Doom is out today on Switch, and a launch trailer for the game has gone live. We’ve attached the video below.

We have more footage from Doom running on Switch, now showing a look at multiplayer in action. Check out the gameplay below.

A ton of footage has surfaced for the new Switch version of Doom, which is due out at the end of this week. Take a look at the gameplay below.

The release of Doom on Switch is almost here. There are some people who have managed to get the game early it seems, with one person putting together a video comparing it to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions. See how the Switch edition stacks up below.

Psyonix has released a launch trailer for Rocket League on Switch. We have the video below, with the full game coming on November 14.

Update: You can pre-load Doom on the North American Switch eShop now as well.


Original: Pre-loading on the Switch eShop is beginning to become more and more common. The latest game to have made this option available is Doom, which arrives later this week. Switch owners in Europe can begin pre-loading Doom now.

On another note, we also have an update on the file size. It was sitting at around 13.4GB. Now, however, it’s at 21.3GB. That likely means multiplayer will be built in rather than a separate download, despite what was thought last week.

Panic Button is leading the way on some big third-party ports for Switch. The studio was first assigned with the task of putting Rocket League on the platform, and is also working on Bethesda for the Doom port.

Speaking with GamesRadar, Panic Button’s Adam Creighton said that for Doom, the scalable technology made the port “more straightforward than maybe it could have been.” However, it was also “wicked hard”.

Creighton told the site:

Update: Nintendo World Report clarified that the motion controls aren’t for gyro aiming. Instead, you can shake the right Joy-Con to do melee attacks or Glory Kills. The setting only seems to appear if you’re playing with the Joy-Con.


Original: Bethesda originally said that Doom wouldn’t have motion controls on Switch. Perhaps the publisher had a change of heart, as new evidence indicates that the feature is in the game after all.

In a now-removed video, the settings menu for Doom on Switch was shown. Before it was taken down, a screenshot was snapped that clearly shows an option for motion controls. It wouldn’t make much sense for it to be there if the functionality wasn’t planned, right? We’ll have to see how this plays out, but things are looking good for motion controls with Doom on Switch.
