Bethesda showed off The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch at E3 2017. The game was teased at Nintendo’s Switch reveal and announced soon after.

Skyrim is one of the world’s most popular role-playing games known for letting you do crazy things such as slaying a dragon with your bare hands and losing your thirst for adventure after taking an arrow to the knee. You can read our in-depth review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition to figure out what the game’s all about.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch did not get a release date, but Bethesda said that everything announced at its event will be released in 2017. This means that Nintendo fans can expect yet another great game to release on the Switch this year. There’s a small chance that this is one of the games which will get a release date at Nintendo Direct on June 13.


If you are wondering what’s new in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch, then you can expect excellent optimisation for motion controls via Joy-Cons. The reveal video showed someone moving Joy-Cons to draw a bow and fire an arrow, and performing other actions using motion controls.

Bethesda says the game has new motion controls for lockpicking and combat. It also has gear and attire from The Legend of Zelda. If you want to don your heroic Champion’s Tunic, wield the Master Sword, or use the Hylian Shield, you can do all of that in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch. Bethesda says all official addons including Dawnguard, Dragonborn, and Hearthfire are also included in the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

The game also supports some amiibo that lets you gain loot from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Smash Bros., and more.
