‘Doom’ Gets Release Date for Nintendo Switch


Gamers who have been looking forward to slaying demons on the go won’t have to wait much longer. Bethesda has announced a November 10th release date for Doom on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch version of Doom looks just as fast and fun as it originally did when it launched for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2016. It looks a little softer than it did on other consoles, but thats to be expected based on the Tegra X1 chip in Nintendo’s new console/handheld hybrid.

Doom for the Nintendo Switch is being developed by Panic Button, the studio bringing Rocket League to the Switch. It seems like Bethesda is buying into the Nintendo hype as well, because the upcoming Wolfenstein II and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will also be released for the Switch.

This upcoming Nintendo version of Doom will run at a reduced frame rate of 30 frames per second, versus the PS4 and Xbox One’s 60. Players can’t take those consoles on the go however, and 30 FPS is still easily playable. Everything in the PS4 and Xbox One version will be present on the Switch version with the exception of snap-map. Players can expect the full multiplayer suite, and the full single player campaign identical to it’s console big brothers. Check out the latest developer video below, and make sure to check back shortly after launch for THDR’s full review of Doom for the Nintendo Switch.

Doom is available now for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Nintendo Switch version will launch on November 10th.
