New Skyrim features for a new console.
At Bethesda's E3 2017 press conference, the publisher shared more details about the Skyrim port on Nintendo Switch. Most notably, the game will have Amiibo support, unlocking various items in the game.
Scanning particular Zelda Amiibo figures will unlock the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Champion's Tunic. Additionally, you'll be able to use the Joy-Cons' motion controls to shoot your bow and arrow and pick locks. The Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn expansions are all included.
The port on Switch seems to be giving Elder Scrolls fans reasons to spend even more time with the critically acclaimed RPG. Other Elder Scrolls-related announcements include a Skyrim expansion for Elder Scrolls Legends.
