Claptrap — start bootup sequence… Borderlands Legendary Collection is now coming to the Nintendo Switch.
It’s official 2K Games – a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive – loves the Nintendo Switch! They’ve released several games for the platform, and now they’re bringing their biggest hitter – the Borderlands series. In the past, we’ve received their annual releases of NBA and Civilization VI but it seems they’re wanting to expand their catalogue of games available on the beloved hybrid system. Alongside 2k’s announcement that the Borderlands Legendary Collection is coming to the Nintendo Switch, they also revealed that the XCOM 2 Collection and Bioshock Collection are Nintendo Switch inbound.
The Borderlands Legendary Collection includes Borderlands 1, 2, and the Pre-sequel. Borderlands 2 is my personal favorite! If you haven’t played any of these games, now is the perfect time to pick them up, and if you have and you’re like me, it might even be worth purchasing them again. The ability to play this series on the go is going to do this collection wonders! Unfortunately, if you were hoping it’d include the recently released Borderlands 3, it doesn’t. That being said, the prior games are all of the greatest quality and are what defined the looter shooter genre.
If you aren’t too familiar with the Borderlands series, here’s an overview of the Borderlands Legendary Collection:
Get three times the mayhem, three times the loot and three times the action with the Borderlands Legendary Collection on the Nintendo Switch, which contains:
- Borderlands®: Game of the Year Edition: The co-op shooter-looter that started it all, crammed with content and enhancements. Equip bazillions of guns as one of four trigger-happy mercenaries, each with unique RPG skills. Take on the lawless desolate planet Pandora in pursuit of powerful alien technology: The Vault
- Borderlands® 2: Play as one of six Vault Hunters attempting to liberate Pandora from evil mastermind and corporate CEO Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in a relentless quest for revenge and redemption
- Borderlands®: The Pre-Sequel: Play as six all-new character classes while carving a path of destructive mayhem across Pandora’s never-before-seen low-gravity moonscapes with all new moves, weapons, and vehicles! Fight alongside future megalomaniacal tyrant Handsome Jack, while preventing the destruction of Pandora and its moon
