During Bethesda’s E3 event they showed off a game we kind of knew about as it appeared in the original marketing materials for the new Nintendo console, Skyrim.
What we didn’t know, until now, was whether the game would make full use of the Switch features, it turns out it does. With motion control you can use the J-Con’s to control the action from swinging your sword to pulling on your bow. The game also appears to bring cross franchise support thanks to Amiibo support. In the video we see Zelda’s Link styled outfits and weaponry appear after the Link Amiibo is scanned in.
