Panic Button, the studio that ported Doom to the Switch earlier this year, is porting Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to the Nintendo Switch, according to Bethesda.

When talking to GameReactor, MachineGames' Andreas Öjerfors said that Panic Button has experience using id Tech 6 on the Switch and thus is Bethesda's trusted partner for moving these games over. Additionally, Bethesda clarified that the game is coming in early 2018, so Switch fans looking forward to the title shouldn't have to wait too long.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus released on October 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read our review for that version here, A Switch port was announced during a Nintendo Direct in September, but gameplay footage hasn't been shown yet.

Our Take
Doom on Switch took a bigger framerate hit than I would have liked, but it was still a huge task. Wolfenstein II is a bit slower, or at least intended to be slower, than Doom, so a framerate hit might not be as bad. I'm hoping it looks as close as possible.
