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.


The latest episode of Denjin Getcha once again featured Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13 with Power-up Kit. Check out the recording below for footage.

Anúna, a well-known choral ensemble based in Ireland, is now confirmed to be involved with the music for Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Composer Yasunori Mitsuda recently posted the following on Facebook:

Another new Zelda: Breath of the Wild screenshot has popped up on the series’ Facebook page. This time, we see Link engaged in battle with an enemy. View the image above.


Update: This also works on eShop cards. You can get a $50 card for $41.37.

Original: Switch systems only come with 32GB of storage (technically a bit less than that actually), so most owners are probably going to want to purchase a microSD card. And thankfully, Amazon is having a “sale” of sorts today.

Customers have voted Amazon number one in corporate reputation. To celebrate, the retailer is letting consumers use the code BIGTHANKS today on orders over $50 to save $8.62. That means you can nab the SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSD card for $61.32.

By the way, the code doesn’t work on games. You may find use for it with something else though – like accessories.

Without a Switch pre-order, it will be hard to buy one on launch day for sure. However, in a news release GameStop said that they will have a ‘limited supply’ of  Switch units for customers that enter the store and don’t have a pre-order.

“Customers who were not able to pre-order the system are encouraged to attend GameStop’s midnight launch events.”

We all know what happened with the NES Classic and how few units ended up on sale at video game stores around the world. So maybe this time it will be relatively possible to grab a Switch without having it pre-ordered online beforehand.

Additionally, GameStop have also announced that they will sell only two Switch bundles:

  • Bundle 1: Nintendo Switch + Switch Pro Controller + The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – $429.99
  • Bundle 2: Bundle 1 + Piggyback’s official guide to Breath of the Wild – $454.99

We don’t know when these bundles will be up on their website, but we’ll update with any new information.



Studio Koba is trying to fund their first game, Narita Boy, using the famous Kickstarter platform. Should this project meet the goal of raising €200,000 , they have promised to create a port for Switch.

Narita Boy seems to be a ‘retro futuristic pixel game’ inspired by old adventure games like Castlevania and Double Dragon, but with an 80’s Tron-like arcade esthetic that suits it really well. Here are the features that they promised to deliver if they reach the base €120,000 goal:

  • Pure handcrafted pixel sprites with rich and complex animations.

  • A homage to the 80’s that tastes like retro but is also new. Narita Boy reloads the creative canons to find an unique style that combines the past and the future of video games

  • Classic 2D scroller action with new exotic time and dimension jump mechanics, RPG elements and amazing worlds to explore; from the streets of the 80s to the weird futuristic landscapes of another dimension.

  • An awesome Soundtrack inspired by the glory days of analog synthesizers.

  • The Story will put you through a journey between dimensions, neglecting the ebbs and turns of Time itself. Meet weird, unique characters and wield powerful and strange magic.

  • Jump, fight, find your own way in order to progress, travel across dimensions and let yourself be amazed by the amazing retro futuristic universe of Narita Boy.

  • Find items to upgrade your digital magic and your (meta)physical strength. Find vehicles to traverse greater distances and use your instincts to find well hidden secrets.

  • Easy to learn, simple to play, but a real challenge to Master.

As of the writing of this post, the Narita Boy project has raised almost €25,000, but there’s still 32 days to go. Make sure to check out their Kickstarter page and back this game if you are interested on playing it on the go with Switch.
