Today Nintendo introduced the world to their latest home console, which was code named the “NX” but will officially be called the Nintendo Switch.
To show their excited fanbase, who have been desperately awaiting more info on the new console, what it looks like, Nintendo has released a preview trailer. It shows all the good stuff you’d want to see if you’re interested in buying one, of course. But it also includes some surprises, such as the ability to play Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. That’s the kind of game Nintendo users usually miss out on, and now they’ll get a chance to get lost in that world like many others have before them, and will be again soon with the release of Skyrim Remastered. It could also be exciting for longtime fans of Skyrim, as the new console will give them the option of playing it anywhere.
You can see how the console looks in the trailer below.
