You should know by now that The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is coming to the Nintendo Switch, along with all its expansions, some time this year. You may have assumed it would be Witcher “lite”, but, no, CD Projekt Red have confirmed that it’s pretty much all there.
We’re not really cutting anything. The biggest changes that we made involve the user interface and how you interact is a bit different on the Switch compared to other versions.
Due to hardware limitations, they’ve also dropped the density of the foliage and made the draw distance a little lower, but not in a way that seems very noticeable. I mean, you’d probably notice if you originally played it on PC, with all the shadows dialled up to 11 (show off), but it still looks good.
According to CD Projekt Red, the Switch version of Witcher 3 will run at 540p in handheld mode and 720p while docked, with dynamic resolution enabled. The port is being developed by Saber Interactive, the company that’s also responsible for Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt – Complete Edition will be released as both physical and digital copies, with a download size around 32GB.
