Doom Gets a Release Date for Nintendo Switch

DOOM to Arrive on Nintendo Switch on November 10

Doom joins Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in a flurry of first-person shooter goodness for Nintendo's latest hardware release, with Wolfenstein coming to Switch in 2018.

The news was delivered in the form of an id Software developer interview where creative director Hugo Martin and executive producer Marty Stratton dive into how the port differs from the original release. Skyrim for Switch launches just a week after DOOM, and the recently announced L.A Noire port to Switch launches during the same week.

Who plans on double-dipping for a bit of demon-stomping action on the Switch?

The team is confident the game will work on the Switch because of technical analysis done after the release of Doom a year ago.




Doom comes to the Nintendo Switch on November 10.

"We wouldn't put it in people's hands if we weren't proud of it, and didn't think that it is the best possible representation of Doom", Stratton said.

Doom SnapMap – a powerful, but easy-to-use game and level editor – allows for limitless gameplay experiences on every platform. Which is essentially all of it, the entire single player campaign, all difficulty modes, all DLCs, the Arcade mode, and all multiplayer content. How's it look? Based on the video below, good and it seems to play just as fast, but it's a little soft/hazy compared to the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Turns out that you won't have to wait too long to raze some Hell on your Nintendo Switch. Panic Button is also working on the Switch version of vehicular sports game Rocket League, and both ports are looking spectacular.
