Geralt of Rivia is about to get a bit more portable. No, we aren't talking about Roach getting an upgrade, but rather that The Witcher is finally on its way to a Nintendo console! During the company’s E3 2019 showcase, fans received the news that the complete edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to Nintendo Switch. Such a release has been speculated about for some time, but on top of this confirmation, we also received a look at the game in action on the console, which you can see for yourself in the trailer above.

It’s no secret that the Switch doesn’t quite have as much horsepower as the other consoles, but this port is certainly looking respectable nonetheless. Plus, playing such an epic and memorable game in handheld mode certainly has its appeal as well. All things considered, this re-release should prove to be a very popular purchase given the critically-acclaimed nature of the title.

This complete edition will include all the content that was released throughout the game’s lifecycle. This includes two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, as well as smaller DLC additions such as new contracts, armor sets, and appearances. For those who haven’t played this monumental game by now, we can’t recommend it enough and this upcoming Switch release could be just the right time to finally give it a try if you showed up late to the party.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition will release sometime this year, although no specific date is listed at this time. Be sure to follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this release as well as The Witcher franchise in general, including the upcoming Netflix series.
