Panic Button teases more Switch projects in the works

DOOM on Nintendo Switch Gets New Update Adding Motion Controls, Party Support, and More Doom gets motion controls on the Nintendo Switch (update)

Motion controls and their relative sensitivity can be altered in the options menu whenever you like, meaning they're totally optional to the experience. So far, Nintendo has been the reigning king in this arena, what with its excellent Wii hardware. "Now every developer wants their game to be on the Switch". This updated option of "motion aiming", present in the menu, is quite similar to the motion controls in Splatoon 2.

DOOM on Nintendo Switch has been available for some time now, and if demon-killing on-the-go has lost its appeal a bit in the past few weeks, a new update for the Switch version of the game should give some entertaining new ways to blast demons. Following this formula, Doom's motion control is about as close to the ideal fit as the arrangement has ever come.

DOOM on Nintendo Switch updated to include a cool new feature

The new feature is already pretty self-explanatory, but just to be clear, it allows players to aim in Doom by tilting and moving the right Joy-Con around. The people behind Doom simply wanted it to function well enough that it actually made sense and based on the reactions so far, it does. Bethesda has also added in Multiplayer Parties to make it easier for players to team up with their friends in multiplayer. Alongside gyro support, this patch also finds a massive improvement to the party system as well as a number of other technical improvements underneath the hood.

The developers even made changes to the icon so that it's now much closer to what's seen on the box art for the Switch.
