Nintendo confirms 'Doom' and 'Wolfenstein II' will be coming to the Switch

Nintendo confirms 'Doom' and 'Wolfenstein II' will be coming to the Switch

Wolfenstein II will then arrive sometime during 2018. Thanks To publisher Bethesda. Bethesda is not only bringing Skyrim to Switch but, Doom is also coming to the hybrid console this holiday season.

Thanks to the Twitter user PixelPar, we now have side-by-side shots of DOOM running on PS4 and the Nintendo Switch.

Bethesda is bringing Doom and Wolfenstein 2 to the console, the company announced during Nintendo Direct yesterday.

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 fantastic shooters such as Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 amongst others. Engadget learned from Bethesda that the Switch version will include all updates and DLC, although due to restrictions of the Switch's storage capacities, the multiplayer will need to be downloaded separately.

Both games use id Tech 6 and apparently, the engine in question can also run on a technically not so powerful hardware such as Nintendo.

First off, almost all of the game's updates and DLC will be included and the only feature going to be left out is the SnapMap level editor.

In related news, Bethesda is also bringing the VR version of the critically acclaimed game titled Doom VFR. However, being able to play big releases while on the move is appealing to many gamers, and as a result it seems likely that DOOM and Wolfenstein II would find a sizeable audience among those who want to game while on the go. And Doom for the Nintendo Switch won't be getting the SnapMap editor at all.
