Hands-On Demo Impressions: All Bethesda Games on Nintendo Switch and VR

Doom (Nintendo Switch)

When this title was announced at the most recent Nintendo Direct, I was shocked that it was being ported -- and nervous about how this game would play on the portable console.

But after getting to see it for myself, I can assure you: DOOM plays really well on the Nintendo Switch. 

The graphics are comparable to the console version, but might look a little fuzzy to those who have played the game already. I played my demo using the Pro Controller, and it felt really nice. If you played the game on console or on PC using a controller, the controls are exactly the same -- so you won't feel lost when you play it on the go.

 

I made several attempts to get the release date out of the Bethesda representative, but she did not budge. I did, however, get confirmation that the game will include DOOM's full campaign and arcade mode. The multiplayer modes and every map released so far will be available as a download, and not on the Switch cartridge.  

DOOM will release for the Switch around the 2017 holiday season.
