Doom and Wolfenstein are coming to Nintendo Switch

DOOM Wolfenstein II coming to Nintendo Switch

It was stated at the presentation that DOOM will arrive on Nintendo Switch during Holiday 2017. The gameplay footage was apparently recorded while the Switch was docked, so it remains to be seen how it looks when played using its portable display, but based upon previous Switch games chances are that it'll look pretty good.

Also during the Nintendo Direct conference, Bethesda revealed new footage for the Switch version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which launches on November 17th, making it the first game in the series on a Nintendo system. However, with the Switch not being as powerful as the PS4 and Xbox One, it's inevitable that DOOM will have to undergo a visual downgrade before it makes the transition to Nintendo's console, and new side-by-side comparisons show how much has been changed. You can check out the DOOM screenshots for yourself right here. These are the kinds of games that the Wii U desperately needed in order to stay afloat, but unfortunately never got. This is to say that the Switch will be getting two, high-profiled, graphically demanding first-person shooters within the next year.

The last but probably biggest announcement from the Nintendo Direct event was that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus would be coming to Switch.

The New Colossus isn't due on Switch until 2018, so it will miss a simultaneous release with PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27.
