The Elder Scrolls Blades Is Available On Nintendo Switch

Right now, play Bethesda's mobile spin-off of their cherished franchise on another portable device.

I remember quite some time ago (to be more specific, almost a year ago) the developer Bethesda just revealed their mobile game, which is called The Elder Scrolls: Blades would make its way to the Nintendo Switch platform. Today, May 14th, 2020, is officially the day, as The Elder Scrolls: Blades now has gone live on this platform. Fortunately, this game still remains free-to-play, even though there is a 15 dollars "STARTER" bundle that comes with the Bloodfall King legendary set, 2,000 Gems, 30,000 Elder Scrolls Online Gold, a Sylvan Fountain decoration, and building materials.

If the last sentence did not clue you in then please allow me to be blunt: That is The Elder Scrolls: Blades, as a matter of fact, is lousy with micro-transactions. We all know that is a mobile game, so that's relatively parred for the course, but anyone hoping to jump in and have an experience akin to Skyrim will probably leave disappointed. And that is not to say that the game cannot be enjoyable, but you will be faced with multiple time-gates that could be relaxed with the just-right amount of cash, and also among many other things.

Well, personally, I am not a fan, to be honest: the combat and exploration are staid facsimiles of a true Elder Scrolls experience, and a lot of fans looking to play The Elder Scrolls on the go are much better served to buy Skyrim for the umpteenth time. Still, The Elder Scrolls: Blades seems to scratch that itch for many, and considering the game now has over a million downloads on the Google Play Store alone, and with a respectable 3.9 rating. Maybe I am just an old man who is shaking his fists at the sky? No one really cares about me...

Either way, the fans on the Nintendo Switch platform can download the game today and then sign-in with their account to link their progress across devices (and please keep in mind to enable cross-platform chat). An online connection is asked to play, though you do not need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Right now, Bethesda/ZeniMax, all I want is for you to complete squaring away The Elder Scrolls Online's performance and to port that to the Nintendo Switch. That is an Elder Scrolls Online game that I'd love to expect made portable (which, of course, is also littered with micro-transactions, which means you can get a lot of items by spending some ESO Gold, but, personally, I do not feel they impact the game itself negatively: and I believe Bethesda is gonna Bethesda at this point).
