This past weekend saw several new releases including a few huge collections hitting the Switch with three of them hitting a Nintendo system for the first time. Those three include Borderlands Legendary Collection, Bioshock: The Collection, and XCOM 2 Collection, all of which launched on May 29th. Borderlands Legendary Collection is the first three games in the Borderlands series: Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Ultimate Edition, with all three games containing their DLC campaigns as well as their base campaigns. Bioshock: The Collection cointains Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite, each with all of their single-player add-on content.
Then there's the XCOM 2 Collection which contains XCOM 2, four DLC packs (Resistance Warrior Pack, Anarchy's Children, Alien Hunters, and Shen's Last Gift) and the War of the Chosen expansion. Finally, Xenoblade Chronicles:Definitive Edition lets you discover the origins of Shulk as he and his companions taken on a seemingly unstoppable menace using real-time combat and strategy as you journey across a massive world. If you're a fan of any of these four games and want to play them on the go, this is a good way to check them out.
Outside of collections we also have the next game in the Shantae series with Shantae and the Seven Sirens. This time around Shantae gains new Fusion Magic abilities while exploring a vast sunken city and taking on the titular Seven Sirens. Then there's Liberated, where you have to use your wits, hack the system, sneak around, and solve puzzles in a noir cyberpunk story. Liberated will be available on June 2nd but you can check out the demo now on the eShop.
