#SDCC17: Kneel Before Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch

Published

on

It’s been nearly six years since the world was blessed with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and I’m still confident in saying that it’s one of the best video games ever made. If you have yet to experience Bethesda’s masterpiece (you must hate having fun), I suggest you pick up the Nintendo Switch version when it releases later this year.

You might also want to buy a Nintendo Switch just to play Skyrim because it really is one of the few games worthy of a console purchase in itself.

IGN was lucky enough to preview the Switch version of Skyrim at San Diego Comic-Con, whilst YouTuber FILIP also uploaded an extended gameplay video taken at the event. Watch both videos below, and prepare to once again bid farewell to your social life.

Game Details
Live another life in another world in the legendary open-world masterpiece from Bethesda Game Studios.

Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the epic fantasy from Bethesda Game Studios, arrives for Nintendo Switch. The legendary open-world adventure, where you can be anyone and do anything, now allows you to play anywhere – at home on your TV or on the go. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch console includes all-new exclusive features like motion control for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda franchise, and amiibo compatibility. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield, or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. Skyrim also includes all official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come: a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Features:

  • Live another life in another world: Play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want: defeat dragons, explore dungeons, interact with the people of the world, build a house, start a family, and master skills, spells, and weapons. Set your own pace in a world that alters dynamically based on your choices.
  • Stunning graphics and immersive gameplay: Skyrim brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, flowing rivers, and ancient dungeons.
  • You are what you play: Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. Play any way you want and define your character through your actions.
  • Gain gear Inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Tap compatible Legend of Zelda character amiibo figures (sold separately) to gain outfits and gear inspired by the series. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian shield, or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Legend of Zelda amiibo figures include 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.
  • Motion controls: Use all-new motion controls exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version: battle with melee weapons, aim your bow, or pick locks.
  • amiibo compatible: Tap compatible amiibo figures to receive a chest of loot, also exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version.
