I can't imagine how the image quality will look on the Switch but the short video they showed looked good, albeit blurry.

Here is a comparison between the Switch version and the PS4 version. Does not look bad at all...

Yea but that doesn't tell us a whole lot about the resolution, framerate, etc (although the framerate looked good, maybe even 60fps). One thing Switch has going for it is support for Vulkan and more modern APIs than PS4, which Doom uses; so it's quite possible they are able to optimize well at a low level for the hardware.

Me too, fellow Switch owner.

I'm split between buying this and streaming it via Rainway, if Rainway launches on time as it's meant to. My PC could run this game at max settings. Still the Switch native version only looks slightly downgraded from PS4 which is encouraging.
