Nintendo Switch - Skyrim in a Cab
Skyrim in a Cab

While this may not be huge news to most, it is to Nintendo’s core fan base. During today’s Nintendo Switch reveal, a certain Bethesda title had a solid showing. Skyrim is coming to Nintendo’s new console. And not only that, but Nintendo used it prominently to display how versatile the Switch is.

But Is It What We Expect?

It was very savvy of Nintendo to use just a respected hardcore 3rd party title like Skyrim to show off the new system’s versatility. You can play Switch’s Skyrim on a plane…

There’s even Skyrim on your Couch!

While Nintendo did a great job of showing the many ways the Switch can be brought into your lives, we know little else about it. Specifically from a technical standpoint. We have no idea what the guts of this new console hold. Thus, we have no idea how it can handle massive games like this that run relatively smoothly on a Xbox One Scorpio or PlayStation 4 Pro.

Is the Skyrim we see in today’s trailer the same The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition that is poised for an October release on Xbox and PlayStation? Or, like Nintendo’s previous consoles, is this a dumbed down version of a 3rd party game? Let’s hope for the former. And hey, there’s always a chance that it’s better than the version on the other two consoles. Bethesda will have an extra 6 months to work on it after all. A fanboy can dream…
