The Nintendo switch commercial surprised a lot of people with the showing of bethesdas skyrim playing on the small and large screen format. With no official announcement for the release of skyrim on the switch, some people even questioned if it the game was even coming to the new system due in march. Well, Now its official.
In a recent interview by Glixel.com Todd howard, the creator of skyrim was asked about the switch:
“What do you think of the Switch, Nintendo’s newly announced console that is portable but also hooks up to your TV?
I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you – well, maybe that’s an N.D.A. thing. One of the best demos I’ve ever seen. Probably the best demo I’ve ever seen. At E3.
Was it a Nintendo game?
I mean the device itself. I think it’s really smart what they’re doing. We’re definitely going to be supporting it. It’s the first time we’ve done something on Nintendo. If you don’t count the old NES stuff. Home Alone. Or Where’s Waldo?
Can you really bring Skyrim with you on the go?
It’s the same game on the TV and on the other screen”
Really interesting to see the way he talked about the switch, after all, they’ve previously said they will only work with the switch if its powerful as the xbox one or ps4. So does this mean it is? we will have to wait and see, until then at least we know that the switch is getting stronger third party support than the wiiu.
