Update [Tue 23rd Aug, 2022 19:45 BST]: Gearbox has officially confirmed New Tales from the Borderlands for Switch (and other platforms) with the above trailer at Gamescom 2022.

Bringing back people from the now-defunct Telltale Games who developed the first Tales from the Borderlands game, it's launching on 21st October.

THE UNDERDOG STORY OF THREE LOVABLE LOSERS - Decide the fates of altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious, "streetwise" brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran. With nothing left to lose and everything to gain, you'll claw and con your way through this thrilling five-part story;
AN EXTRAORDINARY CINEMATIC ADVENTURE - The Borderlands aren't just home to Vault Hunters, psychos, and weapons-corp CEOs; they're full of downtrodden, intrepid civilians just trying to get by. With a host of returning and fresh faces, this unforgettable tale is sure to delight fans new and old;
YOUR CHOICES SHAPE THE OUTCOME - The decisions you make determine how your story ends in unexpected ways. Whether it's Anu's vision of a universe that markets more than weapons, Octavio's dreams of fame and fortune, or Fran's frosty plot for revenge, their success or failure depends on you.

Original Story [Thu 18th Aug, 2022 03:55 BST]: Back in April, Gearbox Software announced it would be reviving Tales from the Borderlands with a brand new entry.

Now, in the latest development, there's been a leak via Amazon - seemingly confirming the title, release date, and a Nintendo Switch version. There was also a box art reveal contained within the now-removed links:

This new entry will supposedly be titled 'New Tales from the Borderlands' and is scheduled to arrive in the second half of October. Apart from a Nintendo release, the game is also coming to PlayStation, Xbox and PC.

The game will include both new and returning characters, and is once again driven by the player's decision-making. Here's the story (via Gematsu):

Take a stand against ruthless corporate overlords in this narrative-driven adventure! Within the perpetually war-torn metropolis of Promethea, you’ll control Anu, Octavio, and Fran on the worst day of their lives. Help these three lovable losers as they endeavor to change the world (and maybe even save it)! Face down a planetary invasion, vicious vault monster, and cold-hearted capitalist in this cinematic thrill ride where what happens next is up to you! Meet a motley cast full of misfits, assassin bots, and talking guns in this race to the top! It’s time to fight back against exploitation and corporate greed. It’s time to make Mayhem your business.

This next outing appears to be developed by Gearbox (the same team behind the main games and most recently Tiny Tina's Wonderlands), whereas the original game - released on Switch last year - was handled by Telltale.
