Doom on Switch gets a confirmed release date for November

Doom for Switch Release Date Announced by Nintendo

Doom for Switch Release Date Announced by Nintendo

The announcement came alongside a new interview on the Nintendo YouTube channel with creative director Hugo Martin and executive producer Marty Stratton, both from id Software.

Bethesda is remaining the publisher of Doom's Switch version, but the port is actually being developed by Panic Button, not id Software.

Who plans on double-dipping for a bit of demon-stomping action on the Switch?

The companies revealed the release date in separate posts on Twitter, alongside an interview with Doom developer id Software. It's launching October 27 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a later 2018 date for the Switch.

Patriots rally to beat Jets
When the Patriots needed a first down to close out the game in the fourth quarter, Brady & Co. couldn't deliver. Had it stood, it would've narrowed New England's lead to a field goal (had the extra point been converted).

Those other versions also target 60 frames per-second for gameplay, versus the Switch's 30 FPS. Rest assured the single-player campaign will fit snugly on the Switch's 16 GB cartridge, but the online multiplayer mode will have to be downloaded separately in a 9 GB file - free of charge from the Switch eShop, of course.

A Relentless Campaign - There is no taking cover or stopping to regenerate health as you beat back Hell's raging demon hordes.

Dominate your opponents in Dooms signature, fast-paced arena-style combat. Arcade mode will also be available, which allows you to play any level on any difficulty level, and with all power-ups unlocked. But you can't exactly stuff those consoles into a messenger bag and play them on a cross-country flight, so it's a matter of what's important to you.

Some changes have been made to the game, with Panic Button being the primary experts on knowing what needed to be changed for Doom to run on the Nintendo Switch's hardware.
