DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Headed To Nintendo Switch

DOOM Wolfenstein II coming to Nintendo Switch Two unexpected shooters are coming to Nintendo Switch

DOOM is due out this holiday season for the Switch, while Wolfenstein 2 is due out next year. Thanks To publisher Bethesda.

Yesterday during a Nintendo Direct livestream, it was revealed that both Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are coming to the Nintendo Switch.

About a year ago, Bethesda launched Doom on the PS4 and Xbox One.

The Hybrid Console by Nintendo is getting two wonderful sweet new additions to its list of treats and an even sweeter for the console owners and fans.

Doom originally launched on PS4 and Xbox One in 2016 and perhaps was a bit unlucky to have launched in that year as it had to compete with some other wonderful shooters such as Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 amongst others. Players will be able to experience the game in virtual reality with the VR version of the game that will launch later this year along with Fallout 4 VR. The first-person shooter was developed by id Software and ran on the proprietary id Tech 6 game engine.

Wolfenstein II The New Order will hit the PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27th. Indeed, Bethesda will likely have to put in some time to make Doom and Wolfenstein compatible with the Switch's hardware, but given the console's popularity, that work could very well be worth it.

DOOM isn't the only Bethesda game that will be coming to Switch, as there are actually a few other releases that are on the horizon.

The DOOM Switch port will include all of the game's DLC and updates, except the SnapMap level editor. Many viewers were left wondering if the Switch version would cut any corners so it could be playable, and the answers are less than pleasing.
