During Bethesda’s E3 conference, the company released a new trailer for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch. The highlight of the video was a special collaboration with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Players could unlock Breath of the Wild themed armor, the Master Sword, and of course the Hylian Shield.
But how exactly did this collaboration came about? Bethesda’s Vice President of Marketing, Pete Hines, revealed the details in an interview at E3.
“… talked to the Breath of the Wild folks, and they were big Skyrim fans themselves and loved the idea. We really wanted to kind of do an integration with them – their open world thing, our open world thing. It was a lot of fun. They were great with proividing us with all kinds of assets to make it feel like a cool, unique thing for Skyrim.”
It’s great to see Nintendo being open with collaborations like this these days, and we certainly hope for more to come.
