Fulfill your destiny as an ancient evil awakens...



Experience an open-world fantasy epic, 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.



Create your hero

Play as any type of character you can imagine and do whatever you want: defeat dragons, explore dungeons, loot through bandit infested caverns, interact with the people of Skyrim, and master different skills, spells and weapons.


The choice is yours

Your decisions matter in a world that changes dynamically based on your choices. Seek out epic quests, level up your character, customise your appearance and embark on an adventure that’s unique to you. Play any way you want and define your character through your actions.



A new way to play

Take down enemies in combat and explore the world of Skyrim with all-new motion controls exclusive to Nintendo Switch. Swing your sword in battle, aim your bow at your target, and pick locks as you search for hidden treasure and loot.



More adventures await

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® for Nintendo Switch also includes all official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. Encounter new towns, dungeons and quests, join an ancient order and build your home from the ground up.



Look heroic

You can tap compatible The Legend of Zelda character amiibo (sold separately) to gain outfits and gear inspired by the series. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield, or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic.*



Gain more loot
