Borderlands 3 announced for Switch alongside $150 bundle

Borderlands 3 is the latest mainline entry in the fun and frantic first-person looter shooter franchise. Originally released back in 2019, the game was added to pretty much every platform available (even Google Stadia) – every platform except for the Nintendo Switch. In a surprise announcement, Borderlands 3 and all its DLC will be coming to Nintendo’s aging platform next week.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the team at Gearbox said “Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition hits Nintendo Switch on October 6, with physical pre-orders available TODAY!”

Being the Ultimate Edition, this $60 release includes the base game alongside all of its post-launch DLC. The only limitation placed upon the Switch version seems to be the fact that both locally and online, the game only supports 2-player co-op (compared to 4 players on other platforms).

If that’s not enough Borderlands for you, PlayStation, Xbox and PC players can get their hands on the Borderlands Collection: Pandora’s Box, which includes the games:

  • Borderlands
  • Borderlands 2
  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
  • Tales from the Borderlands
  • Borderlands 3
  • New Tales from the Borderlands

This collection retails for a whopping $149.99, though there is currently a launch discount which reduces it all the way down to a much more reasonable $59.99. This price is further reduced if you own any of the games included in the bundle (though discounts vary by system).

With Borderlands 3 being a late PS4/Xbox One generation title, it will be interesting to see how the game both looks and plays on the Nintendo Switch. We won’t have to wait long to find out.
