The Witcher fans will be pleased to know that the third instalment is coming to the Nintendo Switch. This was announced at the Nintendo Direct at E3 this year in a short teaser trailer. A release date wasn’t announced alongside the trailer, but it has been confirmed for later this year. The Witcher 3 will release in the Complete Edition, which includes the Hearts of Stone, and the Blood and Wine expansions, as well as every other piece of DLC that has previously been released.
This is the first game from CD Projekt Red that will release on a Nintendo console. Although there are clear downgrades from the Switch port compared to the PS4 release, this is a huge accomplishment for the developers. The Witcher 3 originally released in 2015, and since then has won many awards, such as the Game Award for the Game of The Year, and the Best Role Playing Game in 2015. Many fans consider this to be one of the greatest RPG’s of this current generation, and the best title in The Witcher series. The Witcher 3 has also received a Metacritic score of 92 for the PS4 version, 93 for the PC version, and 91 for the Xbox One version.
Culture of Gaming‘s very own Mike Szoke commented on The Witcher series saying that it “is praised for its deep, engaging narrative and characters, as well as the third game for its rich, unique combat system that mixes minor spell casting with some of the smoothest third person swordplay in all of gaming. You will grow to care deeply about the characters you surround yourself with, no matter who you choose to focus on.” You can read the rest of his review here.
