This should please a few people on here. The latest patch has added gyro aiming to the game.

I've just updated DOOM and I'll try out the motion controls a little later. The menu icon has now changed to reflect the boxart, which is what I wanted all along!

Just tried out the new controls! OH MY GOD YES!!! They're EXACTLY what I wanted! :D

 

They work SO damn well! I want these controls for ALL FPS games on Switch! They work just as well as you'd hope they would!

 

This is how it should've been from the beginning! The only thing that's a bit of a shame is that you can't have the glory kills mapped to a shake of the controller and have gyro aiming at the same time for some silly reason.  Hope they fix that, because that would work very very well if they do... (even if it's mapped to the other Joy-con!)

 

The game also seems to be running at a higher resolution now too; it's especially noticeable in handheld mode! The text is a lot more readable now :D

Full update notes! (most important bit is in bold!)

Get ready to blast through demons on-the-go in new ways thanks to a brand-new game update for DOOM, arriving today on Nintendo Switch. With today’s update, we’ve added Motion Aiming to DOOM, a much-requested control option that allows you to utilize the built-in gyroscope of the Joy-Con for more precise aiming. The option can be used in conjunction with traditional aiming using the controller’s analog stick for the perfect blend of immersion and accuracy.

For multiplayer fans, we’ve made it even easier to group up and play with your friends. We’ve added a new party system to DOOM multiplayer, so you can easily get your friends together and throw down with foes.

We know how important the game icon is to Nintendo Switch fans, so we wanted to give ours an upgrade. With today’s update, you’ll now see a shiny new game icon to match the game’s boxart – as seen on the main menu of the Nintendo Switch below. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Along with the new features, we’ve implemented several fixes to make the game better. Below are the full patch notes of what’s included in the new update:

Such a fun game, it deserves more sales, especially so given this ongoing support!

I've always intended to get it but there are other games above it on my list, will definitely pick it up soon though!

Now I'm tempted. Might have to give this a go now that I'll be able to actually aim.

It is on my list, just waiting for the new "tax" law to kick in in my country.

How much did it sell actually?

Aww. I actually really liked the original icon.

Lol same.  It was hilariously metal!

Personally much prefer the new icon. Sounds like a great update, I think analog stick + gyro precision aiming is the way to go for console FPS

The post doesn’t mention it but I assume gyro also works with the Pro controller?

I might pick this up when it’s cheap, I do like the motion aiming in Splatoon but that’s deliberately not a very vertical game, would be curious to see how it works in an FPS.

 

Old Wii style pointer aiming was pretty shite though so pleased it’s not a return to that.

I just got this game and I have to say that this is a brilliant port.

The game's pace isn't at all what I expected. I thought this was supposed to be a super-quick old-school shooter, but I actually found it most playable with a more reserved pace.
