Doom Eternal is coming to Nintendo Switch. The launch announcement was somehow overshadowed in the QuakeCon excitement earlier today, but a news release from Bethesda Softworks confirms that the shooter will launch for the Switch alongside versions for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Doom Eternal, the sequel to 2016’s Doom reboot from id Software, will be ported to Switch by Panic Button, which also ported the 2016 game and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus to Switch. Bethesda confirmed Panic Button’s involvement to Polygon.

Doom Eternal was announced at E3 2018 and it continues the story reintroduced with Doom, a critically acclaimed return to one of video gaming’s staple brands and genres. It was Polygon’s game of the year for 2016. In the sequel, players will be fighting on an Earth overrun by demons.

We have more coverage of Doom Eternal from QuakeCon — such as the ability for players to take control of demons and go eff up another human player’s campaign. There will be new weapons including a shoulder-mounted flamethrower, a melee blade and a new dash ability, to help the player deal with a force from Hell.

No release date has been specified for Doom Eternal yet.
