id Software have announced that DOOM Eternal, the latest entry in their critically-acclaimed shooting series, will be finally launching on the Nintendo Switch on December 8th, giving Switch gamers the chance to ‘rip and tear’ on the go with some console-exclusive control features. Check out the official Nintendo Switch trailer down below:
Developed in partnership with Panic Button – the studio behind the Nintendo Switch ports of DOOM (2016), Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood – players can experience the epic single-player campaign at home or on the go.
Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power in DOOM Eternal with the next leap in first-person combat powered by idTech 7. Armed with a shoulder-mounted flamethrower, wrist-mounted blade, upgraded guns, new abilities and more, you’re the greatest demon slayer in existence.
Motion Aiming arrives for DOOM Eternal on Nintendo Switch, with a control option that allows you to aim using gyro controls. The option can be used in conjunction with the control stick for the perfect blend of immersion and accuracy.
Players can also test their skill in BATTLEMODE, a 2 vs. 1 online multiplayer experience. A fully-armed DOOM Slayer faces off against two player-controlled demons, fighting it out in a best-of-five round match.

I personally cannot wait to get back slaying demons and protecting Earth – I loved DOOM Eternal when I played it on the PlayStation 4 earlier this year (check out our review through this link), so getting to do it all over again on the Nintendo Switch’s portable mode will be a blast.
