The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch releases on November 17

The announcement of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch was one of the most pleasant surprises around the reveal of the Nintendo Switch. The reveal that using Zelda amiibo would allow players to get some of Link's gear in the game also proved to be a highlight of Bethesda's RPG-light E3 presence - but until now, we've been left guessing if the game, slated for 2017, would actually release this year.

Wonder no longer: we now know - Skyrim for Nintendo Switch is coming on November 17, marking out the time when RPG fans need to clear some time in their schedule - or you can just take Skyrim to work with you... that is the beauty of the Switch, after all.

Tapping Zelda amiibo to the game will spawn chests in the world that'll give you access to Link's tunic from Breath of the Wild plus the iconic Master Sword and Hylian Shield. It's not clear if this'll only work with specific amiibo or with anyt from the Zelda line just yet.

Skyrim for Switch also features all-new motion controls with the joy-con controllers, plus of course full support for the Switch portable mode.
