Posted on September 14, 2017

Nintendo officially announced Skyrim for the Switch will be released before the end of the year. With Skyrim managing to be released yet again, it’s time to dust off our Nord armor, pick your side between the Stormcloaks and the Imperial Legion, and get ready to tell Nazeem off again who still, has NEVER moved towards the Cloud District.

Wondering why your Nord can look like Link? Well, Bethesda confirmed at E3 that with the Zelda Amiibos (Archer Link is used in the trailer) Will unlock in game items. So far we know you can get  a Master Sword and Hylian Shield, as well as  Links Champion Tunic from Breath of the Wild.
