Complete BioShock collection
All three BioShock games including BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition will be available to Nintendo Switch players in May. All downloadable content packs for the games will also be included such as the Burial at Sea expansion and the Minerva’s Den storyline.
BioShock is a first-person-shooter developed by 2K Boston. The game is widely praised upon its release due to its morality-based storyline, immersive gameplay, and unique setting.
Borderlands Legacy collection and more downloadable content
The Borderlands Legacy collection will include Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. All of the downloadable and add on content are included on the Switch port.
Borderlands was released by 2K Games as a first-person-shooter role-playing-game and received positive feedback upon release. The title went on to sell over two million units by 2009 and spawned several downloadable content packs.
More games set for release this year
Aside from Borderlands and BioShock, there are new titles that will arrive on the Switch in the next few months.
Nintendo noted that Burnout Paradise Remastered, King’s Bounty 2, and Fuser are set for release this year, while Catherine: Full Body is set for launch on July 7.
The action-adventure game Saints Row 4: Re-Elected will arrive on March 27. The game was first launched in 2013 and was developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver.
Trials of Mana will arrive on April 24 while The Elder Scrolls: Blades and Minecraft Dungeons are slated for release sometime in the spring of 2020.
Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is coming in May while MR. DRILLER DrillLand and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 are coming this June.
Nintendo is reportedly enjoying brisk sales of the Nintendo Switch because more people are staying home and playing games due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
