As it is unspoken that all great games must come to Switch eventually, so it has come to pass that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will arrive on Nintendo's console later this year. As announced during Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation, this will be the complete version of the game, including both of its expansions: Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine. Pre-orders are available now for $60, with no release date yet more specific than later in 2019.
The physical edition of the game will come on a single, 32GB cartridge, with no additional downloads required. In order to get the game running smoothly on the Switch, however, it will run at 540p in handheld mode and up to 720p, with dynamic resolution enabled, on the big screen. We will have to see how that feels in practice, but a PR manager from developer CD Projeckt Red tweeted out a still from one of the game's most infamous scenes to show it off in action, and it looked serviceable, to say the least.
In addition to the cartridge the physical edition of the game will also ship with a map, a compendium, and stickers of Geralt's iconic wolf pendant, per Amazon's listing. As a definitive edition of a now-classic game, there are no pre-order bonuses announced at this time, so you can grab the full Witcher 3 experience from your preferred retailer.
