While id Software’s Doom Eternal graced majority of platforms this past March where its release coincided with Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the game never embarked for the Nintendo Switch. While the predecessor received a well-handled port previously, the sequel was told a version to be in development. However, it was left undated as to when the game would arrive.

Last hearing from the development team on the project, id Software offered insight on the Panic Button port which illustrated a glowing future for the version of Doom Eternal. “It’s really made great progress. Panic Button, the studio we work with on that, as I’ve said before they’re masters of the platform,” studio executive producer Marty Stratton commented on the progress made.

But while the soon announcement Stratton mentioned seemed to never come, that changed today. Just earlier in the day, Bethesda uploaded a trailer revealing the Nintendo Switch version is set to arrive next week. You can watch the trailer in the video below:

One detail that might upset some Nintendo Switch owners is that the port coming will not offer a physical version for purchase – only available to download from the Nintendo eShop. Additionally, the same features present on the first game unique to Nintendo Switch like gyro controls and HD rumble activated for the follow-up game.

Likewise, multiplayer is also present in the game as you would find on pre-existing versions on other systems. In similar respect to the Nintendo Switch port, Bethesda also shared that next-generation consoles will be welcoming Doom Eternal alongside The Elder Scrolls Online with a new standard of improvements on the new systems.

Also in recent news regarding Doom Eternal, the demon-killing first-person shooter is nominated for a handful of awards for this year’s The Game Awards. Those awards include Best Score & Music, Best Audio Design, Best Action, and Game of the Year. You can read the full list of nominations for 2020’s The Game Awards by heading here.
