So it's really going to happen then? lol

what rock have you been hiding under? What, you just thought the E3 demonstration by Bethesda was a trick or something?

Of course, it is happening. Skyrim is an old game (11th November 2011) and was designed to run on older hardware with less technical specs than the Nintendo Switch.

From what I can gather the Switch is getting the version that ran on the PS3 or the XBox360 except it will scale from 720p (handheld mode) to 1080p in the dock.

As most people here know Skyrim is a huge game and you could spend hundreds of hours (especially with the DLC) although depending on the difficulty you set or change on the fly you could reduce the main campaign to about 30 or 40 hours (speed running being the exception). Still, the game IMHO is best played on a decent sized screen but if people want to play using a small screen (6.2 inches) then that is up to them.

it's the remastered edition 🤦🏻‍♂️ Not the older PS360 version.

How many more times do we need to buy this to show them that we want TESVI >.< I'm with everyone else, this is just beating a dead horse.

FullmetalRoyale122d ago

I don't disagree. But if you had told me back when it released that I'd see it fully playable on a portable, I wouldn't believe you. If I hadn't bought Skyrim on PS4, and had a Switch, this would be a day one for me.

Next up, Skyrim toilet paper with instructional "shouts" to empty your pipes.

Well said but please no "I took an arrow in the knee". 😎

zivtheawesome122d ago

after seeing this i am pretty sure that it is standard edition and not the special edition. expected but still.

GameBoyColor122d ago

Looks in between graphical wise. All the dlc is included though and no mods.

Summons75122d ago

Pretty sure it's the Special Edition. Everywhere is reporting it as such and I saw a few reports saying Bethesda themselves confirmed it. As long as it comes with all the DLC (which it does) I don't really care.

_-EDMIX-_122d ago (Edited 122d ago )

No it's not

if it was ever the special edition Bethesda would have specifically said so why would they not advertise their game to be that version? Because of the switches power limitations it's not going to be running at the same thing PS4 and Xbox One was running at.

we're literally looking at the official website and it states nothing about being the special edition in fact they go out of their way to remove all the same wording on the official Nintendo switch Skyrim page, yet that's on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One official websites regarding special edition or enhanced graphical features and elements.

I see no special edition.

Stop lying please.

So it's your hearsay with no link and no evidence versus the official pages....

Open your eyes, if you can't see its better than normal then you need help.

_-EDMIX-_122d ago

I mean I would have to see a direct feed in order to even tell if it was slightly better than the normal version.

Everything that I'm seeing so far looks like the vanilla version last generation.

I need to see more but it wouldn't surprise me if it's simply somewhere in between especially considering they're being very careful on how they word this version

nowhere on any of the official pages from the company ever States Special Edition and they actually take out the wording regarding enhanced graphical elements.
