The Nintendo Switch version of Doom Eternal comes nine months after the game was first released on March 20 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC. A next-gen version of the game for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S is reportedly on the works as well.
The Switch version of Doom Eternal will have full support for the Switch’s Joy-Con motion control. This means that players can now blast their way through hell using motion controls to aim and shoot hordes of nasty demons. However, the Switch port will feature only single-player and Battlemode multiplayer.
