Bethesda's been one of the top third-party supporters for the Switch, releasing games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and DOOM on the hybrid system. It followed this up with other titles like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and even a port of the mobile game, Fallout Shelter.
While many fans of the company were hoping a proper Fallout game would be announced for Nintendo's latest platform at this year's E3, instead, we got our first look at The Elder Scrolls: Blades on the Switch – featuring motion controls. So, with this game now locked in alongside DOOM Eternal and Wolfenstein: Youngblood, what else can Switch owners expect from Bethesda?
In the latest episode of the Nintendo Power podcast, Pete Hines – the vice president of PR and marketing at Bethesda spoke about the 25th anniversary of DOOM, revealing the company had "a lot of stuff" planned for QuakeCon and perhaps even some surprises for Nintendo fans in the future.
"Who knows, maybe some more surprises for Nintendo fans on the way."
Hines continued on by thanking Nintendo fans for being so supportive of the Bethesda's Switch releases:
"Honestly, thank you guys so much for your support. We talk a lot with Nintendo and it's great to see sort of how many folks play Nintendo stuff that try Bethesda games, and how many folks come in and have been getting Nintendo Switch just to play Bethesda things and then moved on to start playing other things on the Nintendo Switch. I mean it's clear...the kind of stuff we make resonates with the Nintendo audience. It's been awesome"
At this year's E3, Nintendo Life's video producer Zion Grassl had the chance to chat with Matt Carofano – the Art Director at Bethesda Game Studios – about The Elder Scrolls: Blades.
