A few weeks ago, Cory Barlog, director of God of War, received a Nintendo Switch Lite as a birthday gift. The creative has enjoyed some games on the portable console and one of them is the port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that arrived last week. If you want to know what he thinks about it, you should know that he is delighted with the work of Saber Interactive.
In a post on Twitter, Barlog commented that he has been playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Nintendo Switch and says he has loved it. That said, he joked in saying that he believes they made a mistake by simply calling it The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition.
I absolutely LOVE being able to play Witcher III on my Switch Lite. Having said that, it’s such a missed opportunity that they did not call it: The sWitcher III: It sWild Hunt, eh? Or just – sWitcher III. Game Industry, I’m available for all your naming and marketing needs.
Later, a player asked his sincere opinion about the port of Saber Interactive from the acclaimed RPG of CD Projekt RED. It was there that the creative who also worked on Tomb Raider (2013) and God of War III praised the portable version of Geralt de Rivia’s adventures.
It is a portable version of a game that is like 3x the size of ALL the games I have ever made combined! It is some kind of dark sorcery that did to get it run on the Switch so I am more than cool with the graphical tradeoffs required to realize this glorious feat of dev magic.
The Witcher Wild Hunt is available in physical and digital format on Nintendo Switch. This is an impressive and ambitious port that took one of the biggest RPGs of the entire decade to the Nintendo Hybrid. This means that it is the first version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that runs natively on a console that you can take anywhere and where you can play without needing a TV.
In case you’ve never heard of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you should know that it is one of the most beloved RPGs of recent years and with good reason. The CD Projekt RED project is an extensive adventure with a story that catches you from beginning to end. In it you will control Geralt de Rivia, a Witcher who works by hunting monsters and solving several problems.
In this adventure he finds a new mission that turns out to be very personal: find Ciri, a very special girl and with whom he has a very close relationship. On his way to find it he is involved in various political conflicts and stories that can reach your heart. It should be mentioned that it also has a lot of well-designed side missions.
Accompanied by the main story, this will catch you for hundreds of hours. In case that is not enough, you should know that this version combines its 2 expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine, which have the quality of a complete game. The love that CD Projekt RED has for its community is not only reflected in its magnificent game, but in its incredible physical edition.
Do you remember how the games used to include manuals that you spent browsing for a long time? Well, the physical version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Nintendo Switch wants to relive a little of this feeling with several details.
First, the entire game and its expansions come in the cartridge, so you should forget about additional downloads to enjoy it. Also, it brings a map, a couple of stickers and a book that will give you several details about the universe of The Witcher.
I remind you that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition arrived on Nintendo Switch on October 15, but it has been available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for quite a few years.
