The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Switch New Footage Showcases Game Played In Handheld Mode


The Nintendo Switch version of the acclaimed RPG The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim was one of the first games announced for the new console, but we had yet to see the game run on the actual console. Finally, footage has emerged online, showing how the Switch version compares to the game's other releases.

The new The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Switch footage, which can be found right below, shows the game running in handheld mode. According to the video's uploader, Skyrim runs nicely on Switch, with controls translating nicely to the Joy-Con.
