DOOM, DOOM 2, and DOOM 3 land on Nintendo Switch today with surprise launch

Update: All three DOOM titles are now readily available for purchase on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The titles have also been released today on Xbox One and PS4.

Original story: In a surprise move by Bethesda and Nintendo, DOOM, DOOM 2, and DOOM 3 are all being stealth launched on the Nintendo Switch eShop today.

As the news broke, all three titles were available to purchase on Nintendo's website, in the UK at least. As of right now, the links that previously led to information about the games and purchase options have been disabled. So someone clearly pulled the trigger a bit too soon. When the games inevitably go back online at some point today, you'll be able to find them all right here.

We do know, however, that the games will all be available for a reasonable price, with DOOM and DOOM 2 coming in at a delicious £3.99, and DOOM 3 costing £7.99.

Each game will release with their respective expansion packs, and local multiplayer options.

There's a good reason for Bethesda to launch the classic titles today, as QuakeCon 2019 has kicked off in Dallas, Texas. These releases are clearly aimed at drumming up interest for November 22nd's DOOM Eternal.
