The upcoming re-release of Doom 64 appears to be more than just a simple port. As one of the big highlights, a new chapter will be included.

Senior developer James Haley told USgamer in a recent interview:

Doom Eternal won’t be launching on Switch this month alongside other platforms, but it sounds like the wait will be worth it. Marty Stratton, who has been heading up the game, told USgamer that he’s “stunned” by the game on Nintendo’s console. He also think it’ll surprise people given what Panic Button has managed to pull off on Switch.

Extra care is being put in to ensure that Doom Eternal isn’t compromised on Switch. That also extends to ensuring that the game looks and feels great whether you’re playing docked or in portable mode.

Stratton said:

Doom Eternal releases on March 20, 2020 with a release for Switch TBD.
