The latest Nintendo Direct revealed many games that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the near future. One of the most surprising announcements came from Bethesda. With it being Doom‘s 25th anniversary this year, Bethesda decided to celebrate by releasing the original Doom trilogy across multiple current-gen platforms but there was no word on Doom 64. Well now, Bethesda has confirmed that Doom 64 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on 22 November.
The announcement isn’t all that much of a shock as ratings for the game on PC and PlayStation 4 were leaked by PEGI some months ago. It’s just that an official Nintendo Switch version has now been confirmed. That said, this announcement has left many wondering if the game will be coming to other platforms soon too.
This will be the first time Doom 64 will be available on a Nintendo console since 1997. Doom 64 was originally developed and published by Midway Games and released only on the Nintendo 64. It was also billed as a direct sequel to the first game. The title received varying reviews, and isn’t considered part of the original trilogy of games. This makes the Nintendo Switch the only console to have all the Doom games available on one platform (including the upcoming Doom: Eternal.)
Fans are quite excited to try out this beloved title, which will include the 30 plus levels of the original game. There is still no word on pricing but it’s safe to assume that it will be similar in price to other Doom ports. Doom 64 will be available on 22 November.
