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:

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Oni Dino finally gets his hands on a copy of Ring Fit and realizes he’s super out of shape. Galen eschews social distancing and parties with Jackbox. The gang covers news from rumors to controversies. Oni Dino vividly remembers the cheat code for Lara’s Bum in Tomb Raider II. (Psst… Lara Croft for Smash) Deadly Premonition 2 challenges what a video game is and neither critics nor consumers are in agreement about anything. Galen brings up comparisons of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. And the big discussion is on the Nintendo Treehouse live stream, Bakugan, and how the hype machine bit itself in the butt.

It’s been a confusing week or so for Crysis Remastered. The game’s first trailer and release date leaked, but before Crytek would acknowledge anything, it decided to push the launch back for extra polish. While Switch was supposed to be included in that delay, it seems the platform won’t be impacted after all.

In a short announcement on social media, Crytek said that Crysis Remastered will still launch on July 23 – the original leaked date. The developer didn’t clarify if the game will be touched up at all from the initial trailer that was shown.

We know that some changes were made for Pokemon names, but it looks like there were some outlandish suggestions to go further beyond that.

It turns out that a redesign was proposed for the creature that involved “something like a tiger with huge breasts.” That’s according to Tsunekazu Ishihara, the CEO of The Pokemon Company.

The full quote from Ishihara is as follows:
