Doom is Running Pretty Smooth on the Switch

Doom is Running Pretty Smooth on the Switch

The Nintendo Switch has proven to be a hard console to find ever since it was released back in March. Of course, if you're someone who has been hoping The Evil Within 2 would make an appearance on the Nintendo Switch, you might be surprised to know that Shinji Mikami feels the same way. Until that day comes, though, it looks like we'll have plenty of their games to keep us busy. Here's what he had to say about it, "First I'd like to buy a Switch myself".

Hines noted that Bethesda has to approach the game a bit differently given the fact that they're aiming for a new audience.

"We're not coming from the same place with Skyrim in terms of, 'Everyone on this platform already knows the Elder Scrolls series.' There's some amount of-this is new to folks", said Hines. We have to introduce it to them and explain what it is. There is some crossover, but there's also a new audience that isn't sure what these games are.

The tester concluded the hands-on impression with these words: "Bottom line, I've played a respectable looking version of DOOM on what is effectively a tablet. There is some education there as far as, 'Here's why these games are cool and fun'". But while all of that is great, we'd be really eager to hear about a Bethesda-made original game, developed from the ground up with the Switch hardware in mind.

Playing Doom on Switch is an wonderful experience, but bringing the game over from PC did mean that some elements of the visuals won't hold up in comparison to high-end machines. The tester was impressed by the performance of DOOM on Nintendo Switch and went on to make a point that there is a possibility that final build of DOOM on Nintendo Switch could demolish a PC with equivalent specs (with respect to the overall performance).
