Skyrim Video Capture Now Supported On Nintendo Switch

Skyrim Video Capture

Skyrim has finally arrived to the Nintendo Switch and players so far have positively responded to the port’s ability to run the beloved open-world game on a Nintendo device, especially given how well it does in portable mode. Many have also been looking forward to the unique features included with this version with the motion control options and The Legend of Zelda-themed content even for those without a single Amiibo. However, some have been wondering if the game would allow for players to share clips of their gameplay with others. Now, it appears that these wishes have been granted as Skyrim video capture has been enabled for the Switch.

Bethesda has released the patch notes for the big day one update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on their official website, and it confirms that Nintendo has allowed for the relatively new video capture feature to work. Among other improvements, update 1.1 largely includes bug fixes and improvements as well as Chinese language support. The game was not shipped with the feature, so owners who want to use it will have to download the patch.

Video Capture was only recently made available for the Switch, just a week before the release of Super Mario Odyssey. Aside from Odyssey, the feature has only been available for Arms, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This would make Skyrim the first third-party title that Nintendo has allowed to use video capture on the Switch.

Surely, many Dragonborn fans are happy to know this feature is one that the Switch version of Skyrim Fus Ro Does. What do you guys think about Skyrim video capture being allowed for the Switch?
