- Unparalleled novel-like story spanning over 150 hours of gameplay. - With over 100 hours of core and side-quest gameplay and over 50 hours of additional content, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt combines the intense, plot-driven pull of traditional RPGs with the freedom of choice only open world games can offer.

Recently I have observed a troubling trend perpetrated by certain game developers wherein a game box would be made available for purchase with the disappointing surprise of NO CARTRIDGE inside the box, replaced with a 'download code'. Talk about cutting corners. Most recent case to mind is Overwatch for the Nintendo Switch. A $40 dollar plastic case with a piece of paper inside. They didn't even bother producing a game cartridge. Tsk, tsk, What an utter shame for what used to be an excellent games company. Blizzard has been in hot water controversies lately, and they need to boost their coffers by porting their games to new platforms, while keeping costs to its lowest possible minimum? Anyways, I'm diverging from the point I'm trying to make.
The reason I brought up Overwatch for the switch is to make a night and day comparison of how a game release SHOULD be done. Never mind all the goodies I mentioned that comes with every copy of Witcher 3 for the Switch. The game also comes with ALL DLC ever released. Think about that for a moment. It's already a feat being able to port an incredible huge game to a porta-console that could hardly be considered a powerhouse. But to also bundle in every single piece of DLC, both minor and major, and wrap everything up in a feature packed bundle? That is just plain amazing.
I hope I've made a sound argument for why every Switch owner who's an RPG fan should buy this game. Congratulations to CD Project Red, and congratulations to me for buying this game.
I love this game and am so glad that they ported it to the switch, it is a fantastic time and to be able to play it wherever I want is fantastic. If you're on the edge about buying it, do it as I am fairly certain you won't regret it!
Here’s the thing: while the Witcher 3 looks far better on PS4/Xbox One (or especially PC) than it does on the Switch, the mere fact that it’s been ported to Switch is a technical marvel.
The bottom line here is simple. The game plays smoothly. The load times are far quicker than they were for me on PS4. The frame rate keeps up at around a steady 30fps. The graphical downgrade, while definitely noticeable, is very passable and, on the small switch screen, looks just fine. It’s literally the entirety of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt all on one 32gb cart - no downloads required (not for the DLC, not for a patch). It’s all here. All included. And that’s just insane.
Not only that, but the game comes with extra goodies that most companies wouldn’t even consider these days (i.e., map, manual, stickers).
I can’t believe I’m playing this game on a portable system. I can’t believe it runs as well as it does - plays as good as it does. I’m so glad CDPR decided to go through the effort of porting this game to Switch; so glad Saber Interactive worked hard to make it worthwhile.
If you haven’t played The Witcher, it’s an amazingly detailed, well crafted RPG. If you have and are on the fence about buying it again, it’s discounted $10 already - you can play it on-the-go - and you can support CDPR for doing something most companies aren’t willing to do with their AAA games, taking the time and resources to port them over to Switch so we can enjoy them portably.
