After it was announced for the system several months ago, Wolfenstein II arrives on Switch tomorrow. Find a video below comparing it to the PC version, along with the first 19 minutes.

Wolfenstein II launches on Switch this week. But what about Wolfenstein: The New Order, the last game main in the series? Or how about The New Order’s standalone prequel Wolfenstein: The Old Blood?

Unfortunately, at least for the time being, there aren’t any plans for either of these titles on Switch. Adam Creighton, studio head at developer Panic Button, told GameSpot in a new interview:

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is one of the new games Bethesda announced at E3 last week. The company didn’t share many details in the end though, and technically hasn’t confirmed platforms. But GameStop did end up taking pre-orders for a Switch version following the reveal.

Fast forward a few days later, and that listing is nowhere to be seen. It’s not a good sign, but no confirmations have been made either way.

The one concerning thing we’ll mention here is that we noticed how Bethesda’s UK department has provided tentative boxarts for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Switch did not have a similar packaging image. Again, it’s still not a confirmation, but it’s looking a bit less likely that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will end up on Switch. We’ll keep an eye on things either way.

This information comes from Adam Creighton, the head of Panic Button…

One of the new games Bethesda announced during its E3 conference last night was Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Not a whole lot of information was shared, including platforms.

Interestingly, GameStop has just added in a Switch listing for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. It doesn’t officially confirm a release on the console, but certainly makes things interesting. You can even pre-order it here.

Here’s a brief overview and trailer for Wolfenstein: Youngblood:

Set in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution, Wolfenstein®: Youngblood introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis. Play as one of BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris

Thanks to Jes T for the tip.

Nintendo World Report has posted a new video of Wolfenstein II running in portable mode on Switch. View the footage below.

Below you’ll find the latest trailer for Wolfenstein II. Nintendo added the video to its YouTube channel just a few moments ago, and it’s intended to serve as a general overview.

Bethesda has a little something special planned for Wolfenstein II on Switch. When the game debuts next month, fans will be able to get their hands on an extra game sleeve with alternate artwork.

Simply visit your local GameStop on the June 29 launch day. If you stop by the store, you can pick up the sleeve without even making a purchase. It’ll be available while supplies last.

When the file size for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was first added to the Switch eShop, it clocked in at 13.7GB. It looks like it’ll actually take up quite a bit more space than that.

Wolfenstein II’s eShop listing has been updated, and now has a notice stating that at least 23GB of free space will be required upon release. It’s unclear why the actual size is still listed at 13.7GB, but be prepared to have another 10GB of space ready.
