Doom Eternal has been a dramatic situation for Nintendo Switch owners. The excellently received first-person shooter released on other consoles back on March 20, 2020, and although it was expected to be delayed on the Nintendo Switch, fans and people who reserved the title did not expect to have to wait nearly 9 whole months for it to finally release on the hybrid system.
The drama does not end there, because IGN reported a couple weeks ago that Doom Eternal will be download-only on the Switch, meaning all of those players who pre-ordered a physical copy lost their pre-order and got a refund.
It has not been a series of good news for Switch owners and Doom fans, but thankfully, we did receive an official announcement for the release date and a new trailer for the Nintendo Switch version.
Doom Eternal, the award-winning game and “one of the best first-person shooters ever” according to GameRevolution, is coming to Nintendo Switch. Developed by id Software and Panic Button, Doom Eternal is the direct sequel to Doom, winner of The Game Awards’ Best Action Game of 2016.
Hell’s armies have invaded Earth. Become the Slayer in an epic single-player campaign to conquer demons across dimensions and stop the final destruction of humanity. The only thing they fear… is you.
Look forward to finally slaying demons and bringing peace to Hell when the game finally releases on the eShop on December 8th, 2020, and we will be sure to keep you updated if anything else comes up.
