Quasi-3D Demon Slaying Returns In Force
Like a tropical storm of pleasant surprises, another Nintendo Direct has descended upon us! Among the multitude of magical news items is this: Doom 64, that elusive gem from days of yore, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this November!
To be specific, the game is getting remastered for its release on a Nintendo console once again. If you’ve never played this entry in the storied Doom chronology, it’s… pretty great? Not a massive innovation as far as Doom goes, but still a rock solid title. Originally developed by Midway, Id was merely supervising this time around. And those graphics!
Okay, so the monsters are still weird blurry husks prancing around a series of polygonal mazes, but this looked pretty good at the time! Between this, Doom (2016), and the Doom trilogy, you can get a massive amount of Doomguy murdering in on one portable console. Doom 64 is coming to the Nintendo Switch on November 22nd, 2019. Check out the announcement trailer below!
