E3 2017: Bethesda Showcases Skyrim On Switch

During their E3 conference, Bethesda gave a brief gameplay trailer showing off Skyrim on Switch. They also revealed that the game will have support for Amiibo and motion controls. No release date was shown during the trailer.

During the trailer, we see a Breath of the Wild Amiibo used to drop a chest into Skyrim. It's implied that in this chest, the player acquired a BOTW Link outfit, along with a Master Sword and shield. It's likely that different Amiibo will be used to drop Nintendo themed mods into Skyrim, and that's awesome.

We also see the player use the joycon's motion controls to swing a sword, block with a shield, and fire arrows. Although this seems very cool in concept, we worry that they may become clunky and difficult to use precisely. That being said, it's good to see companies bringing AAA titles to the Switch. We'll be sure to update this article if any new details come out for Skyrim on Switch.
