Skyrim for $71.16: digital copies of Bethesda games have risen in price on Nintendo Switch
Recently in the Russian segment of the digital store, Nintendo eShop, prices for Nintendo Switch products have risen due to the revaluation of the ruble against the euro. Now, Bethesda Softworks has followed suit, raising the price of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, DOOM, DOOM Eternal, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released almost 10 years ago and was released on Nintendo Switch in November 2017. Despite the venerable age of the project, the publisher asks $71.61 for the digital version of the game in the Nintendo eShop. Shooters Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and DOOM Eternal sell for the same price. But DOOM (2016) is a little cheaper – $59.30.
The price hike has not affected several other Bethesda Softworks games, such as the classic DOOM, DOOM II and DOOM 3, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. However, the price level has not yet reached Nintendo’s products. As a reminder, games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate recently cost $83.02 in the digital store Nintendo eShop.
