DOOM & Wolfenstein II Coming To Nintendo Switch

In continued surprising support, Bethesda has announced 2016’s DOOM, and the upcoming Wolfenstein II will be launching on the Nintendo Switch.

Who’d have thunk it? DOOM and Wolfenstein on a Nintendo console. With generation after generation of Nintendo seemingly ignoring the big 3rd parties in favor of more family-friendly audiences. It appears they have finally caught on to what their most loyal fanbase wants.

In a surprise announcement during their Nintendo Direct earlier this week, Bethesda easily had the biggest shock with these two games. Not only is the highly acclaimed DOOM that released last year on PS4 and Xbox One, but the upcoming Wolfenstein II is also getting the Switch treatment. Will these have the Switch Tax as well? Hopefully not, but to be honest, I’m not that hopeful.

Will these be downgraded versions compared to PS4, Xbox One, and PC? Absolutely. Will that matter when you’re slaying demons and Nazi’s on the go anywhere you want? Highly unlikely.

Both games are running on the Bethesda id Tech 6 engine likely thanks to the engines scalability, not to mention the Switch fully supports Vulkan. The game will be the complete version, it’s single player, all the DLC that was made free earlier this year, and even it’s multiplayer. However, the latter will not come installed on the cartridge, and must be downloaded via the eshop. The only compromise the game is seeing other than graphics is the Snap Map Level Editor will not be in the Switch version of the game.

DOOM will release for the Switch sometime later this year, although no specific date was given. It is also the unannounced game Bethesda teased earlier this month. As for Wolfenstein II, it similarly wasn’t given a release date, but we do know that it will release on Switch after the other versions sometime next year.
