And you can buy a $399 robot to celebrate

The Borderlands series is finally going next-gen — and to celebrate, you can buy a remote controlled version of Claptrap, gaming's most obnoxious robot. Today 2K Games announced the new Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which will bundle Borderlands 2 and the recently launched Pre-Sequel, along with all of their DLC add-ons, into one package for PS4 and Xbox One. The whole thing will cost you $59.99, a pretty nice discount compared to buying everything individually.

The special edition is limited to 5,000 copies

But for the super fans, the new bundle is also available in a wonderfully ridiculous special edition that comes with a tiny version of Claptrap that can talk and drive around on one wheel, controlled by a smartphone app. The catch is that the special edition is limited to 5,000 copies, and costs a whopping $399. In order to grab one you'll need to pre-order the game at select retail stores.

The new versions of the games include improved performance and graphics, according to 2K, as well as a surprising new feature: four-player split-screen play, so you can do some shooting with buddies on the same TV. Otherwise the games appear to be largely the same as the originals, making this a great place to jump in for those new to the series. However, if you've already started playing one of the games on Xbox 360, PS3, or Vita, The Handsome Edition supports cross-save, so you can pick up where you left off on your new console, and don't have to worry about creating a new character from scratch.

The next-gen bundle is launching March 24th in North America, and March 27th elsewhere in the world.
