VIDEO: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim E3 2017 Trailer
We’ve known about the existence of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch since the original Switch reveal teaser back in October of 2016. However, since then we haven’t seen anything on the game, but that all changed tonight at Bethesda’s E3 presentation.
As you can see from the trailer, Skyrim not only looks great on the Switch, but it has some enhancements. It’s compatible with Breath of the Wild amiibo, which can give you treasure chests and things like Link’s blue tunic, the Master Sword, and Shield. In addition, players can utilize the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers for motion actions. This looks to be completely optional, but it’s a nice addition for those that want to use them.
We hope to see more at the show. No word on exact release date at time of this article, but Bethesda did say everything they showed tonight will come out this year. When we find out an exact date we’ll let you know!
