I can't see/imagine DOOM running well on Switch in any capacity. That said, a double dip wouldn't be out of the question if only for curiosity's sake

Freakin' Bethesda is supporting Switch more than a longtime Nintendo partner like Capcom.

Hm surprising that they ain't putting the new order and old blood on the switch as well? Anyway glad to see Bethesda supporting the switch more and more and I hope more follow suit, thus making the switch more enticing (than it already is) for me to pick up

Holy shit. I forgot about that.

Maybe they'll cut multi and map creation out?

It looks like it's the PC version on the lowest setting, still looks good of what we could see in the direct and what Switch can do

as already said, DOOM runs on machines far weaker than ps4 and xbox 1, and that likely goes for wolfenstien 2 as well, need i remind people that wolfenstein 1 was on PS3 and 360? all they need to do is lower settings, resolution and FPS enough for it to run. That's what it means for switch to share a modern GPU and CPU featureset with the other consoles

Digital Foundry analysis of Doom Switch is now one of my most anticipated things. Imagine Doom '16 portable. Considering the system I thought the few seconds we saw looked great

Doom is like a 60 Gb sized game. How are they fitting that on a switch cartridge? And RIP to your storage if you want a digital version.

You know what? Nice!

I might double dip on Doom if they implement a nice motion control setting.
And Wolfenstein 2 seems to be the easiest version for me to get a version with English Voice Overs...

Ubisoft, EA, Rockstar, Bethesda... Slowly but surely, third parties are coming back to Nintendo and it's so damn exciting!

This is so freaking awesome. I am so happy. I have Doom on my PC and it is my go to game for mindless fun. Will rebuy for on the go awesomeness. Will definitely get wolfenstein for switch. Own and play it on PC but will grab the switch version for portability. Dam this is just too awesome.

Also, no excuses to not port AAA games now :p . When even Bethesda does it...

Yeah but this will be a good test to see what can we expect from other AAA ports in terms of performance if they will happen in the future.

This is gods damned insane news to me.

I mean hats off to Nintendo for getting these games on their system, just absolutely brilliant news afternoon long being unable to get contracts in place and or hardware easy enough to port to.

If they're both 60fps, I'm getting these on Switch!

This pretty much puts a spotlight on developers that say Switch can't handle their games. I know we're in for a downgrade but if it looks good and is playable. Do it.

That wasn't the argument now was it. It was that current gen games just couldn't run at all on the system. The argument will now simply change to "only certain games will run" and then to "pfft who wants to play a gimped version on Switch anyway" lol.
