Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Switch Version Includes Gyro-Based Motion Controls

Nazi-slaying requires special consideration when it comes to game controls, obviously. 


Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is making its way to Nintendo Switch this June, so if you missed out on it on consoles and PC last year, now's your time to jump on it. The Switch version is being headed up by studio Panic Button with guidance from MachineGames, and it should be an excellent little downsized version of the shooter.

But one thing that'll set it apart from the regular console and PC version is the fact that you can enable "Motion Aiming" for gyro controls that make it even easier for you to spray the entire room with bullets -- or fire, whatever floats your boat (or finds your lost remote). This was an issue with the DOOM release on Switch. Previously, fans were more than a little upset that they couldn't use gyro controls on Switch at launch, so Bethesda is making sure that's taken care of this time around.

If you're planning to grab the game on Switch, let us know how you end up liking this very important addition. It's definitely going to add another dimension to the game, that's for sure.
