Glixel recently published an interview with Bethesda Game Studios’ executive producer Todd Howard. During the chat, Howard was able to comment a bit more on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Switch.
First, Howard was asked about how Skyrim for Switch came about. He shared the following:
“When it comes to the Switch, Nintendo’s the only company that can do that, right? When you hear that Nintendo’s going to do a new platform, there’s a lot of ways that can go. If you look at handheld gaming, they’re still the best at it. If they say ‘we’re going to make the best handheld ever and you can plug it into your TV’, well that’s just really, really smart. I hope they do well and it’s a unique opportunity for us.”
Glixel also asked if Bethesda was talking with Nintendo for awhile:

Two versions of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim exist. There’s the original game from 2011, as well as the Special Edition remaster from 2016. We know that the RPG is in development for Switch, but in what form is currently unknown.
Unfortunately, Bethesda’s Todd Howard isn’t providing any new insight. Polygon asked about the Switch release, but was told that Howard “can’t say” whether it will be the original Skyrim or remaster.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is planned to hit Switch this fall. Hopefully we’ll get a clearer answer about the game before then.

Speaking with GameSpot, Bethesda game director Todd Howard said that Nintendo was “less interested” in the company’s games in the past. However, that has since changed.
Howard noted that Nintendo has been a “very good partner” for Bethesda in its effort to bring Skyrim to the Switch. “Whereas before they were less interested in the types of things that we did or some other groups did,” he said.
Howard also had some praise for Switch. Regarding the new platform, he had this to say:
“I think it’s really smart what they’ve done. I think it’s the kind of device that only Nintendo could make. It’s exciting to bring Skyrim to the Nintendo audience. I don’t know where it’s gonna go. But I think it’s a really smart platform. We like it a lot.”
