Out of nowhere, developer Panic Button has released DOOM Switch patch 1.1.2 which offers increased performance on Nintendo’s hybrid platform.
As DOOM celebrated its 25th anniversary yesterday, Panic Button announced the new 1.1.2 patch on Twitter. Aside from increased performance, the update also adds video capture to the Switch version and allows players to add recent players to their friends list.
DOOM Switch patch 1.1.2 changes:

- Video capture
- Option to add recent players to friends list
Ported by the studio responsible for the Switch version of Rocket League, DOOM for the Nintendo Switch was released back in November of last year.
DOOM returns on the Nintendo Switch as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes.
Staffed by a team that includes fans of the franchise, and longtime fans of Nintendo, Panic Button worked closely with id Software and its proprietary idTech® engine to bring the core shooter to Nintendo’s newest console.
Building on Panic Button's long-time development experience and unique expertise with the hardware, DOOM for Nintendo Switch represents a key success in Panic Button’s strategic growth.
“When you look at Panic Button’s portfolio, you’ll see a definitive story over the last six years, as we increasingly add high-visibility, high-caliber titles,” said Adam Creighton, Studio Head for Panic Button. “DOOM is a revolutionary first-person shooter that inspired a genre and cemented itself as part of the pop culture landscape. We’re grateful to be part of bringing it to a new audience.”
“DOOM for Nintendo Switch wouldn’t exist without DOOM, so we wanted to bring id Software’s shooter to the hardware in a way that made them and Bethesda proud,” Creighton said. “We’re thrilled for Nintendo fans, shooter fans, or anyone who loves unfiltered gameplay experiences to play DOOM on Switch.”
