It has been a long time coming, but today Bethesda has officially announced the release date for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on Nintendo Switch. The game is arriving as part of Bethesda’s effort to support Nintendo’s latest platform, though frame rate and graphical compromises have had to be made.
Bethesda kicked off its Switch support with DOOM and Skyrim late last year. Now with Wolfenstein II, we get to see how a 2017 game holds up on Nintendo’s portable system. The port is being handled by Panic Button, the same team that brought DOOM to the Switch in December. There is already a gameplay trailer live, which gives us a very brief look at what to expect in terms of graphics:
We don’t have the technical details just yet, but we do know that the Switch version will be targeting 30 frames per second rather than 60. We can also expect dynamic resolutions to kick in to maintain the frame rate as close to 30 as possible.
Wolfentein II: The New Colossus will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch on the 29th of June. Bethesda has confirmed that Switch owners will be getting the full experience, without any censorship in place.
KitGuru Says: I played quite a bit of DOOM on the Nintendo Switch and while it may not look as nice as the PC version, I considered it to be a pretty major technical achievement. It will be interesting to see if any improvements have been made for the Wolfenstein II port this time around.
