The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has made the game available to play during the Comic-Con event, and everyone can stop by the San Diego Convention Center and try Skyrim, as well as other popular titles, on Switch until July 23rd.
A YouTuber, known as Filip, published a video that provides the Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim fans with a glimpse at the game, played on Nintendo Switch. As seen from the video, the Skyrim runs quite smoothly on the console. The YouTube user comments that the frame rate drops were not frequent and overall, the controls for the game translated well over the Joy-Con controllers.
The video confirms that Skyrim will be a great addition to the Switch library.Players will be able to take advantage of optional motion controls, Zelda costumes, a lockpicking mechanic, as well as Amiibo compatibility.
During the E3 event, held earlier this year, Bethesda presented a Skyrim Switch trailer where a player used the motion controls of the joycons to block with a shield, attack with a sword, and fire off arrows toward a dragon.
As for the Amiibo functionality, it enables players to unlock new items. When the Amiibo is scanned into the console, a chest will appear and players will be able to unlock the Master Sword, a Hylian Shield as well as an outfit that allows the in-game character to cosplay as Link. It remains uncertain whether Bethesda will provide any other method of unlocking these items aside from Amiibo.
For the time being, there is no release date for Skyrim Switch, but people familiar with the matter suggest that it will be launched during the 2017 holiday season.
The RealGear team remains committed to informing you promptly when Bethesda reveals more information about Skyrim Switch arrival and specifications.
