+ lots of info, much of it from the official guidebook
The purpose of this page is to document some aspects of Skyrim that are specific to the '''Nintendo Switch''' version of the game. The vast majority of gameplay is identical on all platforms (PC, Xbox, PlayStation, or Switch): the quests are the same, the [[Skyrim:Glitches|glitches]] are the same with exception to lag issues being less prevalent on PC.
 
The Nintendo Switch version of [[Skyrim:Skyrim|Skyrim]] released in November 17, 2017, with all DLC included. The Switch edition also featured motion controls and compatibility with Nintendo's "amiibo" figures.

==Missing PC Features==
==Amiibo==
Some of the PC features that are not available on the Nintendo Switch are:
One unique feature to the Nintendo Switch version of the game is compatibility with Nintendo's "amiibo" figures: once daily you can tap your amiibo figures the Switch for a treasure chest of items to appear in-game.
* The [[Skyrim:Console|console]]. This means that in many cases bug fixes that are used by PC players are not available to Nintendo Switch players. It also means that most cheats and exploits are not available.
* The [[Skyrim:Creation Kit|Creation Kit]]. The Creation Kit does not directly affect game play; rather it allows the game files to be viewed and edited. A lot of the information on the Wiki is derived from the Creation Kit, because it allows the factors controlling game play to be easily identified.
* Mods cannot be used on the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
 
==Downloadable Content==
While any compatible Amiibo will yield a chest full of items, the chest summoned by Legend of Zelda figures - including the Breath of the Wild series, 30th Anniversary series, Super Smash Bros. series, and The Legend of Zelda series - have a 20% chance of having Zelda-themed item inside, such as the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Champion's Tunic, all of which can also be found in a hidden chest on the [[Skyrim:Throat of the World|Throat of the World]]
All DLC is included with the Nintendo Switch version.
 
==Zelda-Themed Items==
 
Three items based on ''The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild'' are available in the Nintendo Switch edition of Skyrim: the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Champion's Tunic. They can be obtained either through chests summoned with the amiibo power, or found in a hidden chest on the [[Skyrim:Throat of the World|Throat of the World]] near the Word Wall without requiring any amiibo.
 
All items can be improved through crafting, and can be enchanted. The armor is considered light armor.

==Amiibo and Nintendo-Themed Items==
One unique feature to the Nintendo Switch version of the game is compatibility with Nintendo's "amiibo" figures: once daily you can tap your amiibo figures the Switch for a treasure chest of items to appear in-game. This is done by equipping the "amiibo" power (found in the Magic menu, under "Powers") and casting it at the ground, where a glowing circle will appear, and then tapping the figure to the right Joy-Con controller. This can be done once every 24 real-life hours per amiibo.
 
The items inside the chest will vary based on the amiibo used:
* '''Non-Legend of Zelda figures''': food, gold coins, ingredients
* '''Legend of Zelda figures released before May 19, 2017 (listed in table below)''': 20% chance for one of the three Zelda-themed items, plus additional items as listed in the table below
* '''Legend of Zelda figures released after May 19, 2017''': 20% chance for one of the three Zelda-themed items, plus armor, arrows, fruit, and/or weapons.
 
The chance of getting one of the Zelda items will increase with 5 compatible amiibo taps within five days (for instance, tapping the same one five days in a row, or tapping five compatible amiibo within one day), and resets after you get one of the items. While you can get unlimited amounts of the Champion's Tunic or Hylian Shield, there can only be one Master Sword.
 
===Specific Drops===
 
The following Legend of Zelda amiibo, released before May 19, 2017, give specific categories of items in addition to the chance of getting a Zelda item:
