Serious Sam Collection headed to Switch on November 17, new screenshots available

Step into the shoes of the legendary action hero Sam “Serious” Stone!

Experience one of the most explosive shooter game series of all time as you save the world from a merciless alien invasion. Visit the ruins of ancient Egypt and roam through the vivid arenas of South America fighting seemingly never-ending hordes of enemies using an extremely destructive arsenal including shotguns, heavy lasers, rocket launchers, a huge cannon and an iconic minigun.

Tired of playing alone? Go to war against Mental’s horde with up to 4 players in local co-op, blasting your way through the campaign or the stand-alone survival mode. Finally, put your skills to the test against other players in classic multiplayer modes including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and more.

Serious Sam Collection includes all content from Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, and Serious Sam 3: BFE, including “The Legend of the Beast” and “Jewel of the Nile” expansions.


I'm a big fan of this series, but only supporting local multiplayer is a bummer. Even the Xbox Live Arcade releases a decade ago supported online.

Those screenshots look good, as does the video on Nintendo's site. Okay, what's the catch? There's gonna be something wrong, I half expect it. Maybe poor framerate, but it looks fine to me from the video.

Considering we're talking about ports of games from the Xbox 360 (the HD versions of First and Second Encounter are a decade old now and Serious Sam 3 will be a decade old next year) I'd sincerely like to hope they have decent performance (at the very least there's no way SS3 on Switch could be anywhere near as bad as the PS3 port of that game, see Framerater's video on it for what I mean).
