Description

    Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®, the epic fantasy from Bethesda Game Studios®, arrives for Nintendo Switch™. The legendary open-world adventure where you can be anyone and do anything, now allows you to play anywhere – at home on your TV or on the go. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch console includes all-new exclusive features like motion control for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda™ franchise, and amiibo™ compatibility. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. Skyrim also includes all official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

    The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

    Key Features

    Live another life, in another world: Play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want: defeat dragons, explore dungeons, interact with the people of the world, build a house, start a family, and master skills, spells, and weapons. Set your own pace in a world that alters dynamically based on your choices.

    Stunning graphics and immersive gameplay: Skyrim brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, flowing rivers, and ancient dungeons.

    You are what you play: Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. Play any way you want and define your character through your actions.

    Gain gear Inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Tap compatible Legend of Zelda character amiibo figures (sold separately) to gain outfits and gear inspired by the series. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian shield, or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Legend of Zelda amiibo figures include those from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series, 30th Anniversary - The Legend of Zelda series, Super Smash Bros. series, and The Legend of Zelda series.

    Motion controls: Use all-new motion controls exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version: battle with melee weapons, aim your bow, or pick locks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Skyrim but on Switch It looks the same, it plays the same. I even had a total system crash needing a reboot. 10/10 pure skyrim experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid port of an excellent game Skyrim still stands up as an excellent adventure RPG. Even seven years after its initial release I find new things to discover about the world and the characters who inhabit it. The skill tree system is fluid and doesn't limit you to choosing a particular class at the start of the game - instead, you gain experience points in any skill that you use and, upon reaching a certain point threshold, can level up the skills that you wish to master. So it has great replay value in that you can choose an entirely different skill set to develop in a different playthrough. As a port, it's pretty good but not perfect. Graphically it's limited by the Switch and probably looks better on a PC or higher-spec console. The game has crashed on me a couple of times but save often and this isn't a major problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skyrim on the go is amazing I thought I was done with this game after the ps4 release but I picked this up and was I happy I did. For me personally the difference in graphics etc etc was minimal and I didnt notice. The gameplay experience was the same as ps4. ... but I can take it on the go, it runs very very well in handheld. I recently had to fly to Fiji the 5 hour flight felt like 10 mins . Recommend this product for anyone who hasnt played skyrim or wants to play it anywhere anytime

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game Have had this for a long time on pc, the switch version is great for gaming on the go, i still find quests and stories i have played before, only thing i wish you could do is add some mods but not a game breaker

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hasn't Aged Well While I am glad that Skyrim has been ported to Switch, there have been major cuts to the graphics quality as well as the still-existent annoying bugs. Would recommend however, for those who would enjoy playing Skyrim on the go.
