Doom and Wolfenstein II The New Colossus will be heading to Nintendo Switch. Thanks To publisher Bethesda.
The Hybrid Console by Nintendo is getting two amazing sweet new additions to its list of treats and an even sweeter for the console owners and fans.
Nintendo has announced through Nintendo Direct that Doom and Wolfenstein II The New Order will be coming to the Switch, With Doom releasing this Holiday on the Switch and Wolfenstein 2 hitting the console sometime next year both games are published by Bethesda.
Speaking of Bethesda it is also the Publisher of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which released a remastered version of the game on current-gen consoles namely the Xbox One and PS4 and in this years E3 Bethesda announced that the remastered version will also release on the Switch on November 17th.
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 amazing shooters such as Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 amongst others. Yet the game stood on its own two feet and was praised by fans and critics alike for its all guns blazing gameplay, and its amazing soundtrack. Doom was developed by id Software and ran on id Tech 6 an Engine whose propriatery rights are owned by Bethesda. The game will also run on the same engine on Switch with the Campaign and Multiplayer returning on the console with some new aspects being added into the multiplayer.
Wolfenstein II The New Order will hit the PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27th. The game is being developed by Machine Games and will run on the same engine as Doom ie id Tech 6. The game will feature a release on the Switch sometime next year Machine Games will also be developing the Switch variant and will run on the same engine.
So it looks like the fears of having a Nintendo Switch with no heavy hitters later on in the year were far from the mark , and the console is adding some heavy hitters to its amazing library of games.
For more news on when Doom and Wolfenstein 2 will be coming to the Switch stay tuned.
