Skyrim Roars Onto The Nintendo Switch Today

Bethesda has released the long-awaited Nintendo Switch version of 2011’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It has been five years since the original release of Skyrim on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but the Nintendo Switch version does see several improvements from last year’s Skyrim: Special Edition. This means that the Switch version of Skyrim runs on a modified version of the 64-bit Fallout 4 engine and can make use of the system’s full 4GB of ram. As well Skyrim for Switch also includes the Dawnguard, Dragon Born and Hearth Fire DLC add-ons right on the cartridge. 

A few Nintendo specific treats are also available that might interest those who are returning to Tamriel- Link’s Master Sword, Hylian Shield and Champions Tunic from the Legend of Zelda series are obtainable exclusively in this version of the game.  

With the release of Skyrim on Switch every game from the original Nintendo Switch reveal video has been released!😀
