At QuakeCon 2018, Bethesda gave audiences a taste of the very first gameplay footage for Doom Eternal, the sequel to their massively-successful 2016 Doom reboot. Shortly after the presentation wrapped up, the official Doom Twitter page announced that the new game would, in fact, be released for the Nintendo Switch upon launch.

This news isn’t totally shocking, as 2016’s Doom was ported to the Switch in November of 2017. However, seeing as how Doom Eternal had previously only been announced for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, this announcement is likely to prompt a sigh of relief from those who have been wondering if they’d be able to take on the game’s horde of new demons while on the go.

Whereas Doom was added to the Switch’s catalog a whole year-and-a-half following the game’s initial launch for the other platforms, Doom Eternal looks as though it’s getting ready to fire on all cylinders upon its 2019 launch.

Doom Eternal is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game currently does not have an official release date.
