BOSTON — Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus provided some much-needed catharsis in a difficult time for the American public. In an era when mainstream American society began to tolerate — even embrace — neo-Nazis, Wolfenstein II put its foot down and said, “No.” The game is 12 hours of unapologetically brutalizing Nazis in order to save an alternate-history United States, and now folks will be able to play it wherever they go.

I played a level from Wolfenstein II on the Switch at PAX East 2018, and the port seems completely faithful to the existing versions of the game. Despite the fact that it suffers from a few problems common to third-party switch games — the interface is not really optimized for a six-inch touchscreen — it’s a perfectly serviceable way to take one of 2017’s most acclaimed games with you.
