    Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford was asked via Twitter if there was any chance the Borderlands series would ever get a Nintendo Switch release. The CEO stated that he would "love" to see the series on the hybrid console. 

    While Pitchford wants to see the series release on the Switch, there has been no official announcement made.

    Here is an overview of Borderlands 3:

    The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters–the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, collect loads of loot, and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.

    What’s New:

    • A Mayhem-Fueled Thrill Ride: Stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power. Only you, a thrill-seeking Vault Hunter, have the arsenal and allies to take them down.
    • Your Vault Hunter, Your Playstyle: Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities and playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together, they are unstoppable.
      • Moze as The Gunner: When Moze needs backup, she digistructs her mech – Iron Bear – for a sucker punch of additional firepower.
      • Amara as The Siren: A confident, capable brawler with the ability to summon ethereal fists, Amara uses her Siren powers to smash her enemies.
      • FL4K as The Beastmaster: FL4K lives for the hunt. So do the loyal beasts that follow their master’s every command. Their preferred prey? Unsuspecting bandits, those poor suckers.
      • Zane as The Operative: Specializing in battlefield gadgetry, Zane is extremely proficient at slipping into combat, creating chaos, and sneaking back out as if he were never there.
    • Lock, Load, and Loot: With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.
    • New Borderlands: Discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments to explore and enemies to destroy. Tear through hostile deserts, battle your way across wartorn cityscapes, navigate deadly bayous, and more!
    • Quick & Seamless Co-Op Action: With a new level-sync system, the experience scales for each individual player. That means you can play with anyone at any time online or in split-screen coop, regardless of your level or mission progress. Take down enemies and challenges as a team, but reap rewards that are yours alone–no one misses out on loot.

    What’s Back and Better Than Ever (Franchise Features):

    • Bazillions of Guns: With multiple distinct weapons manufacturers, a revolutionary content generation system, and special legendary drops to uncover, your ever-improving arsenal comes with near-infinite possibilities.
    • RPG Progression: Slay your foes, gain experience points, and build out extensive skill trees unique to each of the four Vault Hunters.
    • Rich Universe: Uncover the rewarding mysteries, memorable inhabitants, and deep lore of the extensive Borderlands narrative universe.
    • Intense Vehicular Combat: Get behind the wheel and engage in frenetic vehicle-to-vehicle combat.
    • Radical Art Style: Traditional rendering techniques combined with hand-drawn textures give Borderlands its iconic style.

    Borderlands 3 will launch worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC via Epic Games Store on September 13.

    Nicalis, Inc. today announced that Redout, a high-velocity futuristic racing game, will release digitally on Nintendo Switch on May 14, 2019. Redout for Switch will release as the "Lightspeed Edition" including all extra gameplay-related downloadable content as a free bonus (a $40 value).

    Redout is set in the year 2560, after the construction of elaborate magnetic race tracks has transformed the barren wasteland of Earth into the epicenter of the galaxy’s most popular sport. Competitors can steer, drift, and pitch 28 different customizable vehicles as each successfully-maneuvered turn, slope, and twist applies a unique force that can be channeled into even greater forward velocity.

    With 11 event types and over 200 different total events, Redout's single-player Career Mode gives racers the opportunity to gain experience, level up, and upgrade their vehicles with power-ups like additional turbo, self-repair drones, advanced grip systems, and more. A variety of multiplayer race modes lets up to six players compete for online supremacy as the fastest times and top players are recorded on the global leaderboards.

    All of the high-speed action in Redout is accentuated with flying sparks, electrical arcs, and blazing exhaust, providing players with high levels of sensory-overloaded racing intensity. The highly optimized environments offer 60 evocative courses set in 12 futuristic locations, which include breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes, vast desert plains, and more.

    Developed by 34BigThings, Redout is rated "E for Everyone" by the ESRB and will be available as a digital download for Nintendo Switch on May 14 for $39.99 MSRP.
