This is despite being heavily featured in the reveal trailer.
Of the many third party titles that Nintendo promoted in the reveal trailer for the new Switch, formerly the NX, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim caught many a player’s eye. However, just because it was featured doesn’t mean it’s currently planned for the console.
Speaking to Games Industry International, a Bethesda spokesperson said, “We’re happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future.”
At this point, it could be that Skyrim is still in the planning stages. Bethesda could also possibly release a version that isn’t the Skyrim we know and love. Again, this is all hypothetical until the company outright confirms it.
But hey, at least we got to see teases of a new Mario and Mario Kart.
