A bunch of 2K games are coming to Switch on May 29 including XCOM 2, Borderlands 2, and BioShock Infinite.

The news is part of the surprise Nintendo Direct Mini that dropped earlier today confirming a number of ports that had previously been rumoured.

Here’s the full list of 2K games headed to the Nintendo platform:

  • XCOM 2 Collection: includes XCOM 2, 4 DLC packs, and the War of the Chosen expansion.

  • Borderlands Legendary Collection: includes Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

  • BioShock Remastered Collection: includes BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition.

Each of the games in the BioShock collection can also be purchased individually. It’s also the first time any of these series has appeared on a Nintendo console. Finally, Borderlands 2 gets to be on a handheld people actually play.

Update: 7:45 am AEDT: It turns out the physical versions of these games will come with some hefty downloads.

According to a press release from 2K Games BioShock: The Collection will come on a 16GB cartridge that only contains the “opening acts” of each of the three games with the rest needing to be downloaded. They don’t say just how big that download will be. On PS4 it’s about 60GB.

XCOM 2, meanwhile, comes on an 8GB cartridge that will only have the first two missions in the game installed. To get the rest you’ll need to download up to 24GB more.

Finally, the Borderlands Legendary Collection will require an additional 41.6GB download to fully play. For reference, the Switch only comes with 32GB of internal storage.
