Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Doom heading to Nintendo Switch

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Doom heading to Nintendo Switch

As sales of the WiiU started to decline, developers abandoned the console to focus on creating truly AAA games for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Check out the Nintendo Direct stream for all the news, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Doom will be the first title to arrive of the two, arriving this winter shortly after the release of the previously announced Switch version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which launches on November 17th.

The studio's VP, Pete Hines did mention recently that a Bethesda title was launching in 2017, although didn't giveaway what it would be.

Most gamers did not expect yesterday's Nintendo Direct to announce that DOOM (and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus) would be released on the Switch.

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

Regardless, it's a major win for the Switch to have Bethesda along for the ride. The gameplay footage was apparently recorded while the Switch was docked, so it remains to be seen how it looks when played using its portable display, but based upon previous Switch games chances are that it'll look pretty good.

Developed by MachineGames and also published by Bethesda Softworks, "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus" is the highly anticipated sequel to 2014's "Wolfenstein: The New Order".

It won't be a new IP and this is further proven in the video below.

It seems likely that a title on its scale would likely produce a lot of battery drain, as well as have to drop the resolution and fps standards.
