    Winner of 200+ Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim® arrives on the Nintendo Switch console. The open-world adventure from Bethesda Game Studios® where you can virtually be anyone and do anything, now allows you to go anywhere—at home and on the go. New features include motion controls, gear based on the Legend of Zelda™ series, and amiibo™ compatibility.

    Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned and the future of Skyrim hangs in the balance. As Dragonborn, the prophesized hero born with the power of The Voice, you are the only one who can stand against them.

    Live another life, in another world—from battling ancient dragons, exploring rugged mountains, building a home, or mastering hundreds of weapons, spells and abilities. For the first time ever, go into battle Legend of Zelda style: fight with the Master Sword, guard with the Hylian Shield, while wearing the Champion’s Tunic.

    Features:
    • Includes all content from official add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
    • Uncover the mystery behind the return of the dragons in a massive open world to explore any way you choose.
    • Create your own custom character and do virtually anything you want.
    • Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. The character system allows you to play the way you like and define yourself through your actions.
    • Your decisions matter in a world that changes dynamically based on your choices.

    Exclusive new features:
    Motion controls:
    • Use motion controls to battle with melee weapons, aim your bow, or pick locks, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
    amiibo compatibility:
    • Tap compatible Legend of Zelda™ character amiibo™ figures (sold separately) once daily for the chance to gain gear inspired by the series. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian shield, and feel heroic in the Champion’s Tunic!
    • Tap other compatible amiibo figures to receive a chest of loot, exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

    "Use motion controls to battle with melee weapons, aim your bow, or pick locks, exclusively on Nintendo Switch."

    That's the neatest feature about the Switch version assuming it's executed well, since no-mod Skyrim combat is boring as hell.

    At least with joy cons there's a good possibility of just bouncing off the screen unharmed because of how light they are relative to wiimotes. :lol:

    No mod support..... well, I'll be skipping this. That was the only thing I was waiting for, and it would have made the Switch version perfect. Fuck the motion features, they'll be used once and that's about it.

    The site isn't even finalized, there is no confirmation that states there won't be mods or not, why can't people just wait ffs? Or just mod the damn PC port.

    Yeah, I don't buy into this line of thinking, even it's the way some developers want to do things. Give me games I want to play and I'll buy them. I want to play DOOM(4) on Switch, not a six-year-old game with meh combat. I won't be blackmailed into buying Skyrim, a game I've already bought and played to contentment, for the better possibility of DOOM(4) on Switch. I'm the consumer, it's my money, I hold the power in this situation.

    You are really expecting mods in a Nintendo game? Get real...

    Well, it's not a Nintendo game, and Bethesda is pretty stingy about mods on consoles to begin with, so yeah. I don't even mind that mods aren't available on Switch, things should be simplified for a hybrid console. The issue is that the vanilla game isn't that great to begin with, not that mods and other gameplay changes can (somewhat) fix it. I 100% would've preferred a Morrowind remaster or Fallout 3/New Vegas remaster, but more likely they would've given us FO4, the worst of that series.

    There was no game on any console with mod support until only very recently. And I don't have a PS4 or XB1, so I don't know how limited that support is compared to PC, either.

    Well there's rumours about Fallout 4 coming to the Switch. It was put up on some game site as a preorder, but nothing else's been confirmed.

    Or we can wait a bit longer to see whether or not instead of speculating ad infinitum? Sound good? Good.

    There is no mods for Switch Skyrim as far as we know. Most likely there will not be. I can't wait for someone to decrypt this game so I can extract the amiibo armor and make a mod out of it. I know there are already mods for this probably, but this one is by Bethesda so it will probably be really nice. As long as the game doesn't have some special format for the Switch like a Switch header for the files. I don't think they would do that though. I am excited! :)
