Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition has reportedly been rated for Switch
The remaster was released for other consoles in November 2021
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition has reportedly been rated for Nintendo Switch.
The game is said to have been classified for release on Nintendo’s console by the Taiwanese ratings board, which has previously revealed a number of games prior to their official announcements.
The Elder Scrolls Anniversary classification no longer appears to be viewable online, perhaps suggesting it has been removed because it was listed in error or ahead of schedule, although not before Switch Brasil took a screenshot of it.
Announced last August, the latest remaster of the popular RPG was released for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC in November 2021 to coincide with the game’s 10th anniversary.
The Skyrim Anniversary Edition followed the 2013 Legendary Edition and the 2016 Special Edition. The Anniversary Edition includes everything from the Special Edition – an enhanced version of the main game and its Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn expansions.
It also includes 500 pieces of content from the game’s Creation Club, which includes quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons and spells made by both Bethesda and community creators.
Last November, Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard said he wished the company could release The Elder Scrolls 6 sooner than planned, while explaining why the game is still likely some years away.
Speaking to IGN, Howard admitted the extended wait between series entries was not ideal. “Would you plan to have the kind of gap we’re having between Skyrim and the follow-up? I can’t say that’s a good thing,” he said.
“I wish I could wave a wand and the game that we want to make, and we have or haven’t started things on just came out. Absolutely. But there’s other things we want to do, right? Obviously, Fallout 4 was a huge success, we spent a lot of time on that. We wanted to go into online with Fallout 76.
“We felt doing something like Starfield – we’d wanted to do something else for a long time and play in a new universe. Well, if not now—I’m going back in time, we started it right after Fallout 4, so 2015, end of it—if not now, when? And it felt like the when, if we didn’t do it then, the when could be never.
“And we felt pretty good with where Elder Scrolls was as a franchise, particularly with Elder Scrolls Online, that now was the time we could do Starfield,” Howard continued.
“That being said, everything takes longer than we would like as well, but we want to make sure that we get it right. Hopefully Elder Scrolls 6, you don’t want to say hey, that it’s worth that kind of wait, but that it does stand up to the series as it has been in a really big, impactful way for when it comes out.”
Bethesda announced last week that Starfield and Redfall have been delayed from this year to the first half of 2023.
