The Witcher 3 is Coming to the Nintendo Switch

Switcher 3 is real, it's actually real.

The Witcher 3 is coming to the Nintendo Switch. CD Projekt Red's expansive RPG will be crammed into Nintendo's little console that could, and if it works it could potentially be glorious.

Rumors for The Witcher 3 on Switch (Switcher 3 if you will) have been intensifying in the weeks leading up to E3. The elephant in the room of course was whether or not it was even possible to get a game as big as The Witcher 3 running on the Switch.

The Witcher 3 on Switch is the complete version of the game and includes all the DLC and expansions for the game.

Our colleagues at Digital Foundry tried to test this out, and while it's technically doable, it's not easy. So good luck to the developers tasked with the challenge of getting The Witcher 3 on the Nintendo Switch.

The Witcher 3 is one of the best RPGs of this generation, and possible one of the best RPGs of all time. To be able to play it anywhere will be a treat, granted it runs smooth.
