DOOM is Coming to the Nintendo Switch in November

Posted by | October 16, 2017 | News, Switch, Video | No Comments

DOOM is coming to the Nintendo Switch – and that’s a good thing. Today Bethesda announced that their 2016 remake of the classic first-person shooter will launch on the Nintendo Switch on November 10. That actually puts it slightly ahead of Skyrim’s Switch debut on November 17.

You can watch id Software developers Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin talk about DOOM and watch footage in the new video above.

“I’m excited for DOOM and Nintendo to be in the same sentence again,” said Martin. “We’re super excited.”

The Switch version will include the full single player campaign, all 18 released maps, DLC, and multiplayer modes. The multiplayer will be a separate download for the physical version, and it won’t come with the SnapMap level editor due to hardware and storage limitations. The Switch port was developed in conjunction with Panic Button.

The recent love affair between Bethesda and Nintendo continues unabated. Skyrim was teased in the initial Nintendo Switch reveal video before being given its November 17 release date. Bethesda’s upcoming alt-history shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is also coming to Nintendo Switch. It’s launching October 27 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a later 2018 date for the Switch.

DOOM launches November 10 for Nintendo Switch. It’s currently pending a rating from the ESRB but I can’t imagine it’ll be rated anything but M for Mature.
