Borderlands 2 Possible for Switch?
The Nintendo Switch is off to a stellar start with several new IPs and great first party ports like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokken Tournament DX. The latest Nintendo Direct also revealed that Bethesda will be porting both DOOM and Wolfenstein 2 to the hybrid console.
Recently Gothalion, a popular Twitch Borderlands and Destiny streamer, tweeted at Randy Pitchford about the chance of Borderlands 2 on Switch.
Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford told Gothalion that if his tweet reached a million retweets they would port Borderlands 2. The tweet currently sits around 17,000 retweets and nowhere near its intended goal but it could a good barometer for interest in a Borderlands 2 port.
Borderlands 2 is ported on several consoles including the PS Vita. The Vita port did not sell particularly well and had several issues like frame rates and content. Borderlands 2 on Vita was an attempt to bring great third party games on the Sony handheld.
The Nintendo Switch however is a brand new and more powerful machine that delivers on the promise of console graphics on the go. As the Nintendo Switch drums up more third party support we might see all kinds of ports and other games in the near future.
