Doom Eternal Nintendo Switch Release Date Revealed
The Nintendo Switch has been a smash success for Nintendo, and has proven to be one of the company’s biggest devices for third-party developers to bring their games to. While the Switch is less powerful than the rival current gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft, big new titles like Mortal Kombat 11 and Wolfenstein: Youngblood have been able to work on the hybrid home/portable console. One such new game confirmed for the Switch was Doom Eternal, which was recently confirmed to be a digital-only release for the device. While this gave some fans some worries about its development, they can now rest easy, as the Doom Eternal Nintendo Switch release date has been revealed.

As reported by GameInformer, Bethesda Softworks and id Software announced the new Doom Eternal Nintendo Switch release date with a new release date on their official Doom Twitter account. Doom Eternal will launch on the Nintendo eShop for the Switch on December 8th, next month. The game has already been out on PC, PS4 and Xbox One since March this year, and is slated to come to the PS5 and Xbox Series X some time in the future. The Switch version, along with all of these other versions, will have access to The Ancient Gods: Part One DLC when it launches some time next year.
Those that pre-ordered the now cancelled Doom Eternal Nintendo Switch physical version have until December 23rd to contact their retailer and turn their pre-order into a game code that comes with the pre-order bonuses. Doom Eternal has been one of the most highly praised games of 2020, and is even up for several awards at this year’s The Game Awards, including Game of the Year. Thankfully, Nintendo Switch users will finally have a chance to play the game ahead of that prestigious award show night. Hopefully our real world Doom is far from Eternal.
