DOOM Coming to Nintendo Switch for the Holiday Season

Skyrim's Switch release date was also finally announced during the event, with players getting to experience being the Dragonborn on the console starting November 17. Engadget learned from Bethesda that the Switch version will include all updates and DLC, although due to restrictions of the Switch's storage capacities, the multiplayer will need to be downloaded separately.

This is undoubtedly very good news not only for the arrival of these two great games but also because the announcement proves that Switch is able to handle very recent third-party games and that the support of big companies is proving really remarkable.

Doom debuted previous year to critical and commercial success for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Bethesda is bringing Doom and Wolfenstein 2 to the console, the company announced during Nintendo Direct yesterday.

Doom will be the first to arrive on the scene, releasing for Switch sometime before the end of the year.

"In addition to these new features, Skyrim for Switch will come fully loaded with all official add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn".

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

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 is somewhat surprising the removal of Doom for the list of Xbox One X enhanced titles since other games from Bethesda such as Dishonored 2, Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, and Fallout 4 are being enhanced for the console.

It will be interesting to see how Wolfenstein shapes up on the Nintendo Switch and how well it performs in handheld mode.
