Skyrim now belongs to a trio of Bethesda’s best-selling franchises coming to the Switch, as DOOM and Wolfenstein II are going portable in the future.
Just announced during this afternoon’s Nintendo Direct presentation, 2016’s DOOM and the upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will both see releases on the Nintendo Switch. Though publisher Bethesda is saving details for a future date, id Software and Machine Games will take the helm for their respective title’s Switch versions; whether or not single Joy-Con use or Amiibo functionality will be present for either game also remains a mystery, however Skyrim will allow players to use Amiibos to fast-unlock in-game gear and weapons based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. A proper trailer has yet to release for either game, but the official announcement can be seen near the 24:30 mark of today’s Nintendo Direct.
Skyrim will be the first of Bethesda’s three Switch announcements to release on 11/17, followed by DOOM sometime this 2017 holiday season and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in early 2018.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is currently scheduled to release for PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 10/27; DOOM is currently available on the same platforms, complete with all DLC content free of charge courtesy of the recent “6.66” update.
