The new Doom adventure, Doom: Eternal, releases on March 20 for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. These platforms will have access to the game immediately when it launches, and players can dive straight into it if they pre-ordered the game and did any pre-loading for it. However, Doom: Eternal will also come to the Nintendo Switch.

The big problem with the Nintendo Switch release is we have no current details or a finalized date for it. We don’t have any expectations to narrow down when Doom: Eternal will become available for those wanting to play it on the easily portable Nintendo platform. Initially, Doom: Eternal was set to release on November 22, 2019, but was pushed back to March 19, 2020, which id Software shared from their official Twitter account where it assured fans it was making the best game possible. It needed the extra time to let the concept settle, and for everything to smoothly launch.

With no official release date for the title on to the Nintendo Switch, we’re left with things up in the air. However, DOOM 64 will be available on March 20. Any fan who needs a game to tide them over until Doom: Eternal officially comes out can pick it up from the Nintendo eShop. It’s to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Doom franchise. Doom 64 originally came out to the Nintendo 64 in 1997, making it nearly 25 years old, too.

If publisher Bethesda or developer id Software come forward with more concrete details, we’ll update this guide to ensure players have the new information regarding Doom: Eternal‘s Nintendo Switch release. Hopefully, fans do not have long to wait until they can take their new Doom adventure with them wherever they go.
