@Ryu_Niiyama You know that your purchase isn't going to make a difference? Save you money for another game!

@Octane It is like voting; I have no faith at all in the system but I feel compelled to do it anyway. I don't want to be the "one" that is to blame. It is fine. I will likely give it to my brother. He is a new dad and NS is about the only way he would be able to play it due to the portability. Besides I just want to have hope that we will get TES: VI on NS.

Question for Elder Scrolls veterans: Are the games connected at all? I recently picked up a PS3 and Oblivion but haven't played it much yet. Do I need to try to play and beat Oblivion before this comes out, or are the unconnected and it doesn't matter? (I think the race I chose to be in Oblivion is someone from Skyrim, so I know there is that connection.)

@Xyphon22 The races are the same. Basically, if you go to the north of the map in Oblivion (Cyrodiil) you'll encounter dungeons and story quests more in the vein of Skyrim. There is little direct connection, though. Oblivion just sets up the general world state that is the backdrop to Skyrim's story, but you can gather all of that from talking to NPCs attentively.

Skyrim is set 200 years after the events of Oblivion, so you'll hear a few references about what happened in Oblivion from NPC's, books, loading screens etc, but it really doesn't matter at all. Skyrim was my first Elder Scrolls game and I had no issues. The games are pretty much completely unrelated from a story perspective.

You can read and hear about events from across the entire series, but it isn't needed to enjoy the game.

Cool, thanks for the answers everybody. While I'm sure I probably will play Oblivion between now and then (doubt I'll beat it in that time though) it's nice to know I don't have to worry about doing it. Not like I'd actually worry about it. It is just a video game, after all.

from the footage we have seen so far this looks more like a port of the remastered edition than a port from the 7th gen version. but it definetly doesn't look as good as the remastered version. there seems to be more grass and overall plants though.

skyrim was my first elder scrolls game, too and i had no issues either. it became one of my favourite games ever very fast.

i don't think we will see elder scrolls 6 anytime soon. bethesda said that they have ideas for it but that's it. also there is elder scrolls online and the game would literally die when TES 6 comes out.

i also doubt that bethesda will release any other game for switch. maybe a port of an older game if skyrim sells okay.

The only other game I could see them releasing on the Switch is Fallout 4. But that would only happen when they inevitably make the complete edition with all dlc included for all the other systems.

I am sad that the Bethesda game on Switch isn't Doom.

Otherwise, I am very interested on how this will do. I could see it selling poorly or selling 1,000,000+ copies. Depends on how many Nintendo gamers missed out on it and/or how crazy Skyrim fans are.

Just a tip guys. Don't look this game up on the internet very much, because there are a lot of hidden things and surprising parts of the game that are best found by yourself. I looked up how to get a few abilities and such, and it spoiled some pretty significant parts of the game.

I'll buy this game the day it launches simply because it's Skyrim on the go, but I do need to know one crucial thing first... Does it have the DLC that the Remastered edition came with? If so then I am so excited for this game.

Not including the DLC seems like a pretty derp thing to do. No PR spin could ever justify that.

They have to give the most definitive edition the Switch will allow or it will be on them if it fails. It still may fail either way but they need to give the Switch proper treatment and not second rate. Wii U owners don't like second rate.

@DarthNocturnal Where did you hear it doesn't have DLC?

@FragRed

I never said it didn't. I just said that to not include it would be stupid. I'll be genuinely surprised if it doesn't.

Legendary Edition was made available about 3+ years ago, and on some platforms (or all), could be gotten for dirt cheap before too long. Special Edition included everything from the get-go, and Bethesda was even nice enough to give it to PC players for free if they already owned the base game + DLC.

So to release it on yet another platform 6 years later and NOT include DLC? Someone at Bethesda would have to be a bonehead to think that's a good idea.

@DarthNocturnal Apologies I misread your comment.

I would be extremely surprised if it didn't include all the DLC.

The DLC in this game is pretty great. I enjoyed all of it a lot.
