The Version Of Skyrim For Nintendo Switch Is Still Unknown
Will it be the Special Edition or something else? Todd Howard says he "can't say."
One of the biggest-name third-party games confirmed for the Nintendo Switch this year is Bethesda's acclaimed open-world RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. But is Nintendo's new console getting 2016's Special Edition or some other form of the game?
The version of Skyrim for Switch could be a port of the 2011 original, the remastered 2016 Special Edition, or possibly some other form of the game built for Nintendo's system.
The Skyrim Special Edition comes with all of the game's DLC and support for mods, as well as increased resolution and other effects. A Switch demo reel showed Skyrim on the console, but this might not have been gameplay. We'll report back with more details as they become available.
"We love to make games and worlds for you to get lost in, that you can make your own, and never want to put down. Now you don't have to--now you can play Skyrim wherever you want," Howard said during January's Switch event.
Howard told GameSpot this month that Nintendo was "less interested" in Bethesda's games before the Switch. And like many other developers, Howard isn't completely sure if the Switch will be a hit. "I don't know where it's gonna go," he said. "But I think it's a really smart platform. We like it a lot."
