The Witcher is something that Nintendo fans have been craving for a long, and I mean LONG time. Thankfully for those wanting to the game on the go, it won’t take much longer and the best part is, CD Projekt Red is insanely proud of this port. Speaking with VGC in an interview, the UI Coordinator at the studio had the following to say about the conversion:
Yeah, we’re really happy with how Witcher 3 is playing on Switch. It’s still at a quality that we’re proud of, but we also understand that there were hardware trade-offs that we had to do, in terms of performance versus graphics. Right now there’s a bit less foliage and some of the draw distances are lower… but it still looks amazing. I was very impressed. Unless you pointed a lot of changes out to me I probably wouldn’t have noticed them.
You’ll get the full Witcher 3 and all expansions. We’re not really cutting anything. The biggest changes that we made involve the user interface and how you interact is a bit different on the Switch compared to other versions. I think if this is your first experience with The Witcher 3, then you’re going to be really thrilled and enjoy it. Our company is pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished.
