You can now pick up the five-game Doom Slayers Collection on Switch

Includes Doom 1, 2, 3, 64, and 2016.

Switch-owning fans of demon murder (who somehow still haven't played id Software's legendary Doom saga) are in luck; as part of this year's QuakeCon, id has announced a five-game Doom Slayers Collection for Nintendo's console, which is available to purchase now.

The reveal isn't too much of a surprise - US retailer Best Buy successfully managed to leak the Doom Slayers Collection for Switch earlier today ahead of its official reveal - but the game's immediate post-announcement launch most certainly was, and Switch players can now enjoy some demon-hued FPS japes all in one bundle, featuring seminal 1993 original Doom, Doom 2, Doom 64, Doom 3, and 2016's sort-of-rebooted Doom.

Notably, that's one more game than was featured in the Doom Slayers Collection for Xbox and PlayStation, which released toward the end of last year minus Doom 64 - a pleasant treat for Switch owners, based on Digital Foundry's previous enthusiasm for the port.

The Doom Slayers Collection is out on Switch's eShop right now and costs £33.59/$34.99 USD. Additionally, Switch players eager for the arrival of Doom Eternal's The Ancient Gods: Part 2 have a new trailer to tide them over ahead of its launch next Thursday, 26th August.
