Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus from Machine Games and Bethesda Softworks is already available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Aside from releasing brand-new titles every now and then, Bethesda is bringing many of their popular titles for next gen console Nintendo Switch. Back in September, 2017, we heard news about them having port Doom and Wolfenstein II for Nintendo Switch. The former made its Switch debut and not it's time for the latter.

The trailer above shows exactly how you can expect your Wolfenstein II will play out in Switch and so far, it looks pretty flawless. The publisher previously launched another of their first-person shooter game Doom by working with Panic Button and it played out very well, except for some occasional struggle of keeping up the 720p resolution. Case of dropping frames per second below 30 was also reported but we believe the game could even run on this portable console is a wonder itself.

Just like id Software’s Doom, action-adventure first-person shooter Wolfenstein II runs on run on same engine and as Bethesda has cracked out the formula of perfectly porting games to Switch without any major issues, we shouldn't worry much about it except for how many days we still have to wait to get our hands on it. Whatever minor compromise made in terms of gameplay performance and visual for jumping to a new platform is still acceptable to us many for the sake of playing it.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus follows protagonist BJ Blazkowicz, who is back in business to fight the Nazi regime out of America to deliver freedom to his people. On top of that, Wolfenstein II port is a complete uncensored version this time as Nintendo is not forcing to sensor the game to make it more family-friendly but leave it as it is. Over the top Nazi-killing fest surrounded by great story has even won “Best Action Game” title for the game at The Game Awards last year.
