over.
A tweet was sent out by Deep Silver UK with the announcement which can be viewed below:

The plot of Saint’s Row: The Third is described as follows:
Five years after the events of Saints Row 2, the 3rd Street Saints have merged with the Ultor Corporation to become a media and consumer empire, with assets that include an energy drink, a lifestyle brand, and a chain of clothing stores. While robbing a bank to promote the upcoming Saints Row: The Movie, the Boss and top lieutenants Shaundi and Johnny Gat experience unanticipated resistance from the staff and are arrested by corrupt policemen. They are turned over to Phillipe Loren, the mastermind behind an international criminal enterprise known as the “Syndicate”, who wishes to make a deal with them, seeing the Saints as a threat. The Saints refuse and stage a breakout, with Gat seemingly sacrificing himself to allow Shaundi and the Boss to escape.
