Once scornful that Nintendo hadn’t engaged with third-party publishers enough before Wii U was revealed to the world, Bethesda signalled a change in stance when The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was used Nintendo Switch preview trailer.

Despite the game’s appearance helping to put across the home gaming system’s portable concept, the publisher later went on to state that they “are not confirming any specific titles at this time.”

But now, in an interview with Glixel, Bethesda Game Studios director and executive producer Todd Howard has indicated that the port is very much in development and that the hardware demo that he saw at E3 2016 was the best he has ever seen.

“I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you – well, maybe that’s an N.D.A. thing. One of the best demos I’ve ever seen. Probably the best demo I’ve ever seen. At E3,” Howard responded, asked as to his thoughts about Nintendo Switch.

“I mean the device itself,” he clarified. “I think it’s really smart what they’re doing. We’re definitely going to be supporting it. It’s the first time we’ve done something on Nintendo. If you don’t count the old NES stuff. Home Alone. Or Where’s Waldo?”

Then, when asked as to whether you can really play Skyrim on the go, Howard replied: “It’s the same game on the TV and on the other screen.”

Nintendo Switch will release worldwide in March 2017.
