Borderlands 3 Nintendo Switch: A new rating listing confirms that Borderlands 3 and its DLC are coming to Nintendo’s hybrid gaming system. According to rumors, Borderlands 3 may be coming to Switch. Although there have been rumors of a Borderlands 3 version, some players will be thrilled to hear this.
The Switch version of Borderlands 3 wouldn’t be a series first. The Borderlands Legendary Collection, which included Borderlands: The Prequel and Borderlands 2, was initially released for Nintendo consoles. Although playable on a cartridge, that package required a substantial download and installation, as is typical for larger Switch games that publishers convert in order to avoid having to pay more for larger cartridges.
There is now renewed interest in PEGI, the European organization that leaked the Blizzard Arcade Collection. On listings for Borderlands 3 Director’s Cut and Designer’s Cut, as well as individual DLC: Borderlands: Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck, Borderlands 3: Bounty of Blood, Borderlands 3: Guns, Love, and Tentacles, and Borderlands 3: Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot, the organization today made a passing mention of a Nintendo Switch version.
Borderlands 3 Nintendo Switch Release
The Nintendo Switch version of Borderlands 3 was initially expected to launch in April 2021. April’s entry was taken down after it was inadvertently published on the PEGI website. The game wasn’t intended for the platform, according to 2K Games. All references to a Nintendo Switch version as of today’s date have vanished.
To take advantage of more powerful hardware, like Hitman 3 and Kingdom Hearts, Borderlands 3 may launch as a Cloud-only edition. Cloud-based versions are common in Japan, where the internet is reliable. However, publishers have continued to try despite North America’s subpar infrastructure, as 2K Games discovered with Borderlands 3 on Stadia. Resident Evil Village and other video games will be streamed by Capcom on the Switch.
Powerful hardware and online play in Borderlands 3 aren’t among the Switch’s strong points, but it would be nice to see another installment of a well-known game arrive on Nintendo’s platform and support for cheap online play. Borderlands 3 can still be made available on the Switch. Everyone benefits from options.
Borderlands 3 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. A Switch release is pending.
