The Serious Sam Collection AAAHHH’s Over To Switch On November 17

In a surprise announcement this morning, Devolver Digital revealed that the Serious Sam Collection would be heading to Switch very soon…like, next week soon. On November 17, 2020, Switch owners will be able to experience Serious Sam: The First Encounter, The Second Encounter, and 3: BFE from the comfort of their toilets and other fine porcelain seating arrangements they may have laying around.

Going for $29.99, an eShop page is currently live that really doesn’t give us much in the way of details. The compilation will take up 4.1 GB, apparently have a four-player local split-screen mode, and will be packed with the DLC for both Second Encounter and 3. It seems like a fairly robust package, but then the screenshots attached are generic PR shots from the PC release.

I may not be the biggest fan of Serious Sam 3, but the first two titles are all-time PC classics. In the past, the HD versions of those titles were ported to Xbox 360 and ran somewhat decently. I would imagine those two will be fine on Switch, though you can also reference The Talos Principle which suffered from stuttering and slowdown.

Without any real footage, I don’t know what to call this. We can only look to the past and Serious Sam doesn’t have the best track record on console hardware. It’s also very strange how the “leaked” PS4 and Xbox One versions of this collection are nowhere to be found, yet a Switch version is just days away. This one will definitely be a “your mileage will vary” situation, so proceed with caution.
