Bethesda posts spoof cover of Skyrim for the SNES

The company was one of many to celebrate the launch of the SNES Mini.

The Super Nintendo Classic Mini was launched last week, including 21 games originally released for the console, and all weekend there's been a plethora of gamers talking about the console, one of which was Bethesda, who shared an interesting picture on Twitter.

Bethesda and Nintendo don't often go in a sentence together, but that's going to change when Skyrim comes to the Switch on November 17, something they expressed excitement for when they wrote: "Congrats to Nintendo on the launch of the #SNESClassic. The Elder Scrolls finally comes to a Nintendo console on Nov. 17th! #SkyrimSwitch."

That's not the most exciting thing, though, as the Twitter account also shared a picture of Skyrim as a Super Nintendo game. While nothing fancy, they have captured the look of the era, and leaves us wondering what a pixelated 16-bit Skyrim would have looked like.

With Bethesda releasing the game on every platform known to man right now, we really wouldn't be surprised to see it on the SNES. Would you have bought a SNES version of Skyrim?
