We’re all familiar with the joke. What console could Bethesda possibly port Skyrim to next? It seemed the gaming publisher was almost out of options until Todd Howard took the stage tonight and revealed Skyrim for Alexa.

Of course this was a joke, but it’s nice to see that Bethesda is perfectly aware of how many times they’ve released
Skyrim. The trailer, starring Keegan-Michael Key, even tells us to look out for the Samsung Fridge and Etch-A-Sketch ports of the game.

You can see the “trailer” above!

Update: So…part of this isn’t a joke after all: the Alexa part. That’s right, it’s actually real. After the conference concluded, people discovered that Skyrim: Very Special Edition is actually downloadable via the Amazon Alexa app or on your Android phone. The full steps to get it working can be found over on Polygon.

Alas, the Fridge and Etch-A-Sketch ports are still unavailable, but no doubt Todd Howard is pushing his team hard to make them a reality, so perhaps those will be announced at E3 2019. I guess the real question is, after that, where can they take Skyrim next? 

For the record, my money’s on a Skyrim: Toaster Edition.

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
