Panic Button, the developer behind the Switch port of Doom, is bringing Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus to Nintendo’s console.
In an interview with GameReactor, narrative designer Tommy Tordsson Bjork and senior game designer Andreas Öjerfors went into some details.
“They’re experts at the Switch and now they’re experts with the [id Tech 6] engine so we work with them, and the Doom version turned out to be really kickass on the Switch so I think Wolf will be the same.”
After it being announced that Wolfenstein 2 would make its way over to the Switch, there weren’t any details on who would be handling the conversion.
Doom was handled very capably indeed, squeezing Nintendo’s hardware to make a smooth running, intense experience befitting of id Software’s frenzied shooter.
It is currently scheduled for a 2018 release, and will allow players to take on the role of B.J. Blazkowicz and run amok blasting nazis and dismantling the regime. But this time you will be able to do it on the toilet; does it get much better than that?
Along with being one of this year’s stand out shooters, this also continues Bethesda’s support of the Switch, and will help ensure 2018 continues as smoothly for Nintendo’s console as 2017 did.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
