It turns out that Skyrim isn’t the only game that Bethesda is bringing to the Nintendo Switch. Today the publisher announced that it’s porting both the recent reboot of Doom and the upcoming shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to Nintendo’s portable / console hybrid. Doomwhich originally launched in 2016 — will be available some time this holiday season. And while the PS4, Xbox One, and PC version of The New Colossus will be out next month, it will be coming to the Switch in 2018. The company also finally announced a release date for Skyrim on Switch: it’ll be available on November 17th.

It’s good news for Nintendo, which has often struggled with getting big-name third-party games on its platforms. The announcement follows recent news that Rockstar will be supporting the platform as well, with an upcoming port of detective drama LA Noire.
