Following in the footsteps of Skyrim, 2k Games and developers Turn Me Up Games and Behaviour Interactive revealed Borderlands Legendary Collection for Switch.
While it was honestly inevitable that Borderlands 2 would end up on Switch, it was practically ported to every console and device since it originally released, but adding the original and The Pre-Sequel is a delightful addition.
But, don’t take our word for it, just check out the official overview:
Get three times the mayhem, three times the loot, and three times the action with the Borderlands Legendary Collection! Kill bandits and beasts, collect powerful weaponry, and maybe even save the universe in Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, along with piles of bonus add-on content for each game, adding 100+ hours of gameplay at an incredible value*.
Enjoy all three games solo or cooperatively with local two-player split-screen or four-player online play.

*Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary add-content not included.Nintendo’s Official Overview
For all the great things it adds, the most interesting omission is not the lack of Tales from the Borderlands, but rather, excluding the Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary DLC. While it wasn’t a particularly great or long expansion, it attempted to bridge the game between Borderlands 2 and the long awaited sequel. This might be a low-key confirmation that they’re not planning of porting Borderlands 3 to Switch or it might just be a space issue. But we will likely hear more as we get closer to the May 29 release.
