It’s rather surprising, but Bethesda has been one of Switch’s strongest supporters thus far. Unlike what we saw with previous console generations, the company is already preparing a few games for Nintendo’s system. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launches in November, followed by Doom this holiday, and Wolfenstein II in 2018.
Nintendo fans will be happy to hear that this could be just the start of Bethesda’s plans for Switch. In an interview with GamesBeat, vice president of marketing and communications Pete Hines noted that they don’t intend to just release these games and stop. “We want this to be the start of a relationship that we build with Nintendo and Nintendo fans,” Hines noted.
More comments from Hines about Switch are included below. You can read the full interview on GamesBeat here.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, which was only just made known through last week’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, already has a release date. Developer Asteroid Base announced today that the launch will be taking place on October 3. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime will cost $14.99.
In Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, you can expect frenzied co-op action as you switch back and forth between manning a spacecraft’s controls, weapons, and defenses against alien robots. If you’d prefer playing the campaign alone, you can do so with a trusty AI space dog or cat.
