Doom 64

In a rather unexpected turn of events, Limited Run Games has put up a preorder for a physical version of Doom 64 for Nintendo Switch and PS4. This is a lovely piece of hyper-violent, demonic video game history that no fan of retro games should be without.

Recently, Super Mario 64 came to Switch as part of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection (which also got a physical release), and Star Wars Episode I: Racer is on Switch (with a physical edition via Limited Run). And don’t forget that Turok 1 and 2 are also on Switch (once again, with physical editions by Limited Run). Clearly, the Swich’s N64 lineup is really starting to take shape.

Like many of Limited Run’s physical game editions, this one actually has super-duper special editions for both PS4 and Switch. These will cost you a bit more, but they include all this stuff:

  • Physical Doom 64 game in a standard case for Nintendo Switch or PS4
  • Full-color manual
  • Full-color interior case art
  • Premium foil embossed classic edition N64 throwback box
  • Heavy metal commemorative (non-functioning) retro cart
  • Behind-the-scenes booklet
  • Reversible 18″ x 24″ poster 

If you really want to go all-out on a Doom-inspired shopping spree, there’s a collection of all Limited Run’s Doom 64 merchandise (a pretty gigantic heap of stuff) in what they’re calling the Doom Slayer Bundle.

This bundle is selling out quickly, so get on it now if you want one.

Here’s a link to the basic Switch listing, and here’s a link to the basic PS4 listing.

This is a wonderful addition to the Limited Run library, and I’m quite excited to have Doom 64 on my Switch (I almost never do digital-only games on Switch). I hope this whole N64-on-Switch trend keeps rolling, because I would love to see titles like Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the handheld console at some point. Limited Run did do a retro re-release of Shadows last year, and Zelda’s 35th anniversary is coming up, so this doesn’t seem outside the realm of possibility.

A man can dream, right?
