One of the more unexpected Nintendo-related E3 announcements took place during a third-party conference. During its presentation, Bethesda debuted a new trailer for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Switch and unveiled a special Zelda collaboration. The game will let players walk around in Link’s outfit from Breath of the Wild, sword and all.

Geoff Keighley spoke with Bethesda VP of PR / marketing Pete Hines about the collaboration at E3. He said:

“… talked to the Breath of the Wild folks, and they were big Skyrim fans themselves and loved the idea. We really wanted to kind of do an integration with them – their open world thing, our open world thing. It was a lot of fun. They were great with proividing us with all kinds of assets to make it feel like a cool, unique thing for Skyrim.”

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to Switch this holiday. A specific release date has not yet been announced.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Switch won’t be published by Bethesda, apparently. Nintendo’s site lists itself as the actual publisher. It’s a bit interesting to see that Bethesda isn’t handling it directly.

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:
