The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim On Nintendo Switch Will Be Special Edition, No Mods For Now

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch is confirmed to be enhanced with its Special Edition on Nintendo Switch. In yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation fans were thrilled to find out that the game will feature all new graphics as seen on its remaster instead of settling with its original version.

As we’ve seen earlier about the Special Edition for  The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the other platforms:

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition brings a whole lot of graphical improvements to the game. According to Bethesda’s Todd Howard some high resolution textures turned out to be bit more sharper compared to the high resolution texture pack on PC.

The special editions brings lush environments, volumetric god rays, screen space reflections and shading for water and snow.

When asked by US Gamer’s Matt Kim on whether or not The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will feature mods on Nintendo Switch, Pete Hines answered “Not at this time” which is a natural responce given the fragile nature of the console.

Since  The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be already at its finest with all its new graphics on the Nintendo console it would be unfair to be asking for mods that would bring the performance of its hardware to its limits.

Skyrim is one of Bethesda’s biggest titles giving players hundreds of hours of gameplay so the mods are a pretty minor thing to be discussed.

Bethesda is also bringing DOOM on the Nintendo Switch on this year’s holidays, even though it will be a much different port than the one on Playstation 4 and Xobx One, and Wolfenstein 2 later next year after it’s release.

Skyrim is due out for Switch on November 17 in both North America and Europe and will include special Zelda-themed armor and weapons that are unlockable through scanning compatible Amiibo figures.
