Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Doom heading to Nintendo Switch

When Doom comes to the Nintendo Switch later this year, it will include the full single player campaign but no multiplayer. It's good to see that Bethesda is supporting Nintendo Switch - at the same presentation - Nintendo and Bethesda announced the exact release date of Skyrim for Nintendo Switch.

Yesterday during a Nintendo Direct livestream, it was revealed that both Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are coming to the Nintendo Switch.

However, today we're getting a closer look at just how well DOOM on Switch stacks up to the competition, thanks to some side-by-side screenshots. 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.

Regardless, it's a major win for the Switch to have Bethesda along for the ride.

After all, who would have imagined that a game like Doom would land on the Switch?

DOOM is due out this holiday season for the Switch, while Wolfenstein 2 is due out next year.

This was another project without a solid release window, although Bethesda did confirmed that they are hoping to launch it in 2018.

The likes of Destiny 2 and Call of Duty WW2 aren't coming to the Nintendo Switch, and it's mostly thought that it's the console's hardware holding them back.

It seems likely that a title on its scale would likely produce a lot of battery drain, as well as have to drop the resolution and fps standards.
