Red Dead Redemption 2 Data Miner Finds Nintendo Switch Controller Image In Game’s Files

There is no doubt that Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the best open world games out there. The 2018 Game of the Year Nominee not only raised the bar for open world games in general, but also managed to surprise many with its story, game details, and accuracy.

The game recently released for PC, having previously only been available for PS4 and Xbox One owners. Although the game unsurprisingly performs much better on PC than on consoles, this of course allows modders to add various mods into it, as well as give data miners the opportunity to dig through files and uncover hidden resources. As it turns out, one data miner found something interesting that, of all things, actually pertains to the Nintendo Switch.

Specifically, a Twitter user by the name of TezFunz2 posted a picture of a Nintendo Switch Pro controller, saying that there is a texture within the coding of the game for the controller. At first, the Twitter post itself looks like an empty photo with nothing to show for it. However, upon clicking the photo, a transparent image of the controller will show up.

As interesting as this one-of-a-kind discovery might be, there are a few possibilities. The first and the most obvious one is that Rockstar may be planning to release Red Dead Redemption 2 for the Nintendo Switch. As requested as that may be, it is highly unlikely considering the fact that the Nintendo Switch is not as powerful as the PS4 or Xbox One (but then again, Nintendo’s console does have The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt). Second, it may be possible that Rockstar is planning to bring Nintendo Switch Pro controller support to the PC version in the future.

In all honesty, the second option seems to be more plausible, especially since it’s possible to hook up a Nintendo Switch Pro controller to a PC and Steam. Even if the game did release for the Nintendo Switch, it would not look as polished or as crisp as it does on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, nothing official as been announced yet — will 2020 be the year we see Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Switch?
