Borderlands Legendary Collection

Until recently, the Borderlands series had never graced a Nintendo platform. That finally changed at the very end of May with Borderlands Legendary Collection. With that release, most of the franchise is now on Switch. Turn Me Up Games was heavily involved having worked on the ports of the first Borderlands as well as Borderlands 2.

We’ve caught up with Turn Me Up to discuss bringing these classic titles over to Nintendo’s console. Producer Louis Polak and executive producer Scott Cromie were able to share insight into its partnership with 2K and what it was like porting Borderlands 1 and 2 to Switch.

Here’s our full discussion:

The first three Borderlands games made it to Switch last month as part of the Borderlands Legendary Collection. Digital Foundry has now offered up a closer look at each title in its latest technical analysis.

The main highlights are as follows:

A trio of Borderlands games arrive on Switch tomorrow with the Borderlands Legendary Collection. We’ve included direct-feed footage of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel below.

New footage is in showing off how Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition look on Switch in handheld mode. Have a look at the video below.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition launches for Switch on May 29.

Today, 2K Games released new trailers that outline what content is available in the Borderlands Legendary Collection and BioShock: The Collection. Take a closer look with the videos below.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition isn’t the only notable release for Switch on May 29. 2K also has a trio of collections due out on the same day. BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands Legendary Collection, and XCOM 2 Collection are all dropping on May 29 as well. Even if you aren’t interested in any of them, they’re pretty notable since this is the first time we’re seeing these titles on a Nintendo platform.

So putting Xenoblade aside for a second, which one of these collections from 2K are you most interested in? Which releases will you be picking up on May 29 (or sometime down the road)? Let us know in the comments below.

2K has a number of big ports lined up for Switch next week. BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands Legendary Collection, and XCOM 2 Collection are all slated for May 29.

Back in March, 2K announced the ports in a Nintendo Direct Mini. The news was put together in a neat little video with the message that “2K ♡ Switch”. In an interview with Famitsu, 2K chief creative Sami Thessman spoke more about the campaign and Switch support.

2K made a few new announcements for Switch last week during the new Nintendo Direct Mini. New collections for BioShock, Borderlands, and XCOM 2 are all reaching the system in just a couple of months. It’s the first time that these titles will be appearing on a Nintendo console.

As you may know, 2K will be selling each collection both physically and digitally. But let’s say you’re only interested in BioShock 2. Or maybe you only care about the original Borderlands. If that’s the case, you’ll be happy to hear that all titles in the BioShock and Borderlands collections will be sold individually on the eShop, allowing you to pick and choose the titles you wish to purchase digitally. On top of that, you can also choose to buy BioShock: The Collection and Borderlands Legendary Collection as single packages. In other words, you can either buy any of the games individually or the full collections – whichever you prefer.

BioShock: The Collection and Borderlands Legendary Collection, along with XCOM 2 Collection, are slated for May 29.
