Volition's cult hit Red Faction Guerrilla is being reborn once more for Nintendo Switch owners with the debut of Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Edition, as it lands on the system this July.
If you're more interested in playing the game on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC, it's out now on those platforms. But if you're looking to jump into it on Nintendo Switch, you'll just have to wait around for later this summer.
The Re-Mars-tered Edition packs plenty of improvements into one package with this re-release, including the following:
- Choice between Performance and Quality Mode
- Fully reworked graphics – heavily reworked textures and graphic features adding, for example, specular maps
- Improved shadow rendering
- Improved lighting
- Reworked shaders and postprocessing
- Optional Motion Controls for a better sense of aiming while playing in handheld mode
The third game in the Red Faction series is all about taking the fight to Mars with destructible environments, plenty of structures to basically terrorize and knock down, and other action-packed sequences you'll love playing through with your favorite handheld that isn't a new DS, unfortunately (we seriously do want one).
If you ask us, the Switch, like most games, is the best place to experience this remaster, especially if you've been looking to beef up your library a bit more. There's plenty to love about it, and you can finally give it the attention it deserved when it launched.
You can pick up the new Switch version when it lands on July 2 for $29.99. That's just in time to celebrate Independence Day by exercising your right to blow things up on Mars! You want to do that, don't you? Of course you do.

Hit reply, start typing
I can’t wait to see the trailer, but there’s no way they can use both the Nintendo Switch “click” opener and Chris Remo’s “Space Asshole” in the same-
Holy shit they did it. Remo’s “Space Asshole” on a Nintendo trailer. Like, I know they used it on the PC version but... wow. Awesome.
Also, I’ve got that shit on vinyl. Seriously. You can too:
At least, I assume they’ll still take your order and fulfill it.
Haha :) awesome.
Chris Remo did some tracks for Chatty that I can't find anywhere - I remember he did "When I Was My Car" for sure, maybe something else? Anybody got links?
I happened to remember the “Escape Goat” song he did based on someone’s typo and before it was an indie game title
That account doesn’t have “when I was my car” but it does have the “microtransactions theme song” from that Played podcast he did with warcrow and dahanese prior to Idle Thumbs (the podcast)
I guess the song I'm after did not survive the site redesign - the old link does not work: http://www.shacknews.com/extras/remo/chrisremo_iwasmycar.mp3
Hey Asif, do you know if Remo's folder has been archived somewhere? Apparently the link still worked in 2017.
The lack of "Space Asshole" at those video game music concerts is such a shame :(
