Irrational Games

BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite found their way to Switch last week. Digital Foundry has examined all three in greater detail from a technical perspective, and it looks like Virtuos / Blind Squirrel churned out fine ports for each.

Here’s a rundown of the main points:

Bioshock 2 is getting its first crack at a Nintendo platform with its Switch release tomorrow. See how the game stacks up with the original Xbox 360 release below.

After footage previously surfaced showing BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition running on Switch in portable mode, some docked gameplay has since emerged. View around two hours of footage in the video below.

BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition will be hitting Switch on May 29, along with the first BioShock and BioShock 2.

Rounding out today’s handheld footage of the BioShock games, we now have a look at BioShock 2 Remastered as well. Get a look at the gameplay below.

Switch is getting the full BioShock series in just a couple of days. The eShop listings for all three games have updated, revealing additional information.

BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition will cost $19.99 each. File sizes are 12.5GB, 10.4GB, and 20.7GB respectively.

By purchasing BioShock: The Collection, you can receive all three games for $49.99. This will have a physical release, though there’s a pretty big mandatory download, and not all content is included on the cartridge.

Borderlands Legendary Collection and BioShock: The Collection launch on Switch May 29.

2K has several ports planned for release on Switch this month, including BioShock: The Collection. A physical version is planned, but you won’t be getting everything on the cartridge. 2K’s store mentions that there will be a download of at least 31GB.

BioShock: The Collection should come on a 16GB cartridge. It includes the opening acts of BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition. The extra download involves later game contents and add-ons.

Switch owners can get their hands on BioShock: The Collection starting May 29.

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.

The acclaimed BioShock series has never appeared on a Nintendo platform, but that could be changing in the near future. A rating for the package has popped up in Taiwan.

BioShock: The Collection includes BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite. Players can also access all single-player add-on content, the “Columbia’s Finest” pack, and director’s commentary with developers Ken Levine and Shawn Robertson.

Here’s an overview of BioShock: The Collection, along with a trailer:
