£15 cheaper than Amazon.


The legendary open-world adventure where you can be anyone and do anything, now allows you to play anywhere – at home on your TV or on the go. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch includes all-new exclusive features like motion control for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda franchise, and amiibo (sold separately) compatibility.

Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. Skyrim also includes all official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Features:Live another life, in another world – play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want: defeat dragons, explore dungeons, interact with the people of the world, build a house, start a family, and master skills, spells, and weapons. Set your own pace in a world that alters dynamically based on your choices.

Stunning graphics and immersive gameplay – Skyrim brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, flowing rivers and ancient dungeons.

You are what you play – choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. Play any way you want and define your character through your actions.

Gain gear inspired by The Legend of Zelda – you can tap compatible The Legend of Zelda character amiibo figures (sold separately) to gain outfits and gear inspired by the series. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian shield, or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Legend of Zelda amiibo figures include those from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series, 30th Anniversary - The Legend of Zelda series, Super Smash Bros. series, and The Legend of Zelda series.

Motion controls – use all-new motion controls exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version: battle with melee weapons, aim your bow, or pick locks.

amiibo compatible – you can tap compatible amiibo figures to receive a chest of loot, also exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version

i dont think the remastered edition has every been a quid on PC, i really don't understand why people post comments like this. is it expensive? probably but its the cheapest for the Switch and when it came out for Xbox and ps4 it was about £35-40, so its not that bad for a switch game even more so when other retailers as selling it at £59.99

They're definitely dropping it in some capacity soon. £59.99 is Amazon's gaming placeholder price.

if i already made on order with code, will the code carry over when they price drop?
Is this the same game as the one that can we out on the 360? Appreciate there are some differences with controls and gear but is fundamentally the same game? Sorry for my ignorance!

I bought it on the PC for £6 with the DLC before the special edition came out, and the update was free. It's a lot of game even for £45 though so it's probably worth it, and there's not a great selection of games on the Switch yet to compete with it.

Launch price was £35... So it's still a bitter pill to swallow. You could download the HD pack DLC on PC for free!
This game is 6 years old.

if think this is bad those who want the VR version for the PS4 will have to buy it again(seems no discount etc for those who already own it) and thats around £40.

but i'am happy to pay this to play skyrim on the go

I've pre-ordered with the code from Amazon. I'm confident that when they confirm the listing (with actual release date and final product image) the price will be a little more... acceptable. With the prime pre-order discount and the code I'm expecting to pay £35. Otherwise I'll just cancel it.

The Lord of the Rings is over 60 years old and still a great read so what's your point?

its not a "reprint" really is it? as its never been on a Nintendo console, no elder scrolls game have so they will have to build it more or less from the ground up for the switch, but ideally its should of been £30

I suppose you're right, but in my experience, most re-releases, especially of such older games, tend to have a discounted price. I think charging full-price for a game that came out in 2011 is just a tad much. If Nintendo fans want to pay that price, fair does, but I don't think they should have to.

If what has been written on another thread about this is true then larger games on the Switch have to charge more for the increased cost in flash memory when making the cartridge.
You only have to look at Amazon's pricing to see that switch games do get a lot more reasonable after a few months. Might as well wait for this one.
The curse of the Nintendo Switch tax strikes again! Clearly more intent on fleecing fans so loyal they will buy anything and everything Nintendo,regardless of price, than looking for some wider appeal and bigger market share.
£45 for yet another release of this. The Switch can't last more than a few years if it's relying on Zelda, loads of ports from other consoles and party games.

if actually did a little research it has more than that coming, its biggest problem is the overpriced game carts, i wouldn't be surprised if its a sd card inside the cart!

but i do think it getting to many ports, which is strange as last gen Nintendo fanboys moaned about ports and didnt want them and now they are ok

I was waiting for someone to come out with that.

As with all the current consoles, digital price is normally the same if not higher than a physical release, the general consensus as to why is they don't want to upset the retailers by slashing the digital prices (even though there are less costs distributing a digital version)

It was full price when they released it on PS4/XBox one last year.

Personally I think the entry price is worth it for Skyrim on the handheld.

What about Odyssey, Xenoblade, Splatoon, ARMS, Fire Emblem, Yoshi, Kirby and Metroid? And unannounced games from Retro and Platinum.. To be fair, Switch is probably having the strongest first-year line up for this/last gen..

So the notorious 'Switch tax' needlessly bumps up the price of digitally distributed games too seemingly because Nintendo prioritises GAME and the like ahead of the consumers actually using their products.
Too much for a 6 year old game, especially considering it got "redone" last year but was cheaper. As for playing it on the go a laptop did that 6 years ago.

get your point but playing on a laptop is not really playing it on the go!

i would be interesting see how this would of gone if it had been the rumoured Red Dead redemption.

do they give you the reduced price and then apply the £5? e.g if I was to pre order now at £49.99 and apply the code and they reduce it to £44.99 in a few weeks do they then reduce it more?

No it's nevery been available on PC. At this price for a game this old, it certainly is NOT a deal.
