‘BioShock: The Collection’ Rated for Nintendo Switch
- Rating comes from the Taiwanese Game Ratings Board.
- Rated as a bundle, and each game separately.
- 2K recently created a new BioShock studio.
It’s that time of year, where us overfed-yet-still-starving Nintendo fans expect a Nintendo Direct announcement. It’s usually leaks and games being rated that fuels this desire for more game announcements. Well, we seem to have four new titles rated for Nintendo Switch… well, three and one collection. Discovered by Lootpots, the Taiwanese Game Ratings Board has rated BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition, and BioShock: The Collection.
Now, I would recommend we keep our excitement at a reasonable level, because this is no way a confirmation. This could be an error; this could be, well, actually, never mind. I’m excited! We’re going to be able to play BioShock on the go! This will make up for the PS Vita entry we were promised, but never got. The three ratings seem to indicate that you’ll be able to pick up all the titles physically via the BioShock: The Collection product rating. The separate ratings for each title will more than likely be for purchasing them separately on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
The BioShock: The Collection originally released back in 2016 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. This remaster brought quality of life updates, and took advantage of the new hardware it was essentially being ported to. This collection brings the entire BioShock trilogy, as well as all of the downloadable content released for each entry. What makes this leak even more interesting is that 2K announced a new BioShock was in development from their new studio in charge of the franchise, Cloud Chamber. When discussing the new studio, Kelley Gilmore has the following to say:
“We founded Cloud Chamber to create yet-to-be-discovered worlds – and their stories within – that push the boundaries of what is possible in the video game medium. Our team believes in the beauty and strength of diversity, in both the makeup of the studio and the nature of its thinking. We are a deeply experienced group of game makers, including many responsible for BioShock’s principal creation, advancement and longstanding notoriety, and honored to be part of the 2K family as stewards of this iconic franchise.”
The rumors of a Nintendo Direct, not counting the recent Pokémon one or the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate one, are only going to intensify. With GameStop having their inventory of 12 secret Nintendo Switch games leaked, and Metro Redux having its rating leaked, it’s only a matter of time. What would you like to see from the Direct? Are you excited for BioShock coming to Switch? To stay up to date on Bioshock’s future, make sure to follow 2K on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and their official website.
