This Friday, the next chapter in the Wolfenstein series hits store shelves and digital storefronts with Wolfenstein: Youngblood. It takes a different approach than previous releases, taking a trip to the 80’s and following the two young daughters of B.J. Blazkowicz as they attempt to put their own hurt on the Nazi regime.
Like Wolfenstein II, the game will be released for several platforms, including digitally on the Nintendo Switch. And like last time, Panic Button is once again handling the port for the developers at Machine Games. And, once again, the team is doing an amazing job with the port.
Jerk Gustafsson recently spoke with VentureBeat about the work the team had done with the Nintendo Switch version of the game, following their effort on other versions of Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Order, which they also did for Bethesda. He noted, “I’m always impressed by the guys at Panic Button, that they can accomplish things like that. It’s a miracle. We’re pushing the engine pretty hard in this game. Of course we did that for New Colossus as well. These guys are magicians. It’s a great honor to be able to work with them. I’m very happy that we can get Youngblood on Switch.”
While some fans are disappointed that Youngblood doesn’t have a physical cartridge option this time around, it doesn’t take up too much massive space on the download front. Sure, it does need around 21GB, which is still meaty. But you can probably upgrade to around 128GB, 256GB or even 400GB and have lots of room for some Nazi killing for you and a friend, yeah?
Check out the impressive work this Friday when Wolfenstein: Youngblood arrives for the Nintendo Switch, as well as Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
