Doom 64 Returns from the Dead on the Nintendo Switch
The classic 1997 title will have a second life on Nintendo’s hybrid console.

We now have confirmation that the classic game, Doom 64, which released for the Nintendo 64 back in 1997, is headed to the Nintendo Switch this coming November in honor of the series’ 25th anniversary. The announcement was made this week at a Nintendo Direct presentation and then posted to the DOOM series’ social media accounts. Check it out below.
Whether this is coming to other consoles remains to be seen, but it certainly is within the realm of possibility. Doom 64 was a sequel to Doom II (aka Doom II: Hell on Earth) and was different from the original PC version with a similar name, which was simply titled Doom. The original Doom 64 was developed by the now defunct Midway Games and had 32 playable levels. In addition to a new playing experience, it also boasted a fresh and creepy soundtrack by Aubrey Hodges.
