We have a release date for Skyrim's Nintendo Switch version


The only game specified to be shown on the Direct is Mario Odyssey, but with that one fairly thoroughly revealed at this point, the almost 45-minute presentation has plenty of time for surprises. This Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo Switch bundle is out on October 27.

The majority of the Nintendo Direct was focused on Switch and 3DS games being released this year, so there were relatively few other surprises.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch is the latest version announced by Bethesda for its well-known role-playing game that has editions on multiple consoles and systems. Still, it's good to temper expectations. It means that Bethesda, one of the world's biggest video game publishers, is increasing its support for Nintendo's popular Switch, said Pete Hines, vice president of PR and marketing at Bethesda, in an interview with GamesBeat.

It's also possible they've got something else entirely up their sleeves. From 3D platformers to arcade classics, there were plenty of games that would peak the interest of Switch owners. There will be plenty more, apparently, and they'll each be packed with Power Moons, the game's primary collectible - we're briefly shown a menu that indicates more than 50 moons within a single level.

However, what Nintendo does best is making games, so rest assured they have covered those grounds.

According to Twinfinite, the task of converting the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of "NBA 2K18" to a Nintendo Switch version was not a walk in the park.

Watch the Nintendo Direct itself above so you can catch the multitudes of announcements I couldn't cover here.

It is worth noting that you can also find the console for £279 on Amazon and Argos in Neon Red and Neon blue but without any additional game.

The news definitely took a lot of people by storm, because the last time DOOM was on a Nintendo home system was with DOOM 64. A demo for the game is available right now in the eShop.
