Bethesda is known for making big games for an equally massive audience, which made the news of a possible Skyrim port for the Nintendo Switch all the more exciting. However, the publisher refused to the port exists, even though we’ve seen it on the console’s reveal trailer.
That is, until today. Todd Howard, director and executive producer at Bethesda, took to Glixel and talked about Nintendo’s console and Skyrim. When asked about the Nintendo Switch and his thoughts on the console, Todd responded with: “I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you – well, maybe that’s an N.D.A. thing. One of the best demos I’ve ever seen. Probably the best demo I’ve ever seen. At E3.”
When asked if this “demo” was a Nintendo game, Howard clarified that it was a demonstration of the console’s capabilities. “We’re definitely going to be supporting it. It’s the first time we’ve done something on Nintendo. If you don’t count the old NES stuff,” he added.
When asked whether Skyrim will be available “on the go”, Howard simply replayed, “It’s the same game on the TV and on the other screen.” This goes to show that Bethesda are indeed working on a portable version of Skyrim, and it makes sense this version will be available on the Switch, thanks to the consoles portable screen.
If the most recent report is indeed true the game will be available for launch on March 2017.
