The one Elder Scrolls announcement of Bethesda's E3 showcase that everyone assumed to be a joke is, in fact, real.

Bethesda was poking fun at itself for releasing Skyrim on so many different consoles over the years and created a trailer for Skyrim on the Amazon Alexa. Through the Amazon store app on iOS, or the Amazon Alexa app on Android, you can click the Alexa icon and just ask her to open Skyrim.
