The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was the first third-party game Nintendo trotted out in its reveal trailer for the Nintendo Switch (likely to assure viewers "Hey, other developers besides us support this thing!"). We've had a bit of a wait, but Switch owners will finally visit the snowy province of Skyrim later this year.
Skyrim for the Switch has some exclusive features, too. If you scan the Breath of the Wild Amiibo (and possibly other Zelda Amiibo), you can access Link's blue tunic from Breath of the Wild, the Master Sword, and the Hylian shield. Let's see your fiery hell-breath try to burn thin blue cloth, Alduin.
The trailer also indicates Skyrim supports the Switch's motion controls. You can swing, shield-bash, and fire arrows using gestures. As someone who actually kind of likes the motion controls in the Wii version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (and even to some degree in Skyward Sword), I'm definitely willing to give them a try. Look out hagravens, here come my badly-fired arrows.
Take a look at the trailer for yourself.
