DOOM Eternal now available on the Nintendo Switch

Bethesda and ID Softworks brutally violent first person shooter DOOM Eternal is finally available on the Nintendo Switch system. It is only available digitally, so you will need to use the eShop to purchase. You will need a spare 17.5 GB of storage space on your system or SD Card. It is priced at $59.99 and Β£49.99. Here’s the details:

Slayer Threat Level at Maximum 

Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power in DOOM Eternalβ€”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. 

Push-Forward Combat 

Take what you need from your enemies. Glory Kill demons to recover health, incinerate them to receive armor and cut them down with the Chainsaw to stock up on ammo.  

Motion Aiming Ready 

Improve your aim 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. 


A new 2 versus 1 multiplayer experience pits a fully-armed DOOM Slayer against two player-controlled demons, fighting it out in a best-of-five round match of intense first-person combat.

    1. Well the obvious answer is that its bait.

      On a more serious note though, historically speaking, the people most interested in hyper violent “mature” games are people 10-14 year olds. That’s not a criticism and I’m not agreeing with the premise that its “kiddie oriented”, but you could make a coherent rationale. I’d wager more 30-40 year olds play Mario than Doom. Again, not a judgement. I really don’t care who the game is “for”.

  1. I really wanted this on my Switch, but I don’t want to give up my storage space for it… :/

    Which sucks, because I basically passed on other console versions to play it on Switch only to find out I probably will end up playing it on the other consoles…

    So annoying. Guess these game studios really don’t think about how not including physical copies can screw people over.

    Especially when the Switch doesn’t have much space to begin with. I almost never buy digitally; maybe a couple small indie games here or there. That’s it!

  2. Oh good, it does have motion aiming. If I’m gonna get a shooter on Switch like Doom 2016 or Overwatch, I gotta know if motion aiming is a thing, because I can’t aim with dual stick for shit.
