What’s unique about Skyrim on Nintendo Switch?


  • Play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim anytime, anywhere, with the full portability of the Nintendo Switch system.

Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch lets you live another life, in another world—at home or on the go.


Experience an open-world fantasy epic from Bethesda Game Studios®, brought to life with a complete virtual world for you to explore any way you choose.

Rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, flowing rivers and ancient dungeons are waiting to be discovered…anytime, anywhere. Set your own pace in a world that alters dynamically based on your choices. Play any way you want and define your character through your actions.


  • All official add-ons are included in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch:


The Vampire Lord Harkon has returned to power, seeking to do the unthinkable—to end the sun itself. Will you join the Dawnguard to stop him? Or become a Vampire Lord yourself?


Purchase land and build your own house from the ground up—from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.


Journey off the coast of Morrowind, to the island of Solstheim. Your fate, and the fate of Solstheim, hangs in the balance as you face off against your deadliest adversary—the first Dragonborn.

  • Try different motion control styles

Play using Joy-Con controllers or a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. For example, using Joy-Con controllers will let you use motion controls to swing your melee weapon and draw and aim your bow.


  • Gear up for a legendary adventure with amiibo

Tap compatible The Legend of Zelda character amiibo figures (sold separately) once daily for the chance to gain gear inspired by the series.

For the first time ever, go into battle The Legend of Zelda style – fight with the Master Sword and guard with the Hylian Shield, all while sporting the fetching Champion’s Tunic.

You can also earn this gear in-game naturally, but amiibo give you a chance to get them immediately.

Tap other compatible amiibo figures for a chest filled with loot such as gold, gear, and materials.

Welcome to Skyrim


An ancient evil awakens

The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesied Dragonborn to come – a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.


Create your hero

You’re the hero of this story, and the choices you make will dynamically change the game. Your first big choice is creating your character.

Play as any type of character you can imagine and do whatever you want: defeat dragons, explore dungeons, interact with the people of the world, build a house, start a family, and master skills, spells and weapons.
