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.

Turn Me Up is one of the company’s involved with bringing Borderlands Legendary Collection to Switch. Over on the studio’s website, more information is revealed about the Switch ports.

Turn Me Up states that the team “worked tireless with 2K and Gearbox to bring these ravenously requested classics to Switch in full 1080p, at 30 FPS and with no downgrading of art assets.” It also “included all the trimmings of the GOTY releases” while also making motion controls just for the new Switch collection.

Borderlands Legendary Collection launches for Switch on May 29.

2K Games has readied new assets for Borderlands Legendary Collection on Switch. Find the game’s boxart above, and some screenshots plus a fact sheet below.

Gearbox Software have released a trailer for the new Hidden Realms update for Risk of Rain 2, launching for free today on Switch.

The trailer can be seen below.

Gearbox Publishing appears to be bringing Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour to Switch. That information is based on a new rating from the ESRB, which lists the classic shooter for Nintendo’s console.

Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour was previously rated in Australia. That classification, along with today’s ESRB rating, all but confirms an upcoming release on Nintendo’s console.

Here’s some information about Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour along with a trailer:

Leading up to PAX East 2019, rumors were abound that Gearbox could be putting Borderlands on Switch. That didn’t happen in the end, though Switch owners weren’t left entirely empty handed. Gearbox Publishing announced that it’s bringing Bulletstorm to Switch later this year.

It looks like there won’t be anything relating to Borderlands on Switch in the immediate future, but perhaps there’s a possibility of the series appearing sometime down the road. Randy Pitchford, president and CEO of Gearbox Software, told one fan on Twitter that he’d “love to see” the series on Nintendo’s console. It may not be any sort of confirmation, but leaves a bit of hope for the future.

Over the past few days, Gearbox has been sharing images on Twitter that tease upcoming announcements for PAX East 2019. Another one was published today, and it’s one that Nintendo fans could be interested in.

Gearbox’s latest tease is a pixelated screenshot from a mystery game. The thing is, it’s not actually that mysterious. Fans quickly determined that it’s an already-released screenshot from the action-RPG first-person shooter Borderlands 2.

Here’s a look at the pixelated image:

Burnstar is out now on the Switch eShop in North America, and will follow in Europe on July 12. Watch the official launch trailer below.

Over on Glixel, there’s a pretty massive interview with Gearbox Software president and CEO Randy Pitchford. One portion of the discussion went over Pitchford’s recent comments about Switch.

Pitchford said last week that he doesn’t see Borderlands 3 happening on Switch. Communications with Nintendo had been taking place, but stopped for unknown reasons.

Now Pitchford has elaborated on that and much more in Glixel’s interview. He had plenty of praise for Switch, and did also say that “there might be some scenarios where if the Switch becomes a place where there’s a huge number of customers, and it doesn’t compromise the experience that we’re making – there could be a scenario where us or Take-Two and 2K decide to take the effort to make it happen.”

Read up on Pitchford’s full comments below.

CEO of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford says that he doesn’t see a Switch version of Borderlands 3 happening, according to a recent tweet.

Gearbox is behind the Borderland series of games, known for it’s focus on co-op gameplay. While Pitchford did mention that Gearbox was in talks with Nintendo previously, it appears that said talks have fallen through. You can find the full tweet below.
