The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is officially coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019 - entire game fits on Switch cartridgePlatforms: Nintendo Switch
After weeks of rumours and speculation about the existence of a Nintendo Switch port of CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Nintendo finally confirmed in their E3 2019 Nintendo Direct that the game's Complete Edition is coming, and it'll be out in 2019.
The first trailer can be seen above, and from the little bit of gameplay we can see, the Switch's less powerful hardware doesn't seem to be taking too drastic of a hit on the visuals.
In a press release, CD Projekt Red reveal what players can expect from the Switch port, which is being developed by Saber Interactive in close cooperation with CD Projekt Red.
"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. The release of the game on Nintendo Switch is also bound to further cement Wild Hunt’s status as the best-selling title of the franchise, which currently makes for more than half of the series’ 40 million copies sold."
The press release also revealed something incredibly impressive, the entirety of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition is stored on the game cartridge. Those who have played the game will know that this statement is surprising, considering how enormous and taxing The Witcher 3 is.
