Nintendo Switch running Skyrim looks less pretty than other versions, but just as fun

Wonder what The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim running on the Nintendo Switch actually looks like? It's understandable, as the game was teased from day one of the Switch reveal. But wonder no more, as the game was playable on the show floor of EGX 2017 (formerly known as the Eurogamer Expo) and was recorded a few minutes' worth of gameplay for you.

I look forward to fallout 3/vegas😂

SuperRaccoon328d ago

Honestly, New Vegas would be great, if it were offered at a good price and performed better than on the PS3/360. It would help cleanse the palate after Fallout 4.

They would have to manage to do it all for a good price considering anyone can pop open Steam during almost any sale and get it for less than $5.

New Vegas is a way better game anyways,I'd take f3 and Vegas with their dlc over 4

Summons75328d ago

Fallout 4 made up for NV trash. But I suppose you like absolutely broken games. At least Fallout 4 you could get out of the starting area without running into 3 different game-breaking bugs.

Vegamyster328d ago


I put 70 hours into New Vegas and had no game breaking bugs.

Fallout 3 was an awful game..

babadivad328d ago

It was inferior to New Vegas by a long shot. But when it launched, not knowing the awesomeness that is New Vegas was being cooked up, I thought it was great.

Fall Out 3's greatness[for it's time] had me hyped for New Vegas. There wouldn't have been a New Vegas if Fallout 3 was a bad game.

I think at this point, Fallout 4 has a higher chance of appearing.

In other note, I really hope to see Pillar of Eternity 2 appearing on the Switch somedays. I love the first one, and playing the second on the go would be amazing.

New Vegas on the go? Where do I sign up, that would be awesome!

Don't get me wrong I love skyrim. But all this time porting to next gen and switch plus the Vr ports they could've put the time in for the next elder scrolls.

It's probably a different/smaller team working on it.

SuperRaccoon328d ago

It's actually just two guys, Steve from accounting and Spunky the janitor.

TheColbertinator328d ago


Spunky is my hero

Nintentional328d ago

@SuperRacoon, Spunky once let me borrow $5 for lunch and didn’t even want me to pay him back.

Gamble20328d ago

As others have pointed out, at this stage it’s realy not an enormous amount of effort to port it over. It’s just a way to make a quick buck. Whether they did or did not develop it does not impact the speed with which they roll out the next Elder Scrolls.

_-EDMIX-_328d ago


The teams that they have actually doing these ports are not even going to be big enough to actually create an entire game in fact I don't think most of you even fully understand how ports are made if you honestly believe the same time could be made to create a game from the ground up

Ports of games could be made literally in mere weeks in fact the Switch is so easy to work with they could get ports up and running within days.

The teams that actually fully create ground up Elder Scrolls games do not actually make ports what you're talking about is completely irrelevant you're basically trying to compare a rerun to an entire brand new episode.

Do you believe running a rerun is the same thing as creating an episode from the ground up?

Do you believe that a restoration Team set to put Star Wars Episode 4 in 4k is doing the exact same thing as making a ground up brand new Star Wars movie?

When you actually understand what is being done you'll also understand why the notion of a ground-up game being made in its place is actually quite ridiculous and irrelevant to both products.

Once again just to put this into perspective that would be like asking the teams that edit and restore films to make a Star Wars movie from the ground up, you might be talking about a team of maybe five or ten people that are Not actors or not writers were not making set design for god sakes please dear God read what porting and restoration actually is, it has absolutely nothing to do with actual creation in regards to how you make a video game or a movie the two are irrelevant to each other

It is not an either or

Rebel_Scum328d ago

So says the guy who's probably never heard of regression testing.

Prince_TFK328d ago

Bethesda is already in development of two new games, GOT and a space game. So I doubt porting Skyrim would take enormous effort for them.

And who to say that they aren't developing a new Elder Scrolls?

Looks worse than the Special Edition XB1/PS4/PC versions... Looks better than the original 360/PS3 version... All I care about is how the game performs and plays. Graphics be damned.
