Did someone at Nintendo jump the gun here? A possible leak from QuakeCon taking place this weekend? It certainly seems so. Hopefully all the games will release today as originally stated.

Original Article: (26th July, 15:00 BST): To celebrate DOOM's 25th anniversary, the original 1993 DOOM, DOOM II and DOOM 3 have all magically appeared on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Say whaaaat?!

Yep, all three games have just appeared on Nintendo's official UK site and they're all coming out today. They're not actually live to buy on the eShop just yet strangely, but we assume they'll be ready to purchase very soon indeed. We've got the rundown on all three below:


DOOM (1993 Original)

Celebrate DOOM’s 25th anniversary with the re-release of the original DOOM (1993). First released in 1993, DOOM introduced millions of gamers to the fast-paced, white-knuckle, demon-slaying action the franchise is known for.
