Bethesda has announced that Wolfenstein II: New Colossus is being ported to Nintendo Switch by Panic Button. The game should be ready to go in early 2018.
Panic Button is the same company that brought DOOM to Switch earlier in 2017. With its experience using “id Tech 6” for Switch, Bethesda has named them a trusted partner. Machine Games developer Andreas Ojerfors said, “They’re experts at the Switch and now they’re experts with the id Tech 6 engine, so we work with them, and the DOOM version really turned out to be kick-ass on the Switch, so I think New Colossus will be the same.”

Here’s what the game is all about:
The Mission: Liberate America from the Nazis
Strap in for a heart-pounding journey as you fight the Nazi war machine on American soil. As BJ Blazkowicz, protect your family and friends, forge new alliances and face the demons of your troubled past as you rally pockets of resistance to overthrow the Nazi occupation.
The People: Rally the Resistance
Immerse yourself in a world brought to life by unforgettable characters who bring a new level of personality to the franchise. Reunite with your friends and fellow freedom fighters such as Anya, Caroline, Bombate, Set, Max Hass, Fergus or Wyatt, and befriend new characters such as Horton and Grace as you take on the evil Frau Engel and her Nazi army.
The Arsenal: Wield Devastating Guns and Future Tech
Blast Nazis to bits with high-tech weaponry such as the Laserkraftwerk, a multi-purpose, high-intensity laser weapon that can disintegrate enemies, or the Dieselkraftwerk, a rapid-fire, gas-powered grenade launcher that can devastate groups of enemies, or get up close and personal with advanced pistols, submachine guns, and hatchets. When you need a little more versatility, upgrade and dual-wield your favorite guns!
The Plan: Kill Every Nazi in Your Way
Everyone’s favorite pastime! Unleash your inner war hero as you annihilate Nazis in new and hyper-violent ways. Lock and load futuristic guns and discover BJ’s new set of abilities as you fight to free America. Regardless of your playstyle, invent all-new ways of stabbing, shooting, and killing Nazis.
