Skyrim’s Not Officially Confirmed For the Nintendo Switch


Nintendo revealed the Switch console today with a sharp three-minute trailer showing its ability to transform into multiple modes.

Several games were shown during this trailer including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a new Mario game, one or another Mario Kart, Splatoon, and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. 

Nintendo is the only platform holder not to host an Elder Scrolls (or Fallout) game and with the Skyrim Special Edition HD remaster coming out now, it seems like a good candidate to add to the Switch’s launch line-up.

Unfortunately, neither Nintendo or Bethesda will say whether it’s happening or not. “We’re happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch,” Bethesda told GamesIndustry. “We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future.”

Nintendo’s own statement from the official Switch reads,

“Today’s video incorporated short glimpses of representative gameplay to demonstrate the liberating nature of the Nintendo Switch home gaming system. Full game demonstrations, the list of launch window titles, as well as launch date, price, product configuration and related specifics, will be shown and announced prior to the March launch.”
