So it seems there's nothing to panic about in regards to DOOM being any less DOOM on the Switch. Skyrim was teased in the initial Nintendo Switch reveal video before being given its November 17 release date.
The news was announced via an interview with Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin, the Executive Producer and Creative Director at id Software respectively.
Doom for Switch is pretty much the port that should not be. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat whether youre obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. "They really tailored the experience toward [the Switch] hardware without watering anything down".
"You won't find another game like this on the Nintendo Switch right now, which is what I think we're really excited about", Stratton said. That date goes for both North America and Europe.More news: Donald Trump denies asking to increase U.S. nuclear arsenal by tenfold
On the single player front, the Switch version will include the ultra-nightmare mode in which the game deletes your save file if you die. Since then we've seen footage of the game running in handheld mode, and it looks insanely good for a console that's not only portable, but far less powerful than the consoles the game was previously created to work on.
To commemorate this announcement, Bethesda and id have released a new developer interview that details some of the Switch version's new features.
DOOM is coming to the Nintendo Switch - and that's a good thing.
