Gearbox Software have announced that Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition will be coming to Nintendo Switch. It may be an eight-year-old game but this edition was remastered for current-gen consoles and PC in 2017, offering prettier graphics.

Nintendo Switch's roster will be expanded by an over-the-top shooter Bulletstorm that doesn't take itself too seriously as it is essentially a game where players are simply encouraged to kill enemies in the most creative ways. For example, kicking them into a giant cactus will yield a pile of points.

The game was initially released in 2011 and then remastered in 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Gearbox are looking to sell the game once again now, with Nintendo's handheld platform in mind. Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition included all previous DLC and this will be the case with Switch as well.

Dubbed Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch, it will feature Duke Nukem who fits rather well in the testosterone-filled shooter along with his '90s sense of humour. Gearbox didn't just slap a Duke skin on another character though, as they gave him his own dialogue during cutscenes.

The other characters still speak as if players assumed the role of Grayson but Duke's humour and over-the-top one-liners serve as a great comic relief and an endless source of juvenile fun. Let's face it, we all love to indulge from time to time.

While no exact official release date was given, Duke of Switch will come at some point during summer 2019 and Switch players will be able to chew bubblegum and kick ass, provided they have any bubblegum. Otherwise, they will just be relegated to doing the latter.

For those unacquainted, Bulletstorm is basically a mash-up of Gears of War and Borderlands that fans really liked, but it probably never sold enough to warrant a sequel. Eight year after the original release, there is no sequel but Gearbox did state that it is possible one will come up eventually.
