Bethesda announce Doom and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus for Nintendo Switch


Due to size constraints as well, only the single-player campaign is on the game card.

The Nintendo Direct event yesterday has provided some big news on what new projects are coming to the hybrid console.

Speaking of Bethesda it is also the Publisher of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which released a remastered version of the game on current-gen consoles namely the Xbox One and PS4 and in this years E3 Bethesda announced that the remastered version will also release on the Switch on November 17th.

What won't be included is the SnapMap Editor, which is something Bethesda has ruled out for the Switch version. This is to say that the Switch will be getting two, high-profiled, graphically demanding first-person shooters within the next year.

The Hybrid Console by Nintendo is getting two awesome sweet new additions to its list of treats and an even sweeter for the console owners and fans.

Regardless, it's a major win for the Switch to have Bethesda along for the ride. Their latest title Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is going to get a port as well.

Nintendo unveiled a swathe of new Switch and 3DS titles last night, including a brand new Super Mario Odyssey-themed Switch hardware bundle and the news that Bethesda's critically acclaimed Doom (2016) and upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus titles will also be heading to Switch over the next year.

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

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.
