DOOM for Nintendo Switch gets a release date and new gameplay footage
Get ready to rip and tear on-the-go in less than a month's time.
After its surprise announcement during Nintendo's September Direct event, the Nintendo Switch version of the action-packed shooter DOOM finally has a concrete release date.
The demon-slaying FPS we called "a flaming tribute to the genre's roots" is set to grace Nintendo's typically family-friendly system on 10 November this year. Despite the Switch packing less raw power than the PS4 or Xbox One, its version of DOOM will retain the full single-player campaign in all its bloody glory, along with the score-based arcade mode that came to the original game post-release.
On the multiplayer side of things, while the Switch version will include all the same modes plus all the DLC content released for DOOM on other systems, you will need to download a separate patch to enable it if you purchase DOOM on a physical cart.
DOOM's release on Switch marks an interesting shift in Nintendo's approach to curation. Nintendo systems have typically steered clear of the more gory, adult experiences, but between DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Skyrim, it's clear Nintendo is open to courting older gamers as much as the younger ones these days.
