Bethesda has given us a look at Skyrim on Nintendo Switch. Watch it below.
It'll be interesting to see how that motion control works. It's nice that Bethesda is taking the time to take advantage of the Switch's features.
Switch can't even handle skyrim remaster lol
^^agree...tragic..... why even bothered the nintnendo guys to bring a mediocre game of last gen on Switch ?
Does it affect people's enjoyment of the game whether or not it is remastered? When the game originally came out did people say "Ewwww da game suckss!! I will enjoy it better if it gotz remastered!!" ? While I'm certainly not that happy that its not remastered, I can understand why. IMO being able to play the game everywhere everytime outweight "greatz graphic fidelity" which once the honeymoon period with the game is over, you won't notice it that much anyway. I swear many of these fanboys have just crawls out of their cave recently espcially since its E3 time. Its gotten to the point of annoying really, any positive articles related to Nintendo and MS got trolled to oblivion.
PS4/Xbox One can't even handle a remaster of a last gen game at 60fps lol
It actually looks pretty good but I want to see Digital Foundry talk about it because the frame rates need to be decent.
If this is a true Skyrim port then a few seconds later on the trailers thumbnail you are about to be launched 100's foot in the air by that giant.
Only questions I have are: How long can you play it in handheld mode? Why buy this version, if you have access to any other console?
Q1) Who knows? Q2) Because you can play it whenever and where ever you want.
Hahah love the Amiibo support
Amiibo stuff was awesome and hilarious. This will sell well. Skyrim to go is great.
The graphics looked amazing for Switch as well.
Hang on, why are people dissing the graphics? It looks genuinely incredible considering its running on a mini tablet. A lot of the next gen effects are clearly present as well. If youre not impressed that these graphics are being produced by a 6 inch tablet, then youre a troll, and youre not worthy of having a discussion with.
Your comments are just awful.
They aren't necessarily awful, just... predictable, boring. Literally never adds anything to any discussion because he is always in "Nintendo is amazing" mode. There is no other mode for this guy and it's just sad.
ooo a pair of trolls disagreeing with a Nintendo fan and resorting to insults. Take your immature selfs back to the cave, I stand by my comments. The sad thing is the trolls who attack the Switch. Insults are just exposing the fact youre both 16-17 year olds.
yeah because anyone saying anything other then "Nintendo is amazing! everything they do is incredible!" is a troll right? Yeah.. totally.. predictable Eddie at it once again.
I agree the graphics look stunning and show what it can do. the Amiibo looks interesting but the motion controls I'm not interested in.
Do you own anything other than Nintendo systems? I think it's safe to assume no.
I own more than Nintendo consoles, the graphics looks stunning to me as well.
XB1S upgrading to Scorpio to go with my Switch and massive 4K HDR Bravia . Are u anything other than a sad troll? I assume not. My comments were on point, sorry theyve upset you lol. I said they looked amazing FOR SWITCH not any other console. I have the special edition already lol, i'm gunna trade it in and get the Switch ver.
1980: There will be flying cars in the future. . . . 2017: Skyrim with MOTION F***ING CONTROLS!!! wwweeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!
Amiibo stuff actually looked cool. The motion controls looked awful. I don't see why they didn't go with some simple motion assisted aiming like what Zelda has.
I hope every game that has any kind of shooting has motion assisted aiming like Zelda/Splatoon. I hope that is an option.
Do you really want some texting and driving in a flying car? Somebody will crash into your roof while your eating breakfast because they were checking twitter.
Makes a good bar story if you survive, at least!XD
i was on the fence, but now i jump over......you got me.......best part never played it before
Wtf?! What you had a wii?
I had PS3 a now a PS4 and I've never played it. I own 12 games and 7 are published by Bethesda. I tried Oblivion and ESO but couldn't get into them. When it comes to games developed by Bethesda, I've always favored Fallout. Skyrim Remastered is on my want list and someday in the future I will definitely try it on ps4.
