BioShock Switch Ports Surface on Taiwanese Ratings Board Site

BioShock Switch Ports Surface on Taiwanese Ratings Board Site

Big Daddy, meet tiny console.

It looks like a trip to Rapture (or Columbia, if you're so inclined) may be in the cards for Nintendo Switch owners soon. The website for Game Software Rating Regulations, the official video game content rating board of Taiwan, lists remastered versions of BioShock and BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition, and BioShock: The Collection as destined for the Switch.

The new listings, spotted by LootPots.com, seem to indicate that 2K Games will release 2016's BioShock: The Collection for the Switch in the near future. USgamer has reached out to 2K about the listings and will update this piece if we receive a response.

BioShock: The Collection includes all three BioShock games plus their downloadable content, including BioShock 2's acclaimed Minerva's Den expansion and Infinite's pre-fall of Rapture story, Burial at Sea. The only component missing from the bundle is BioShock 2's multiplayer mode. On the PS4 and Xbox One, the individual games in BioShock: The Collection can't be purchased separately, but they are available in a piecemeal fashion on PC.

Last month, 2K announced that a new BioShock game is in development at Cloud Chamber. Led by Kelley Gilmore, a former executive producer and director of marketing for Firaxis, the team at Cloud Chamber does include a few BioShock series veterans. Details on the title are sparse, and 2K says that it will be "several years" before the next installment comes to market.

A Switch port of the BioShock games would mark the series' first appearance on a Nintendo platform. Perhaps a Big Daddy will barge its way into the first Nintendo Direct of 2020?
