Get ready to play your favorite 2K games on the go. Bioshock: The Collection, Borderlands: Legendary Collection, and XCOM 2 Collection are coming to the Nintendo Switch on May 29.
The announcement came in today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, which also featured announcements like the date for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and the return of the DS classic Club House Games.
Bioshock: The Collection comes with Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite. Return to the depths of Rapture and the heights of Columbia to take on menacing foes or experience the exhilarating story for the first time.
Borderlands: Legacy Collection includes Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The remastered set of Borderlands games also come with additional DLC and content, except for the newest Borderlands 2 DLC Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary.
XCOM 2 Collection brings the complete XCOM experience, with the main game as well as the War of the Chosen expansion. The collection also includes extra DLC content, including the Resistance Warrior, Anarchy’s Children, and Alien Hunters packs.
Each of these games has been available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but having the option to take them out and about on the Switch is a serious plus. Along with that, each of the three collections can cater to a different kind of player, no matter what they are into.
New Collections Will Require Additional Downloads on Switch
Having all these collections on the Switch does come with some drawbacks. Each of the collections will require some form of additional download, so you will probably need a decent-sized MicroSD card as well.
Bioshock: The Collection, Borderlands: Legendary Collection and XCOM 2 Collection are currently available to pre-order now on Amazon, and are priced at $49.99 each. Given the amount of game included in each of the collections, they are definitely worth the price.
