    Were those Godrays?, Graphics are looking good, I think this version is being made using Special Edition's graphical engine.

    Looks pretty interesting. Not sure how the framerate will be compared to other systems though.

    If it plays smoothly enough I might pick it up.

    Just what I always wanted in an elder scrolls. Nintendo gimmicks; pointless motion controls, support for those stupid action figures and cross franchise appearances.

    EDIT: Whoops, already in the OP.

    Anyway, judging by the trailer, it seems like the game will reach 60 fps in some instances.

    They should release Fallout 4 Remastered for Switch with variations of the Metroid Power Suit as power armor pieces. Also a pet baby metroid.

    Why are you guys complaining? this opens up a door between bethesda and nintendo. not only that but Skyrim to go. without an internet connection required or a heavy or awkward laptop. and likely mod support which likely would be eating up space on your switch's sd card. still the graphics are decent fro a portable version.

    It's a good way to gauge interest, at least. I'm probably not going to buy it for a fourth time, given that it lacks full mod support and the Special Edition has done nothing to fix the myriad engine bugs. But people have been clamoring for a real portable Elder Scrolls experience since even before the failed attempt to bring Oblivion to the PSP, and the average laptop certainly isn't nearly as portable or as smooth of an experience for Skyrim.

    Look at what's currently topping the switch charts
    http://nintendoeverything.com/switch-eshop-charts-6817/

    And before, minecraft. Of course.
    People don't mind rehashes. Familiarity sells.

    i've never bought skyrim new, only used for a few bucks. this will be my first full purchase. sad there won't be any mods for nude...coloured clothing *cough*. but hey, it'll be fun to lockpick with motion controls or something. i do enjoy shooting things with bow/arrow/motion control at the edge of range. it's fuuun.

    Does this mean I can cross Nintendo Switch off of my bingo card?

    Omg I love this ! When I grab a Switch this will be on my list along side Minecraft (due to the unified update they told today giving infinite worlds ) and of course Zelda BOTW .. Wow looks nice and we get the DLC sweet!

    Methinks docked 60 fps, undocked 30 fps. That's damn impressive for a console port.


    To the haters, hate on :creep:

    You do realize that by wasting time on another port there's no signs of elder scrolls 6 in the foreseeable future right?
