Maybe. Idk, I have a PC. And an Xbox One with full mod support. Yet I'm buying it for portability.

Someone was saying it would have mod support though... Probably have to wait for more details. I'd be shocked if it didn't though, at the very least like how PS does it.

(This post is going off the assumption that we're getting the Special Edition of Skyrim, which we might not be. Todd Howard just said Skyrim at the presentation, so who knows.)

Mod support for Special Edition is a far cry from normal modded Skyrim, though. The mods on PC are vastly more expansive than anything you could find in SE. They can completely change the game. I would much rather have regular modded Skyrim than buy any version of Special Edition. I guess we'll have to see how good the mod support is, if it gets mods at all.

@KirbyTheVampire thats what i was thinking. As a PC gamer, i dont see me sacrificing my 60+ mods just to play skyrim on the go. Once you mod skyrim, there isn't really any going back

I love Skyrim don't get me wrong if you have never played it before then by all means buy it. My issue is not only is it a 5 year old game (6 by the time it releases on the switch) it also costs £60. Plus it may or may not be the special edition. It may not come with the DLC.

Why didn't they just put Fallout 4 on there? It's only a year old. The final DLC packs just released. Why didn't they put that on the switch as a GOTY edition with all the DLC?

@ocelot20 I was just thinking that. While I want Skyrim as well I'd much rather they put Fall Out 4 on the system. However like was said above Skyrim might fit the whole what do I play now that I'm done with Zelda theme better.

What's the difference with mods? I'm one of the few that haven't played Skyrim, and while my notebook has decent specs I'm not sure it could run it, so I'm pretty excited for the Switch version.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Whatever you want it to be, really. You could do small stuff like custom weapons, or even add whole new buildings, towns, or even an entire expac worth of content.

In my PC game, I had the ability to craft lightsabers (any hilt with any color, complete with the noises). I also had a few pieces of gear from Zelda, such as the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, Mirror Shield (pre- and post censoring AND the Majora's Mask version), Gilded Sword, Hover Boots (that worked)... sky is the limit really... on PC, anyway.

Switch probably won't allow that sort of stuff, but it may permit modding similar to the PS4 version (ingame assets only). Not quite as crazy, but some interesting stuff can probably still happen.

Mods basically add anything and everything to the game. Look up a few mod showcases on YouTube and you'll get a basic idea.

Vanilla Skyrim is still super great, and you should play that before you get into PC modded Skyrim, if you ever do. (Especially if your computer can't run it. Might as well play a portable version that runs well than an unplayable non-portable mess)

One of the more well known mods for Skyrim replaces the dragons with Thomas the Tank Engine.

@Luna_110 The sky is the limit really. New weapons, new campaigns or lands, dumb stuff (like putting macho man randy savage's face on the dragons), new characters, new animation/spells or my favorite and why I use mods: graphical improvements. Bethesda makes horrible textures. I have replaced like 99 percent of the game and put in a lighting mod.

You can do away with a lot of the bugs.

The sheer hilarity and stupidity of that video....It's been awhile since I've been conflicted on how to react to what I've just watched.

Not sure if I would go to that level of using mods in Skyrim, but I would likely consider a few.

Idk about this game. Pretty much everyone who's wanted to play it has already. I know I have had my fill on ps3. Fallout 4 would have been better, but could the switch handle it?

@sentiententity I haven't played it and I wanted to but it wasn't a system seller for me. So this is perfect for me and I think plenty others. And don't forget, you can play this game on the go, which is pretty, pretty, pretty good.

i am not a big fan of mods, but there are some very important mods for skyrim like the one where books you have not read are glowing a little so you will know what you have to click on and what not. that mod alone is a reason to play this game on a platform that enables mods.

Ugh, books lol. Here I thought the Metroid Prime games had too much to read.

You don't have to read the whole book, if it's skill books you're talking about. Just open and close it, and you get the boost anyway.

Yeah I know but still if you want to learn more about the back story and other things you have to read a ton.

Out of curiosity, have there ever been instances where Skyrim mods have basically broken the game?

@Spoony_Tech: Not to digress too much, but care to elaborate on the reading a bit. I'm debating about downloading Metroid Prime Trilogy and am trying to figure out how story-heavy they are.

@Tyranexx There is a good deal of story there to read if you want. You scan objects and it tells you a bit about history, enemies, and many other thing. You can choose to ignore it if you like but either way these games need to be played! There's a reason why you see a lot of people begging for Prime 4. Also at 20$ or whatever it is now you can't go wrong with 3 high quality games!
