While we’ve known for some time that Skyrim will be making its way on the Nintendo Switch – it was one of the first titles to be announced for the console – Bethesda revealed an interesting feature that’s exclusive to the hybrid system: Link’s outfit in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be available.
Players who own a Link amiibo will receive a chest holding the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Link’s blue outfit from the latest Zelda game. They are then able to dress in the costume, or use whichever items they wish individually.
Regarding the costume, Bethesda writes: “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch includes all-new gameplay features like motion controls for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch also includes all official add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. Plus tap other compatible amiibo to gain additional loot including those from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series, 30th Anniversary – The Legend of Zelda series, Super Smash Bros. series, and The Legend of Zelda series.”
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will release on Switch with its three expansions: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. It will also be motion control compatible for the first time.
