Last year, the unthinkable happened - the Switch got a new Doom game, the first since the '90s. A remarkable technical accomplishment, Doom gained rave reviews - but if industrious hackers have their way, it won't be the last slice of hellish FPS action we get on Switch.

As reported by Kotaku, there are other Doom games coming to the console, albeit unofficially. Late last year, kgDoom continued the happy tradition of trying to get id Software's original 1993 outing onto every new piece of consumer tech by porting it to Switch.

Doom 3 has also been ported over, thanks to the fact that in 2011 id Software released the source code to the game. iodoom3 is a project which aims to get it running on as many platforms as possible, and Switch is included.

With Linux now known to be working on Nintendo's console, the sky is really the limit here; there's no reason why we couldn't see Doom II or Doom 64 running on the system under emulation. It's also worth pointing out that Doom 3: BFG Edition has previously been ported to the Nvidia Shield - a platform which runs on Tegra tech, just like Switch. It therefore wouldn't take a lot of work to bring that enhanced version over (officially), either.
