The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, and it's a minor miracle that it actually runs on the handheld console. In our guide compiling everything we know about the Witcher 3 Switch port so far, we'll be going over details including the eventual Witcher 3 Switch release date, all the trailer footage we've seen, pricing details, and more.
Witcher 3 Switch Release Date
The Witcher 3 Switch port release date is at an unknown point in 2019. Nintendo announced the date in their own Nintendo E3 2019 Direct, which took place on June 11, 2019.
Witcher 3 Switch Trailer
We saw some brief gameplay of Witcher 3 on Switch in the Nintendo Direct on June 11. It turns out you'll actually get all the DLC bundled in with the game when you purchase it, in the 'Complete Edition.' This means that you're going to be able to access the Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine DLC expansions for the game on Switch, the latter of which is a game in itself, if we're honest.
In addition to this, the Witcher Twitter account revealed that all available content will be packaged into a single Nintendo Switch cartridge. Since the entire package is about 32GB, this makes The Witcher 3 on Switch the first game in the west to use the bigger game cartridge size for a retail release.
Witcher 3 Switch Graphics
If you're wondering about the graphical aspect of The Witcher 3 on the Nintendo Switch, then wonder no more. CD Projekt revealed in the tweet below that the game will run at 540p in handheld mode, when you're playing the game on the go. This will scale up to 720p when you're playing the game in docked mode.

Witcher 3 Switch Cross-Save
With the Witcher 3 Switch port, cross-save unfortunately isn't an option. The Witcher Twitter account revealed as much in the post below, so if you're playing The Witcher 3 on Switch, you'll be starting Geralt's journey over from the beginning.

Witcher 3 Switch Price
Right now, we don't have a concrete price for the Witcher 3 on Switch. However considering that you're getting all the DLC bundled in to the game in one purchase, all signs point towards this being a full price, $60 retail purchase.
