Skyrim will unleash its chaos on Nintendo Switch this November

Classic head-caving action, now in hand-held form!

The anticipated Switch port of the classic fantasy RPG Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Special Edition, will be landing on the Nintendo device this November.

The beloved Bethesda title will be released on November 17. That’s almost six years to the day the game was originally launched on PS3, PC and Xbox 360, way back in 2011.

The Switch port has some interesting new tricks for the old dog, including Joy Con-exclusive mechanics for lock-picking, bow-firing and other chicanery. The port also features Zelda-themed items which can be unlocked via amiibo functionality.
