Bethesda is releasing both Doom and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on the Nintendo Switch, ensuring that players can rip and tear demons and nazis on the go.
In a surprise announcement, Bethesda actually did reveal a secret, unannounced title that they accidentally let slip earlier this month. While I know a couple people who were expecting some kind of port, the guesses I heard thrown around pertained to Fallout. Doom and Wolfenstein 2 are both left-field choices, but I won't complain about playing one of the 2016's best shooters and 2017's most anticipated shooters on Nintendo's portable console.
Bethesda accidentally let slip that there was an unannounced title coming later this year, but the company walked back the statement on Twitter. Unfortunately, speculation started the minute the story went live and just a couple weeks later we're living in a world where Doom is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Doom and Wolfenstein 2 on the Switch are the latest Nintendo Switch ports Bethesda's releasing, alongside Skyrim. The horror-shooter will support the Nintendo Switch pro controller for players who want a more traditional controller experience, but no details yet on any other controller setup.
Doom came out last year, and while critics and fans were a little hesitant leading up to the game's release, Doom proved to be an exhilarating adventure. Last year's Doom revitalized the classic PC shooter, modernizing a lot of the gameplay to make it feel even faster and more brutal than its predecessors. No doubt that the Switch version will try and replicate the self-contained brutality of the original console and PC release of the game.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus will be out later this year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and the Switch in 2018. THe story continues the nazi hunting exploits of Lt. Blascowicz, but in the former US this time.
We'll have more details for Doom on the Switch as the story develops.
