The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Nintendo Switch Gets Several Screenshots Showing the Game in Action
While it has some notable downgrades, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt translates surprisingly well to the Switch with a number of new screenshots.
As one of the most acclaimed games of this generation, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt instantly drew attention thanks to its fully-realized fantasy world and compelling cast of characters. While the game was a notable technical showcase on consoles and PC, the upcoming Nintendo Switch version, though notably less detailed, still manages to highlight the game’s visual strengths.
In a series of new screenshots, CD Projekt Red has given a closer look at what to expect from the upcoming Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from a variety of sections from the game. Through the images below, we not only get a look at several of the game’s familiar faces like Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, but also get a look at some of the game’s world, all captured from the Switch version of the game.
Naturally, it’s obvious from the screenshots that the Switch version is not going to be near the level of visual fidelity that we’ve seen from the game on consoles and PC. However, it’s still an impressive feat for a game as big and detailed to be running on the Switch, and having it all while on the go is still sure to be worth the journey regardless. If anything, we can at least take solace in knowing that the infamous Geralt bathtub scene still appears to be intact on the Switch, with all the…”detail” it offers.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to Nintendo Switch sometime later this year, but you can also pick up the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC right now.
