DOOM, the latest entry in the series developed by id Software, is hitting Nintendo Switch in all regions next month, but it’s been confirmed that the game will not be taking advantage of all of the console’s unique features, such as motion controls. However, it seems like they will be available in the game, sadly only in a limited capacity.

Earlier today, a new gameplay video emerged online, and the game’s controls settings feature an option for motion controls. According to Nintendo World Report, however, they’re not for gyro aiming, but only to perform melee attacks or Glory Kills. A missed opportunity, for sure.

If you want to learn more about DOOM on Nintendo Switch, you can check out a fresh developer interview where all of the game’s unique features are fleshed out.

In a new id Software developer video released today by Nintendo, creative director Hugo Martin and executive producer Marty Stratton discuss the many features that players will experience in DOOM on Nintendo Switch, including the full single-player campaign (with all difficulty modes), Arcade Mode, and the entire suite of Multiplayer maps and modes, including all previously released DLC content. They also go into further depth about working with developer Panic Button to ensure DOOM on Nintendo Switch feels as fast, brutal, and true to the experience gamers have loved on other platforms.

DOOM launches on Nintendo Switch on November 10th.
