Surprise, The Elder Scrolls: Blades now available at Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Change Lite. During E3 2019, Bethesda announced it would bring a cellphone Elder Scrolls experience to the platform, however, it’s not clear when this will happen, well, at least until this week. Earlier this week, Nintendo eShop’s list of games went up earlier and revealed that divisive and freely played games fell on the Switch on May 14, also known as today.
Not surprisingly, the list was quickly withdrawn, but not before the Internet received a receipt. As a result, even though this is officially a surprise release, unofficially we have known about this release for several days. That said, it appears even a positive magic release surprise doesn’t help the port. The Nintendo Switch launch trailer, which you can see below, now has more dislikes than likes, which is rare for video game trailers.
While The Elder Scrolls: Blades has found its audience on mobile, in fact it is quite divisive for gamers as a whole. Why? First, because this is a mobile entry in a loved and popular franchise that hasn’t gotten a decent entry since 2012. And two, because this is a very free mobile game.
A free, playable underground crawler – which supports up to two players – will need a simple 1.2 GB space. Meanwhile, it supports the following languages: French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and English.
Below, you can read more about this game, thanks to the official overview of its main features:
