Doom's Switch port will be taking Hell on the road this November

Fill 1










Doom released

The team is confident the game will work on the Switch because of technical analysis done after the release of Doom previous year.

Nintendo released a new video focused on DOOM on its YouTube channel today.

The news was delivered in the form of an id Software developer interview where creative director Hugo Martin and executive producer Marty Stratton dive into how the port differs from the original release.

"We knew we had a very scalable engine", says Stratton, noting id Software worked with studio Panic Button on the Switch port.

The Nintendo Switch version will feature a competitive multiplayer mode, which has 12 modes, 18 maps, and all downloadable content included.

Switch owners can look forward to the definitive version of Doom from a feature standpoint.


"They really tailored the experience, the tech, for [the Switch], without watering anything down", Stratton said.

Those other versions also target 60 frames per-second for gameplay, versus the Switch's 30 FPS.

Bethesda confirmed that the port, developed by Panic Button, will release on November 10. "We wouldn't put it in people's hands if we weren't proud of it and we didn't think it was the best possible representation of Doom".

Will you be picking up Doom on Nintendo Switch? When Bethesda announced they were bringing over just about all of their recent titles (Skyrim is launching on November 17th as well, with WolfensteinII at some point) would be coming to the system, I was overjoyed.

Those who have played last year's Doom on PS4, Xbox One, or PC might be concerned about the game's enormous file size.
