If you love playing old and classic video games, Nintendo and Bethesda might have some news that could make you very happy. In a tweet by the official DOOM account, it has been revealed that DOOM 64 will be launching on the Nintendo Switch console this coming November, or to be more specific, the 22nd of November.
In case you’re not familiar with DOOM 64, this is a title that was originally released back in 1997 where in case the name already did not give it away, was a version of Doom that was launched for the Nintendo 64 console. It was not a port of the game, but rather a sequel. It has been about 22 years since (we wonder if this might be the reason behind the 22nd of November date) so if you’re looking to relive a classic, then you’ll want to keep an eye out for it.
As expected, the game will be getting a slight visual upgrade where it will now be playable at a higher resolution. There will also be support for widescreen graphics, so while it will retain some of that old school look and charm, it will also not feel like such a dated game on more modern displays.

Bethesda has been showing increasing support of the Nintendo Switch platform ever since Skyrim was first teased during the console’s launch. The company has since launched and announced new games for the console, such as DOOM Eternal, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and Fallout Shelter, just to name a few.
