Doom 64 is to be released for Nintendo Switch on November 22.
The game, which was recently rated for multiple platforms in Australia and Europe, was announced for Switch during a Nintendo Direct live stream on Wednesday.
“For the first time since its original release in 1997, Doom 64 will be officially available on a Nintendo console,” said Pete Hines, SVP of global marketing and communications at publisher Bethesda. “Relive your crusade against the demons in more than 30 action-packed levels.”
Bethesda declined to comment on whether Doom 64 will be a Switch exclusive when contacted by VGC on Thursday.
The latest Doom instalment, Doom Eternal, will also release on November 22, 2019 for Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia.
