Publisher New Blood Interactive announced the retro first-person shooter, Dusk, is coming to the Nintendo Switch. 

 Here is an overview of the game:

Dusk reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered if you’re to survive ’til dawn. Inspired by Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your ’90s favorites, and featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult.

In THREE distinct campaign episodes hand-crafted from straight outta the ’90s, players battle through an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces and attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth. Featuring a vast arsenal of badass weaponry including saw blades, dual-wielded shotguns from 1887 and an incredibly necessary grenade launcher, Dusk is unapologetic retro action from start to finish.

In addition to the main campaign, Dusk features an Endless Survival Mode, putting you front and center of wave after wave of enemies. For those looking for an extra challenge, Dusk also offers the chance to go head to head online to battle your friends in DuskWorld arena multiplayer, where darkness hosts the worst of humanity in surprising new ways.

This is fantastic news!!! Got this on Steam earlier this year and it reminded me of classic DOOM, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, and Goldeneye 007! If you love 90's shooters, you owe it to yourself to play this! Both Single Player and Multiplayer are great!

That makes me wonder, with Bethesda closer to Nintendo than ever, could we see the classic Doom and Wolfenstein games on the Switch? Doom was on the SNES and GBA, so it's not like it's unprecedented.
