Wolfenstein 2 Release Date For Nintendo Switch Revealed
Wolfenstein on Switch is nearly here.
We've known Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is coming to Nintendo Switch for a while now, but until this point we didn't know precisely when. Now, publisher Bethesda has announced the shooter's port launches on June 29.
The Switch version will be the "complete, uncensored" game, according to Bethesda, and the company has just released the first official gameplay footage of the game running on Nintendo's hybrid console. Take a look at that above.
The port is being handled by Panic Button, the same studio responsible for bringing another visually intensive first-person shooter, Doom, to Switch. We got our first hands-on opportunity with the Switch version of Wolfenstein II at PAX East 2018 earlier this month; you can see how the game looks running in docked mode here.
We learned recently that the physical Switch version of The New Colossus will require an additional download to run. This is not uncommon for Switch games, but it may mean you'll need a micro SD card to play the cartridge version. The port costs $60 in the US, with international pricing yet to be revealed.
Wolfenstein II originally released in October 2017 and was one of the most acclaimed games of the year. GameSpot's Kallie Plagge awarded it a 9/10 in our Wolfenstein II review and said, "Despite some heavy-handed moments that feel like missteps in its message, satisfying Nazi-killing action bolsters its completely bonkers storyline in a way that only Wolfenstein can achieve."
