The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition Bundle launches on Nintendo Switch for $70

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition Bundle just launched on Nintendo Switch for a ridiculous price.

How many times can Bethesda repackage Skyrim? Apparently, as many times as people will continue to pay for it. They’re going to milk it for all it’s worth.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition Bundle just launched on the Nintendo Switch. Can you guess how much they want for this ten-year-old game? $30? $50? $60?

Nope!

They’re asking $70 for it. Skyrim Anniversary Edition is just $50 on PC. Of course, the PC version will always be better than any port that they can put out on the Nintendo Switch, so you’re really getting double-boned here.

And before you think “it must be because it’s a cartridge,” we’re talking about the digital version. That means that in addition to paying $70 for a digital game, you have to store it on an SD card that you buy. (Granted, it’s only 5GB.)

The Anniversary Edition does include a lot of content. You get the base game and add-ons from the Skyrim Special Edition: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. Plus, you get “pre-existing and new content from Creation Club including quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons, spells, and more.”
