Skyrim for the Switch includes The Legend of Zelda gear, motion controls

2 min read


We knew that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was coming to the Nintendo Switch – but what reason might there be to play the game again, other than that it’s on the go. In its E3 presentation, Bethesda gave Zelda fans a valid reason. By using a Legend of Zelda Amiibo, players can unlock what seems like full The Legend of Zelda Gear – including Link’s blue Breath of the Wild Tunic, and a Master Sword.

The game also features motion controls, utilising the left and right Joy-Cons as separate hands. Players can use one as a shield and one as a sword, as an example – or use motion controls for Bow and Arrow operation.

  • Epic Fantasy Reborn.

Skyrim reimagines the open-world fantasy epic, pushing the gameplay and technology of a virtual world to new heights.
