September Nintendo Direct – Skyrim, DOOM & Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Two big surprises during the Nintendo Direct were the announcements of DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for Switch. The long awaited Skyrim for Switch was also finally given a release date.

Skyrim will be released for Switch first of the three, coming out on November 17. The Switch version will include all three DLC packs; “Dawnguard,” “Hearthfire” and “Dawnguard.” It will also include all new motion controls for combat and lockpicking. Players will be able to cosplay as Link with the Legend of Zelda armour and weapons, including the Master Sword. Bonus loot will also be unlocked by using a compatible Legend of Zelda amiibo.

DOOM will be a port of the 2016 release; however, it will only include the single-player campaign. The multiplayer component will be available as a separate download on release. The SnapMap feature, included in the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions, won’t be coming to the Switch version at all. However, the multiplayer mode is being touted as featuring all-new modes. DOOM is due to release on Switch Holliday 2017.

Finally, Bethesda will be bringing BJ Blazkowicz to Switch in 2018. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will see a release on Switch and let players fight for American liberation from the Nazis while on the move. Details remain scarce for now, but we’ll keep you updated.

Skyrim will be available for Switch on November 17.
DOOM will be available for Switch later this year and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will launch for Switch in 2018.
