BioShock Nintendo Switch Collection Announced

Outlined in today's Nintendo Direct Mini, the BioShock trilogy will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. The Switch version will have remastered versions of BioShock and BioShock 2, and the complete edition of BioShock Infinite.

BioShock, a spiritual successor to the PC classic System Shock, is a first person action adventure game series. In BioShock you play as a Jack. You explore the underwater city of Rapture, a utopia that has fallen into disarray. The first two games use art deco and philosophy as major motifs as it explores class struggle and the nature of humanity.

BioShock Infinite uses similar themes and features explorations of philosophy, though the game's story is not directly related to the first two. You play as Booker DeWitt, a detective in 1918 as you explore class and race conflicts in the floating city of Columbia.

BioShock Collection releases May 29 for Nintendo Switch.
