The Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will launch on October 15, developer CD Projekt RED announced during the Gamescom 2019 Opening Night Live show.

The open-world action RPG is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Here is an overview of the game, via CD Projekt RED:
Winner of over 800 awards, including 250 Game of the Year awards, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an RPG set in a fantastic open world full of adventure, danger, and mystery. As professional monster slayer Geralt of Rivia, gamers must set out to find the Child of Prophecy—a powerful entity that may send the world spiraling toward destruction. Along the way, the witcher will find himself facing not only mighty foes, but also difficult choices, the consequences of which will ripple throughout the game’s epic narrative.

Set to launch this year both digitally and in retail, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition for Nintendo Switch comes with the base game, as well as every piece of additional content ever released. This includes both story expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, as well as all 16 free DLCs. In total, the Complete Edition offers over 150 hours of gameplay, for the first time playable truly on the go. The game is being ported to Nintendo Switch by Saber Interactive in close cooperation with CD Projekt RED.

In addition to the game card housing the entirety of the Complete Edition’s content, the box will also come with a set of physical goodies: The Witcher Universe compendium, game map, and stickers.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the first game from the franchise to be released on a Nintendo console, introducing the series to brand new audience, as well as giving anyone who already played Geralt of Rivia’s final adventure a chance to experience it again on the go. The release of the game on Nintendo Switch is also bound to further cement Wild Hunt’s status as the best-selling title of the franchise, which currently makes for more than half of the series’ 40 million copies sold.

Probably the most ambitious portable game ever developed. Could be the worst version of the game but still looks fantastic.

Waiting for [Digital Foundry] The Witcher 3 Analysis 24H Marathon.

Looks pretty darn good. Being able to play it on the go is huge. Might double dip as I didnt play the expansions..hmmm...

Watched the DF video - to my surprise, I'm quite impressed. Wouldn't play this docked on a large TV (and why would I, that's what the Pro is for), but it looks like a decent portable experience. I would have expected something more along the lines of the ARK Switch port (not that bad though, ARK level takes special skills).

It's nuts that they did this - remember Skyrim was a 360/PS3 game . W3 was always a PS4/XONE game.

Still can't believe they've managed to get a game as large as the witcher 3 onto switch.

Can't CD projekt get someone to port witcher 2 to switch/ps4/xboxone. It always baffles me why they haven't already as it would be easy cash after witcher 3 success.

I gotta say, this looks mind blowing in portable mode. I’ve never played it so I’m really looking forward to this. Hopefully I’ll have some time this weekend to really play for a bit.
