Looks like Skyrim will, yet again, be re-released. This time, a recent rating by the Taiwanese ratings board revealed that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition had been rated for Nintendo Switch. However, the rating has since been removed, giving the leak further credibility.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition was originally released in November 2021 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC to coincide with the game’s 10th anniversary. The edition was never officially revealed for Nintendo Switch, but that might all change soon if the recent rating is to be believed.
Nintendo Switch previously received Skyrim Special Edition, which managed to run quite well on Nintendo’s hybrid console. Publisher Bethesda would later manage to (rather impressively) port games like DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to Nintendo Switch as well.
Skyrim Anniversary Edition includes a plethora of additional content, including new questlines, bosses, dungeons, spells, gear and even a new fishing mini-game in case you would rather kick your feet back in Riverwood, catch some fish and literally watch the world burn. Some content was also made by community creators and modders in partnership with Bethesda.
It’s not yet known if players who already own Skyrim Special Edition on Switch will be given the option to upgrade to the Anniversary Edition at a small price, though it might be the case since other platforms received the same option.
Meanwhile, developer Bethesda Game Studios are knee-deep in their next AAA game, Starfield. The company recently chose to delay the game to 2023, moving it out of its originally planned holiday 2022 date. Unfortunately, this also means that The Elder Scrolls VI might be further away from release now as a result, so we’ll have to be patient and find more enjoyment in Skyrim.
Skyrim Anniversary Edition is now available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
