Doom will be the first to arrive on the scene, releasing for Switch sometime before the end of the year.

The last but probably biggest announcement from the Nintendo Direct event was that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus would be coming to Switch.

More importantly, the brutal and gory nature of the gameplay is a complete departure from the typical type of title released on the Japanese company's consoles.

With Bethesda jumping on board the Switch hype train and releasing two of their biggest titles, it gives a lot of hope for the future that other Triple A developers will make the move to Switch in a big way.

Doom for Nintendo Switch was one of the more eye-catching announcements, with Bethesda revealing that the popular shooter would be arriving this year. Developed by id software, Doom is a hit title that didn't warranted too much attention yet managed to satisfy majority of gamers. The game picks up where Wolfenstein: The New Order left off, with B.J. Blazkowicz now in America, seeking to overthrow the Nazi regime. It suffered from some latency issue, and although most did not call it outright awful, this content struggled to live up to the single player campaign.

"In addition to these new features, Skyrim for Switch will come fully loaded with all official add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn". The sequel was already confirmed PC, PlayStation4, and Xbox One; with the release date set for October 27th, 2017.

DOOM has been announced for the Nintendo Switch, with a whole bunch of people excited to be able to play the ultra-violent FPS on the handheld / home console hybrid.
