The Witcher 3 announced for Nintendo Switch at E3 2019

The beloved RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is making the jump to Nintendo Switch this year.


Fans still have about a year to wait until CDProjekt Red’s highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 releases. However, their 2015 hit The Witcher 3 will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition.

Geralt's jump to the Nintendo Switch was announced during the Nintendo E3 2019 Direct, and it looks like they're bringing the entire saga of the third chapter of Geralt's story to the portable and home console hybrid from Nintendo. Of course, it will be interesting to see how the game performs on the Nintendo Switch, as it has even had issues running on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC due to just how intensive it is. 

Still, though, having the option to play The Witcher 3 from the comfort of the Nintendo Switch is definitely enticing for fans of CD Projekt Red’s work on the series. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will include all of the DLC and expansions released for The Witcher 3 previously, including Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone. If you’ve never played through The Witcher 3, then now is the perfect chance to experience one of the best RPGs ever released.

When I reviewed The Witcher 3 back at its release, I wrote, “The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is a masterfully written rollercoaster, and though there is a lot to do in the game, I never felt overwhelmed by the Side Quests and optional tasks. CD Projekt Red has done a great job of bringing this saga to a close. The best part about all of this, however, is the fact that CD Projekt RED stayed true to its word. Every choice you make will determine how the story unfolds, and what the world becomes at the end of it all.” My feelings about the title still stand today and I'm intrigued to see how it works on the Switch.
