Well Hello Zelda, Skyrim on Nintendo Switch is Getting Link-ified

Written by on    

Skyrim is coming to Nintendo Switch but that’s not the exciting part, in fact that’s the “why so late part?” In exciting news, the Nintendo Switch version of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, as announced during Bethesda’s E3 conference, players will be able to role-play as Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

As shown in the trailer above Skyrim for Nintendo Switch will include amiibo support. When used, Link who apparently is locked away in a treasure chest will also contain Link’s Master Sword, Hylian shield and an outfit that allows for Legend of Zelda cosplay in Skyrim.

Skyrim for Switch will also include three official add-ons — Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn — and motion controls using the system’s Joy-Con.

Bethesda describes the game as:

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch includes all-new gameplay features like motion controls for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch also includes all official add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. Plus tap other compatible amiibo to gain additional loot including 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.

Skyrim for Nintendo Switch will release this Fall.