I've had a gaming PC for years and years and even I never bought Skyrim until a short while ago. It's just not really my cup of tea. I downloaded a bunch of mods and played it for about 50 hours. (Though, to be fair I used the command console to up my movespeed because I was tired of walking being so slow, so I would have gotten through things quicker than most people). Haven't really touched it much since.
I will buy Skyrim but I feel like the motion controls will get old fairly quick. Maybe I'm wrong but I didn't like it for Zelda
if you didnt know joycon motion are better than Wii better tech inside
I'm sure the motion control is totally optional
There's supposed to be other amiibos that work with it.
I will buy, buy I hope it's not $60, $40 would be a good price imo.
Knowing bethy, just bc of motion swinging 60$
They charged $60 for the Xbox One/PS4 remaster, didn't they? I picked it up for less than $5 on PC a little while with all the DLC and can play it with all sorts of mods. It's mind boggling that they think it's fair to charge $60 for console players.
You're probably right Sam, the only saving grace will be my Best Buy Gamers Club discount. @ The 10th Rider, I have a PC too, but the portability is what I want. I play Switch games on my hour lunch at work, I"ll gladly give up mods and dlc for that.
Does anyone know if it's the special edition?
If you have to ask you already know the answer. So no.
I actually don't know. But thanks for assuming.
It was a joke If Bethesda has not thrown the SE on the logo anywhere over the past year (they haven't) nor mentioned better visuals (they havent) you know the answer to your question you are just asking because you want it to not be true and just a miss understanding(my guess anyway)
@Tct- buddy, no. Its not the SE. They made it pretty damn clear with it just saying "Skyrim" and nothing else. http://www.nintendo.com/gam... https://www.playstation.com... Read. They are being very careful with how they word it, its very clear that this is not the SE. On PS4 = "Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim Special Edition brings the epic fantasy to life in stunning detail. The Special Edition includes the critically acclaimed game and add-ons with all-new features like remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic" On Switch - "Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose. Dragons long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel and the future of the Empire hangs in the balance. As Dragonborn, the prophesized hero born with" Sooooooo they are again making it very clear its not the SE. This is likely just Skyrim from last gen, I see no reason to NOT MARKET it as a SE even with all the add ons from last gen if they were even in this game. So they told PS4 and XONE gamers right on the official pages about those add ons, but lets not tell Switch owners the exact info on this game? Logically, it makes more sense that this is just the last gen version, no add ons.
They may not say it's the special edition, but they showed off footage from the special edition. So either they're false advertising, or they're calling it something different since it appears extra work is going towards Switch exclusive features.
Confirmed to have all dlc.
@Game-nice I actually think Bethesda is doing a bad job because that's something they need to definitely be bragging about to Market that to the community I felt it would have been very difficult for them to not have all the content considering special edition on PlayStation 4 is like 20 gigs. I understand that they're not going to talk about it being special edition as to not misconstrue what it is but if it has all the add-on content that's definitely something I believe they should have been screaming to the rooftop that's not even something that's even listed on the official Nintendo website. http://www.gamezone.com/new...
Is that the Definitive version
It looks about 75% of XB1 version, miles nicer than 360 though.
I see nothing and heard nothing from Bethesda to show it is.
Swear nintendo be all late with these games.
Is this the only Bethesda game for NS
Yep, Fallout 4 won't happen TESVI won't happen Nor anything else the talent at Bethesda makes next. IMO this whole Skyrim on Switch thing is so damn meaningless because it will never develop into anything besides maybe TES legends coming to Switch. Just my thoughts anyways.
Bethesda has a ton of stuff they could bring
@eddie Like what? Bethesda game studios has a very limited number of games.
@Law- Agreed, I just don't see that happening. @Eddie- yet they didn't...... They could have ported Evil Within 1 as it was on PS3 last gen, Doom 3, Fallout 3 and NW etc. Those might take what, 6 months to port if not less, yet nothing was announced. They don't have anything planned bud. The fact that all the new announced games were not coming to Switch is a pretty good indication that they don't have much if anything planned outside of the Skyrim port.
