Gear Up Like Link in SKYRIM on the Nintendo Switch

A few months ago, Nintendo and Bethesda teamed up to announce The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim‘s upcoming debut on the Nintendo Switch. Unsurprisingly, we got a brand new trailer during Bethesda’s E3 2017 press conference. What we weren’t expecting, however, was to see Nintendo content make an appearance in the game. Considering The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s popularity (because it is seriously a perfect game), we were beyond excited to see the addition of BoTW gear to the wonderful world of Skyrim. Check out the fun trailer below!

Umm, run around as Link, wielding the Master Sword to slay enemies in Skyrim? Yes please! As you’ll see in the trailer above, all of the cool LoZ gear magically appears in your game when you use the Breath of the Wild Link Amiibo. According to the video’s description, Amiibo from the Super Smash Bros series and the 30th Anniversary The Legend of Zelda series will be compatible with the game. I for one can ‘t wait to see what these unlock. All I’m hoping for is some sweet Princess Zelda garb for my female Kajit.

In addition to downloadable content, Bethesda has also taken advantage of the Nintendo Switch capabilities and added motion controls to the game for combat and lock-picking. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch will include all of the official add-ons for the game: Dawnguard, Heathfire, and Dragonborn. We can’t wait to get this in our hands and see how it plays. The thought of Skyrim on-the-go was enough to get us excited. Adding Link gear is just icing on the cake.
