Sure, Skyrim is the game that keeps on giving. Or showing up everywhere. But that's because it's one of the all-time great open world RPGs. And when we first saw it teased for the Nintendo Switch a while back, the idea of portable Skyrim was just too good to pass up.
And now, alongside the great DOOM, the Switch is two for two in receiving great ports of Bethesda classics. As Alex 'Pikamus' Andreadis explains.
Skyrim, you may have heard about it. The Elder Scrolls part flying V - ala The Mighty Ducks. One of the all-time great open world RPGs in the same way those kids were good at ice hockey. The Nintendo Switch version of the 2011 classic is based on the recently released Skyrim Special Edition (2016) that featured all official content released for the game plus fancy new enhanced visuals for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. So, that means Skyrim for Switch includes the full game, all the DLC, and around about seven million hours of gameplay.

Give or take.
So far, I’ve put at least 20 hours into the Switch version and mostly in handheld mode. And it's something that I don’t intend to put down any time soon. Or at least this train finally makes it to my stop. Anyway, after not playing the game for many years, and foregoing the Special Edition release last year in lieu of the Switch version – playing it again after all this time feels fresh. Especially when I decided to mix it up and forego my usual wizard of wizardry awesomeness and finally experience Skyrim as a different class.
