Tons of things are being released about the Nintendo Switch, there has been plenty of praise and dissent alike for the console, but one of the most disappointing developments may be that Skyrim isn’t technically announced for the Switch, even though it was in the reveal trailer, and from the way things sound, it may actually not be.
Bethesda and Nintendo have left it open, that’s for sure. There definitely will be Nintendo x Bethesda works in the future, given the announcement of the partnership, but it may not be Skyrim.
Speaking to GamesIndustry, when asked about Skyrim, Bethesda’s response was:
“We’re happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the video. While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future.”
Nintendo has diverted much the same by basically saying that all details regarding the console will be announced “prior to the March release.”
It would be ridiculous of Nintendo x Bethesda to not go forward with this after featuring it in the reveal trailer. That itself should be classified as false advertising.
It is possible that Bethesda doesn’t want to reveal anything so that sales for the Xbox One, PC and PS4 Skyrim: Special Editions aren’t stunted while people wait for the Switch, but if that were the case, it would be much, much better if they had waited until they were ready to reveal anything, and then Nintendo and Bethesda could do something spectacular.
