Bethesda has brought its wildly-successful RPG Elder Scrolls: Skyrim to basically every platform, from the PS3 to PS4 to PC to the Nintendo Switch. This is something Bethesda noticed and made a fantastic video, found below, highlighting another port for Amazon Echo. I'm not sure if this is a full-fledged game or just a really elaborate joke, but there is bound to be someone that will see this through to the end.

Skyrim has come to the Amazon Alexa, in the form of Skyrim Very Special Edition - this is not a joke, even though Bethesda treated it like one in its press conference.

During Bethesda's E3 show early this morning, there was a cute video starring Keegan-Michael Key about Skyrim coming to Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. But the real highlight is how he's able to play Skyrim on.Alexa? It's actually real, albeit in a very tongue-in-cheek way.

Then Greg Miller from Kinda Funny Games got into the act, showing how he could play the game with Alexa as well. To start using it, all you need to do is open the menu within the Alexa app, navigate to skills, and then search for Skyrim: Very Special Edition. But amazingly, it's an actual Alexa Skill you can enable now, allowing you to "quest and explore the dungeons of Skyrim" and "walk straight up a mountain instead of going around" using only the power of your Thu'um.

It already has RPGs Dungeon Adventure, and Shadow Run so why not a dragon-battling multi-threaded choose your own adventure, complete with Skyrim mythos?
