The Witcher 3 was first released in 2015 and is still making it to the top of a lot of game talk. With all the re-release games we are seeing on the Nintendo Switch, it is a no brainer that The Witcher 3 gets added to that pile as well.
If you want to check out our review of The Witcher 3 game then get it here where as in this article I will talk more about how this game relates to the Switch release and if it is worth getting.
Everyone know that The Witcher 3 is a resource hungry game and the biggest concern is how will a smaller system handle less powerful hardware. The great news is that the Switch systems runs the game really well, the graphics has been downscaled to 720p in docked mode and 540p in handheld mode. You can see some comparison images below between other systems and the switch.
There’s still some beautiful graphics left to look at like sun rays shining through wind blown trees and shadows flowing across the ground. The menus scale dynamically which is fantastic and it means you will not have to squint our eyes to read text or detail in menus in the handheld mode. If you have never played The Witcher 3 before then this will be an amazing journey and experience for you. If you do own it on any other platform then be ready to let go of some graphical detail but be excited for having The Witcher 3 ready to play where ever you go.
