Honestly, at this point I’d be less surprised if the Nintendo’s bullish little hybrid couldn’t solve climate change, whilst performing heart surgery on a tic and burping Bethovens fifth. And yet here I am again, aghast, bewildered but throughly delighted to see that “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”, through some mythical, Polish sorcery, will be coming to the Switch. Featuring not only the main game itself but the myriad of DLC’s, this ambitious iteration could well be the most definitive, despite the potentially compromising rendering limitations that are destined to burden the little console that could. But personally I think this is small price to pay for such portability. To embrace the true spiritual power of Nintendo Switch: as a mobile vessel that allows us to play games we already own, but on the toilet. This my friends, is the dream we all share.
Winner of over 800 awards, including 250 Game of the Year awards, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an RPG set in a fantastic open world full of adventure, danger, and mystery. As professional monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, gamers must set out to find the Child of Prophecy — a powerful entity that may send the world spiraling toward destruction. Along the way, the witcher will find himself facing not only mighty foes, but also difficult choices, the consequences of which will ripple throughout the game’s epic narrative.
Ported to Nintendo Switch by Saber Interactive in close cooperation with CD PROJEKT RED, the game is set to launch this year both digitally and in retail. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition for Nintendo Switch comes with the base game, as well as every piece of additional content ever released. This includes both story expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, as well as all 16 free DLCs. In total, the Complete Edition offers over 150 hours of gameplay, for the first time playable truly on-the-go.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the first game from the franchise to be released on a Nintendo console, introducing the series to brand new audience, as well as giving anyone who already played Geralt of Rivia’s final adventure a chance to experience it again on the go.
