During Bethesda's E3 press conference, Todd Howard leaned in hard on a joke about Skyrim being available on every single platform with a sketch starring Keegan-Michael Key. In the sketch, Key plays Skyrim on a number of bizarre platforms, most notably an Amazon Alexa device.

Turns out, it was more than just a comedy sketch. You can actually play Skyrim on your Alexa. To enable it for your device, head here.

As a bit of an aside, there is something I can't quite put my finger on that feels familiar about this whole gag. I just don't know what it is, though.
