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, and the [[Skyrim:Glitches|glitches]] are the same with the exception of lag issues being less prevalent on PC.
 
The Nintendo Switch version of [[Skyrim:Skyrim|Skyrim]] was released on November 17, 2017, with all add-ons included. It is based on the [[Skyrim:Special Edition|Special Edition]] and contains gameplay features and patches incorporated into that release. The Switch edition also features motion controls and compatibility with Nintendo's [[wikipedia:Amiibo|amiibo figures]].

==Downloadable Content==
There is no downloadable content for the Nintendo Switch version. As in other Special Edition releases, all three [[SR:Add-ons|official add-ons]] are already included, and cannot be disabled individually. [[SR:Creation Club|Creation Club]] content is not available.
 
==Zelda-themed Items==
[[File:SR-place-Throat of the World Switch.jpg|thumb|right|The chest at the Throat of the World]]
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.

==Amiibo==
[[File:SR-menu-Amiibo.jpg|400px|thumb|The amiibo power]]
One feature unique to the Nintendo Switch version of the game is compatibility with Nintendo's amiibo figures: you can tap your amiibo figures against the Switch for a treasure chest of items to appear in-game. This is done by equipping the [[SR:Powers#amiibo|amiibo Lesser 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.
 
The chests summoned by Legend of Zelda amiibo are styled after the chests from ''The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild'' and play the "discovered-a-secret" chime from the Zelda games, while non-Zelda amiibo summon Skyrim-styled chests and are accompanied by chanting.
 
===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:
