Speculations have started even long before on the "Skyrim Remastered" entry to Nintendo Switch. Now, it is not yet clear whether the game will have a grand access to the console as the developer and publisher Bethesda is yet to provide update to "Elder Scrolls 6".

The announcement trailer of Nintendo Switch broadly featured "Skyrim Special Edition", which led assumptions about the game's entry to the console. However, Bethesda ruled out these speculations and told fans that it is not yet confirmed whether the game would appear on the console, reports the Express.

Todd Howard, "Skyrim Remastered" director praised Nintendo Switch, which is set to launch in March 2017 and said that Bethesda will certainly support the console. "I love it. I got to play it. Probably the best demo I've ever seen. At E3," he told Glixel.

"It's the same game on the TV and on the other screen," Howard replied when asked whether "Skyrim Remastered" would be on Nintendo Switch. He added that he will be posting an update about the "Elder Scrolls 6" soon noting that it is not an active project at the moment as they have other important projects going on right now and that they need to be extra careful in setting expectations.

On the other hand, "Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition" features all contents from the original game alongside post-release DLC, which includes the Hearthfire home improvements DLC, the Dawnguard expansion and questline and the Dragonborn add-on that sports a new location. Additionally, Bethesda has ruled out a new DLC.

In regards to Nintendo Switch, a retailer also revealed that the console would cost £200 to compete the PlayStation 4, which costs $249 although Nintendo has not confirmed it yet. GameStop CEO Paul Raines also said that Nintendo Switch may have a sort of motion controls, which he commented as a tremendous game-changer.
