    The Switch is now gradually starting to get a decent amount of third-party (non-indie) support now that it’s obvious the system is selling well. The games themselves just need to sell now.

    Double god damn! First Doom now this….

  • Sean Sharpe

    If the Switch gets Cruchyroll, I have not reason to turn on my PS4 until Dragon Quest XI.

  • sanic

    wonder if it has the switch tax.

    Funny that in the direct there are swastikas instead of the logo like this image. I wonder if they will keep it in the game ?

  • Travis Touchdown

    Switch is getting Dragon Quest XI…

  • Mechonis

    Curious to see performance on the Switch but getting this and Doom is great!

  • InkViper

    The swastikas will be removed from the German version, I watched the European direct they weren’t there, but I’ve gone through through the Japanese trailer and the swastikas is still there.

    NS owners may as well get the complete edition and know if the game is worth it.

  • Sean Sharpe

    Right, but the Switch hasn’t even had a Japanese announcement and I’m not waiting forever to play it.

  • Inferior ports of games that are already going to be on better consoles is not a point in nintendo’s favor.

  • Feniks

    Sadly a lot of people live in countries were they either work or are on the way to work. These people are never at home to play videogames.

    For them its either play on small shitty screen or never play at all.

  • Feniks

    Swastikas are symbols used in Buddhism so it would be weird if Japan censored them.

  • catazxy

    That will tell us just how competent is the switch compared to the other platforms, because year after year, the performance will only get worse.

    I think that by the end of the switch’s life cycle, in terms of resolution/fps/textures/geometry it will feel closer to a 3ds when you’ll be looking at the games from the competition….

  • DrearierSpider

    Hopefully this convinces Bethesda to move all their internal projects to id Tech 6. I’m guessing this is only possible because of how well optimized that engine is, whereas games like Dishonored 2 or The Evil Within probably couldn’t be done on such a weak console.

  • Michael Richardson

    The better console will let me play DOOM and Wolfenstein II anywhere I like.

    No point in buying this on PS4/Xbone when the PC versions will perform better overall and give me access to a superior control scheme.

  • Michael Richardson

    What if the Switch and PS4 versions are released overseas simultaneously?

  • Sean Sharpe

    Well, then I’ll totally get the Switch version because handhelds make RPGs better.

  • Revonox

    Are you stupid?
    It’s more like the other way around. Devs will understand the hardware better, can optimize their engines and in return deliver better looking content. Compare some Xbox360/PS3 launch titles to titles released at the end of their gen. There’s a massive difference.

  • catazxy

    Nah, there are very few differences between a mid-range pc and the latest consoles, that wasn’t the case in 2006, the ps3 and xbox 360 were a pain in the ass to work with, thats why it took them years to figure out everithing. The new consoles have AMD components….where were you all this time, its been common knowledge since 2013…
