“The wait is almost over,” Nintendo's YouTube description reads.

"Get ready to conquer demons when Doom Eternal comes to Nintendo Switch on Dec. 8!”

Doom Eternal Switch Release Date Confirmed Ahead Of Launch Next Week

Check out the trailer below:


While it's unlikely to be the technical showstopper the other versions of the game are, the game will run at 30 FPS and if it's anything like the Switch version of 2016's DOOM reboot, we're in for a treat.

The port is being handled by Panic Button, who previously worked on the aforementioned DOOM 2016 port, as well as the Switch versions of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.

The Switch version will offer Motion Aiming, as well as the BATTLEMODE multiplayer suite that pits the DOOM Slayer against two players controlling demons.

The game is currently nominated for Game of the Year at the Game Awards 2020, as well as for Best Score and Music, Best Audio Design and Best Action game.
