1. In a surprise Nintendo Direct, dubbed a ‘Direct Mini’ today, Nintendo announced Bioshock will get a full release on it’s Nintendo Switch console in the coming months.

The Bioshock series is one of the 2K’s best selling and most popular games. However, it’s previously only been available on other consoles, eluding the Nintendo Switch so far.

But Switch players won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on the Bioshock experience.

Nintendo has announced that all three instalments of the Bioshock series will drop for the Switch on May 29.

In addition, you’ll also be able to get all three games in one nice collector’s edition. This will be a nice touch for those who like to collect their games through the years.

The surprise Nintendo Direct came with a whole raft of exciting announcements for the Nintendo Switch.

As well as Bioshock coming along, the likes of the XCOM 2 collection and Borderlands will also be added by 2K to the Nintendo Switch gaming library.

These games are some of the most successful of the past decade. It makes sense, then, for Nintendo to get them up and running on the Switch given the console’s success.

Over a decade of Bioshock comes to Nintendo

The Bioshock series has been around longer than most people think. The initial game launched way back in 2007, meaning it’s been hitting shelves for over a decade now.

Bioshock has won countless Game of the Year awards and critical acclaim along the way.

While billed as a first-person shooter, Bioshock is so much more than just that. The story, score, and all-round gameplay of the title make it stand out from the crowd.

Nintendo are making a wise move adding a title like Bioshock to their library. Fans will be eager to get their hands on one of the most well-received games of all times.

Today’s Nintendo Direct had plenty of nice nuggets in there. But the reveal about Bioshock coming to Switch was one of the standout announcements.
