One of the best narrative games is officially coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Good news, Telltale Games fans!
As revealed on Nintendo Direct 2.18.21, critically-acclaimed and award-winning narrative adventure game Tales from The Borderlands is coming to Switch on March 24.
Tales from The Borderlands was recently re-released on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S). Via 2K:
Originally released as a series of five episodes between November 2014 and October 2015, Tales from the Borderlands is a choice-driven narrative adventure game that takes place between the events of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands 3. Experience this beloved story from the perspectives of two protagonists, thrown together in an unlikely partnership as they try to recover a mountain of money that each believes is theirs.
Fiona is a full-time con-artist who has been scheming to make a fortune selling a fake Vault Key. Rhys—who you might know from Borderlands 3 as the Atlas Corporation CEO—is an ambitious Hyperion employee who idolizes the recently deceased Handsome Jack and is in the market for a Vault Key.
The deal they strike goes bad in ways that could only happen in the Borderlands, wreaking all kinds of mayhem. How the rest of the story plays out is up to you, as you make choices during explosive action scenes and conversations with familiar characters like Moxxi, Zer0, Marcus, and Claptrap.
Tales from the Borderlands is a crucial chapter in Borderlands canon, so if you haven’t yet experienced its chaotic, emotional journey, now’s the perfect time. This re-release includes all five of the original episodes in one package:
- Episode 1 – Zer0 Sum
- Episode 2 – Atlas Mugged
- Episode 3 – Catch a Ride
- Episode 4 – Escape Plan Bravo
- Episode 5 – The Vault of the Traveler
Though episodes won’t be available for purchase individually, you also won’t need to wait for each subsequent episode to release, and if you have an existing save file, you can pick up where you left off on the same platform. Note that cross-generation save transfers within the same console family are supported for the new Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles.
