DOOM Nintendo Switch Adds Motion Control Support

DOOM for Nintendo Switch has just received a new update for the title – adding a host of new features to the first-person shooter.

One of the most interesting features (and widely requested), is the introduction of motion controls to the title. The gyroscopic controls should allow for faster shooting in this already faced paced game, than the current joy-con controls that players have been using.

A new party system for the game’s multiplayer has also been introduced, which should make it easier for payers to find each other. The icon for the game on the Switch home screen has also been updated, giving fans a little bit more of that aesthetic pleasure.

You can check out the full patch notes below:
