In one of the biggest surprises of today's Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo confirmed that Bethesda's Doom will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the Holiday season. Originally released in May 2016, it was a critically acclaimed new entry in the series that delivered intense 60FPS gunplay.

It's a particularly fascinating announcement as it's a title that not only looks gorgeous but stakes its credibility on buttery smooth gameplay. Evidently developer id Software is pretty confident about how its engine will play out on the Switch, both docked and in handheld mode.

It'll certainly be one of the most intense and mature titles when it arrives on the Switch. Are you excited by this announcement?