Edmix THE SWITCH IS 3 MONTHS OLD. Did u expect them to of announced all their games, Skyrim will do well and they will bring more.
@edd-buddy it only takes 6 months to do a port if not even shorter the fact that people are even saying it's easy to develop for is actually showing that a transfer job should not even be that long. You're not seeing that content likely because they don't have plans to bring it to the platform in the first place. Even if it was going to take them a couple months they easily could have announced it at this E3 with a release date 6 months later when the ports complete. But you seriously need to stop using that stupid excuse especially when PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launched with a slew of Triple A franchises. Trust me they're not waiting for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One they already got their devkits months before those platforms released and had games already ready for launch if you're not seeing it right now for the switch it's very likely cuz they don't really have plans for it. I mean if Call of Duty ghosts Assassin's Creed 4 Battlefield 4 Need for Speed and all those other games could launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One there actually isn't a single reason why the switch is not receiving even the last-gen version of some of those games. So PlayStation 4 and Xbox One could launch with brand new games but you're telling me the switch can't have old last-gen ports even at launch? Seriously help me understand your logic with this because I'm seriously not understanding how the PS4 and Xbox One could launch what brand new games but you're telling me this switch even after release is not receiving even the ports from the previous generation. Seriously help me understand your logic with this because I'm seriously not understanding how the PS4 and Xbox One could launch what brand new games but you're telling me the switch even after release is not receiving even the ports from the previous generation.. It doesn't make sense in your entire Logic on it is completely fragmented and contradictive I mean for god sakes the fact that you're saying they're going to bring more based on the results of Skyrim is even more stupid because what did they need to do for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? Fallout 4 was already coming Elder Scrolls Online was already coming the same thing with Doom and other franchises I'm sorry but they're not playing a wait-and-see on those platforms so exactly why are you holding your breath on a wait-and-see on the switch? Dear God the fact that they're even doing that very much shows you they don't even have an interest to work on the platform if they even have to do this test in the first place They didn't seem to do anything like this for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One buddy please don't hold your breath on much companies supporting this platform with AAA content the fact that they even feel it's a gamble to even test it it's enough to question future support.
Really old game on a handheld should be the title.
yaaay finally a decade old game gets ported to a nintendo gadget. if this is going to sell i am entering the gaming business. the nintendo crowd obviously got no standards at all. easy money.
Yeah and you could play the game on your bed while laying, on the train on the car and on all forms of vehicle, and while you taking a dump when you play it on PC, xbox, and playstation.
I know right, because you could never play this on a laptop!
Yeah I know! People put thei laptop in their backpacks and in their pockets and then whip it out and hold it in one hand and hold a mouse in the other hand to play Skyrim! Or put the super lightweight laptop on their lap and whip out a controller to play! Or they can hold it to their face while laying on bed to play! What fascinating ideas to play game on the go!
@kun_ADR playing on a six inch screen is not an advantage by any mean. there are gadgets the size of a switch that have real PC hardware so switch is not the first to offer it. check the video below, you can play skyrim perfectly with mods on handheld smaller thn switch. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNiWw za_I_I
this will be awesome. playing skyrim laid in bed. goodbye 8 hours sleep
Playing Skyrim while getting laid in bed, sign me up!
? You mean you didn't know you could do that before? https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Trolling hard today I see. You can't compare the comfort of the Switch in handheld mode to a laptop.
@istolla- lol Trolling? You mean true. https://www.amazon.com/Micr... I can when using one of these bud. Consider Switch's tablet mode where you have a controller is basically a controller and a portable screen. I'd rather have a beast 17inch screen, 8gigs of ram, actual REAL SE of Skyrim with mods etc Sorry but they are very much comparable. Be like "can't compare a portable to another portable" lol
Yeah compare a "beastly" laptop to a tablet sized handheld. That make sense. You are trolling much more than usual today. Don't worry, Sony wont have a bad E3. Every year they deliver. Ease up on your insecurity would ya.
Wtf is that music man!
