Gearbox is potentially teasing a Switch version of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition - Gearbox - Nintendo Switch

All eyes are on Gearbox with PAX rapidly approaching at the end of this month. Now, the developer/publisher is tantalizing the crowds with another juicy tease in advance of the expo. The studio managed to arouse suspicion that we’ll be treated to a Switch version of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition. Here was the clue.

So, you might be wondering where in the world did you get Nintendo Switch in all of that? Well, this popular screenshot features Ishi Sato and the infamous Duke Nukem. Duke was an addition for the Full Clip Edition that came to Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The characters in Gearbox’s tweet are reversed from the original photo as can be seen below. This is where many assume the “switch” tease comes into play.

A packed show?

Gearbox is expected to announce Borderlands 3 at PAX alongside a handful of other surprises. While Borderlands 3 might not make an appearance on the Nintendo Switch, there’s plenty of room to believe Borderlands 2 will. As previously reported, Gearbox hinted at another version of Borderlands 2 on Twitter last week. A Nintendo Switch version only seems obvious as all the other major players in the video game industry have the game on their platform.

I, for one, am thrilled at the prospect of having Borderlands 2 on my Nintendo Switch. I’ve already purchased the game 3 times and will do so yet again for the portability of the Switch. Just prior to the tease, I actually discussed the reasons why a Switch port of the first three Borderlands games only made sense — even from a commercial perspective. However, we are just over a week away from the expo. So, only time will tell — officially.

What do you think of the potential Bulletstorm and Borderlands ports on the Nintendo Switch? Are there any other ports you’d like to see on the hybrid console? Let us know in the comments section below!
