Quakecon 2019 is kicking off, and Bethesda stealth launched a handful of classic Doom games onto the Switch to celebrate 25 years of ripping and tearing.
Doom Slayer's full bloody, demon-massacring saga is now on the Switch, which is a surprising turn for the family-oriented handheld. Every big mainline Doom game is now available on the Nintendo Switch's eShop: Doom ($4.99), Doom II ($4.99), Doom 3 ($9.99), and Doom 2016 ($59.99). And of course this year's huge heaven-smashing FPS Doom Eternal is coming to the Switch too, with double the demons in tow.
Both Doom and Doom II come with local 4-player co-op and multiplayer for old-school skull-smashing chaos, and the games are quite tiny at about 290MB and won't require any huge downloads. There's also expansions and bonuses levels thrown in for good measure.
All of the games are also available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as iOS and Android too.
