Ever wanted to play Skyrim with mods while on-the-go? Nintendo's new Switch console-and-handheld hybrid may make this dream a reality.

Despite Bethesda's warnings, Skyrim: Special Edition will reportedly launch as a Nintendo Switch launch game, with mod support coming to the platform at a later date.

 

Unnamed sources at Nintendo have told Laura Kate Dale at Lets Play Video Games that Skyrim: Special Edition is not only coming to the Nintendo Switch, but it'll be a day-one game. Sadly, mod support likely won't be available at the game's launch, and Switch's mods will be similar to the Skyrim's PS4 gimped mod support: limited to just 1GB and no new textures or models.

"Also, that Skyrim port Bethesda refuse to confirm is real is totally happening. We've heard it's planned to be a launch day release for the system, to mirror the recent remastered version of the game, and to allow mods at some time post-launch.

 

"Mod support for Skyrim will not be there from day one, and much like the PS4 will be limited to mods made using existing in-game assets."

One of the most anticipated Switch games, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, apparently won't launch with the Nintendo Switch in March 2017.

 

Even still, the Skyrim news is pretty awesome info for Nintendo fans. Being able to play a massive game like Skryim with a portable system with any sort of mod support is amazing, and adds an entirely new dimension to the experience.

 

Hell, being able to easily swap your Skyrim experience to a tablet for on-the-go play is revolutionary enough, and even though the mods are quite limited, this is a revolutionary push.

 

Remember that none of this information has been confirmed or verified, and remains reports and speculation at this time.
