    Nintendo Switch users may soon get the chance to experience a series of highly regarded games, in the form of BioShock: The Collection, which has just been rated for release on the platform. Found via the Taiwanese video game ratings board were filings for Nintendo Switch ports of BioShock 1 and 2 Remastered, as well as BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition. Considering the track record of Taiwan's ratings board, an official announcement is almost certain to follow soon, with more details. Previously, BioShock: The Collection released in 2016, for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and features visual enhancements to the original games.

    Probably Remastered will be added to title of one game, when Collection will include all BioShock games.

    if this is 100% confirmed this might have been one of the 12 SKU's that gamestop had in their database.

    Rather depends on the team one would think, these games originated in the PS3/Xbox 360 era in their original form (not remastered). The switch is quite a bit more capable than either of those systems.
    And we are still talking about games, in the remastered form, which are going on for four years old and didn’t tax either the base PS4, or Xbox One S by any stretch of the imagination. So with care and dedication, something I’m unfortunately not entirely certain we’ll get from 2K, there’s possibilities.

    If they’d put the development in the hands of a team like Panic Button, this could be a more than acceptable port. One need only look at what they achieved with Wolfenstein 2, a game considerably more demanding than the BioShock games.

    It will likely be ported by some random studio simply cause 2K are a bunch of cheapskates

    That I can easily believe unfortunately, but until we get to see them, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

    I really enjoy these ports, cause now I can I try them on the go, instead of having to find time in long gaming sessions
