The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the defining games from Bethesda. A version of the game was always destined to come to the Nintendo Switch, and we saw some more details concerning that version during the developer’s E3 conference.

SKYRIM FOR THE NINTENDO SWITCH SUPPORTS AMIIBO

The enormous open world of Skyrim will hold a few features exclusive to the Switch’s iteration. Notably, Nintendo’s Zelda-themed amiibo figurines will bestow bonus to their yielders. Scanning a Link amiibo, for example, will grant you Link’s Breath of the Wild attire, Hylian Shield and Master Sword.

Furthermore, Skyrim will function with the Joy-Con controllers’ motion controls, offering a unique flair to this version of the game. If this is your first time playing the game or its DLC, this can give you a new way to experience Skyrim.

Bethesda’s official description for the latest Skyrim release can be seen below:

“The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch includes all-new gameplay features like motion controls for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch also includes all official add-ons: DawnguardHearthfire and Dragonborn. Plus tap other compatible amiibo to gain additional loot including those from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series, 30th Anniversary – The Legend of Zelda series, Super Smash Bros. series, and The Legend of Zelda series.”

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will land on the Nintendo Switch during the fall season.
