Two of the Newest Port Additions to Nintendo Switch

Posted on December 12, 2020 at 10:27 pm

Lately several games have been released for gameplay on the Nintendo Switch. Two of these exciting new port additions are:

DOOM Eternal

This game, whilst only being relatively new (with a release in March 2020) is completely new to the Nintendo Switch platform and has been released as a port and one of the few good first-person shooters available to Nintendo consoles. The Switch is unique to its predecessors with regards to first person shooters wherein they are practically non-existent for Wii and Wii U.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

The second exciting port game to come to Switch came as a surprise announcement earlier this year and took quite a bit of hard-work and dedication to make possible. Developers wanted to ensure the graphics were not compromised to the point of not being able to give the game the quality of visuals that are expected of this series.

It will contain all the latest updates, including The Mogul Update, the Full Tank Update and several other important improvements.

It will come with both 50hz and 60hz, NTSC and PAL outputs as well as being supported on the Wii Remote, Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Controller Pro and GameCube Controller. It can also be played entirely on the GamePad with touch control.
