Fallout and The Elder Scrolls game director Todd Howard has openly discussed Nintendo Switch in a recent interview, confirming, after a first showcase through the console’s reveal trailer, that Skyrim will be coming to the platform. We still don’t know if the game is going to be available at Nintendo Switch‘s launch, but it’s likely this will happen as the RPG has already released for PS4 and Xbox One. Talking about Nintendo Switch, “I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you – well, maybe that’s an N.D.A. thing.
Probably One of the best demo I’ve ever seen. At E3,” he said, making it clear the team is working on the upcoming Nintendo platform since the E3 2016 days. If it’s really as simple to port games to Switch as Nvidia reported a few days ago, this is a good timing to be releasing Skyrim: Special Edition on console’s day one. “I mean the device itself. I think it’s really smart what they’re doing. We’re definitely going to be supporting it.
It’s the first time we’ve done something on Nintendo. If you don’t count the old NES stuff. Home Alone. Or Where’s Waldo?” Technically, Howard has not gone into details, but he added that Skyrim is going to be the same on both the portable device and the television screen. “It’s the same game on the TV and on the other screen.” Which is great. Nintendo Switch’s releasing in March 2017. A new presentation trailer is planned to drop on January 12.
