It appears that rumors regarding a The Witcher 3 port to the Nintendo Switch might hold some truth. Yes, CD Projekt Red‘s incredible game may finally be coming to the system later this year.
The rumors of the game’s arrival on the Switch first emerged after a French retailer listed the Nintendo Switch version of The Witcher 3 alongside Assassin’s Creed III (which released a little while later.) Fuel was added to the fire when a Youtuber named Doctre81 uncovered that CD Projekt Red had put out a job listing for a software engineer for GOG Galaxy. The job listing named multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch. GOG.com is a digital distribution platform for games with GOG Galaxy serving as their gaming client. Both have worked on Witcher titles in the past, albeit smaller tie in games like GWENT: The Witcher Card Game.
A user by the name of “Jim_Cacher” over on ResetEra has apparently found evidence that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition for the Nintendo switch is very much a reality. According to Jim_Cacher’s evidence, its alleged release will be sometime in September of this year.
(Translated: “[Breaking! Witcher 3 GOTY Edition is coming to Switch in September.] According to a reliable source from distributor, Witcher 3 GOTY Edition is coming to Switch in September. Chinese localization exclusive to Asia version.”)
There are also multiple listings for the game on a Chinese online shopping website named Taobao.com which show the box art for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
