Winner of over 800 awards, including 250 Game of the Year awards, The Witcher 3: Wild Huntis 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.

Set to launch this year both digitally and in retail, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Editionfor 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 game is being ported to Nintendo Switch by Saber Interactive in close cooperation with CD PROJEKT RED.



In addition to the game card housing the entirety of the Complete Edition's content, the box will also come with a set of physical goodies: The Witcher Universe compendium, game map, and stickers.

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.

Holy crap. Witcher 3 on ARM system? That's very cool.
Another interesting thing is that Saber interactive is on the roll this year with all of the big internal and outsourced projects. No wonder they had no time to fix QC netcode for Tim Willits )))
Now I have an unexpected itch for a used Switch.

You would enjoy it way more on your PC. It is an absolutely beautiful game at 4K or 1440P.

That doesn't mean that it will not be an enjoyable game/experience.
Is what I said factually incorrect somehow?
Put simply, yes. "Ugly" is a fully subjective term. Example, I think Final Fantasy 7 is one of the most sloppy and ugly games ever made because it's little more than a hodge-podge of very different graphical styles and technologies slapped together in one game.

Careful now the two of you, your PC snobbery is showing...

There is absolutely nothing subjective about lower resolutions and settings. We aren't talking about another game that would be for instance different stylistically or something of the sort. Same game, same engine, lower graphical effects hence uglier. That's as objective as it can get, try again :)

i have a switch and love it,i really do.
but my main concern will be the framerates.think it will struggle in certain areas like novigrad for example.
as long as they can maintain a steady 30fps i will be happy.
