When the Nintendo Switch was revealed, one of the showcase games in the trailer was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Bethesda was also listed as one of Nintendo's Switch development partners. When asked about the game itself however, Bethesda refused to confirm that Skyrim was actually coming to the platform.
"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," a Bethesda spokesperson told Gamesindustry.biz at the time.
In an interview with Glixel, Bethesda director Todd Howard finally confirms that the game is coming to Switch.
"It's the same game on the TV and on the other screen," said Howard, when asked about Skyrim on Switch.
Howard was also pretty positive about the Switch as a platform.
"I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you – well, maybe that's an N.D.A. thing. One of the best demos I've ever seen. Probably the best demo I've ever seen. At E3," he said. "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."
It's possible Bethesda didn't want to confirm the game prior to Skyrim: Special Edition, which was scheduled for release a week later on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This doesn't tell us when Skyrim will be coming to Nintendo's platform, but at least it's better than the odd limbo we were in before.
