"The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" provides solid foothold for newcomer Nintendo Switch after the tech giant finally pivots towards hosting this title from highly successful Bethesda franchise, sort of.

Most of the titles shown during Nintendo Switch reveal are exclusives but there are few who finally breached the insurmountable walls the former used to coral themselves. The best part - "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" is one of them. This might be sufficient reason to call Nintendo's attempt to recapture the gaming market as credible. However, let us take a break first and dissect what is the real score behind this circus.

While it is true that "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" is one of those featured in Nintendo Switch reveal, Game Spot reported that a spokesperson from Bethesda belied earlier speculations. The clarification clearly states that Bethesda is in partnership with Nintendo but there is no current title confirmed yet, including "Skyrim." However, the spokesman was quick to change gear and stressed that they will reveal specific titles in the future.

Now here we go again back in limbo due to Nintendo-Bethesda mockery. "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" is one of those classified by Nintendo as "representative gameplay" - for whatever it means. Well, it doesn't hurt to hope anyway because a derivative called "Skyrim Special Edition HD" is on its way, VG 24/7 reported. Who knows if it will finally land to Nintendo Switch?

With or without "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim," gamers can at least rely on "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." It is the lone third-party title confirmed for Nintendo Switch, apart from exclusives of course. Then everything will boil down in March during launching of this console because only then the final game roster will be announced.

To wrap up, the context of see to believe is not true with "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" teaser. The fog will soon lift and both Bethesda and Nintendo might at least admit that they are cooking something good for drooling gaming community.
