The Elder Scrolls Blades

Last week, the latest Nintendo Download round-up for North America said The Elder Scrolls: Blades would be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on 12th May. While it didn't happen in the end, a new release date has now popped up on the Switch eShop in the US.

Instead of the 12th May, the free-to-play mobile title is now "estimated" to arrive on 14th May. The game's not even listed on the UK eShop at the time of writing, but Nintendo's website in this region originally said it was due out on 12th May as well.

Whenever Blades shows up on the eShop, players will have the option to purchase a "Quick-Start Edition" for $14.99 USD. This pack comes with exclusive armour, powerful weapons, valuable scrolls, building materials, 2,000 Gems, and 30,000 Gold.

The Switch version will include motion control support, cross-platform PvP matches, and cross-progression - allowing you to continue your play session on a mobile device. An online connection will also be required to play the game.
