Bethesda is going all out with support for the Nintendo Switch with not only The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim but two games no one saw coming. During Nintendo’s latest Direct it was revealed that Bethesda is bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to the Switch, much to everyone’s surprise.
DOOM impressed almost everyone when it released in 2016 for major platforms, with its stunning visuals and smooth gameplay, and will be arriving for the Switch during the holiday season.
Meanwhile, Bethesda announced Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus back at E3 for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC as a follow up to the 2014 hit Wolfenstein: The New Order. Now the sequel is also headed to Switch. Although system owners will have to wait until 2018 for the game, the portability option might make this port worth the wait.
The rebooted Wolfenstein series takes place in an alternate version of history where Germany won World War II and now occupies the United States. As B.J. Blazkowicz, you fight to spark a second American Revolution and take back America from the occupying forces.
Did you expect to see these games in the Nintendo Direct? It’s safe to say nobody saw Bethesda going this far for the Switch.
