In our review of the third game in The Witcher series, we couldnt praise the game enough: ‘It still has the classic hook of every RPGfighting monsters to gain experience and loot to level up and upgrade to make you even better at fighting monstersbut it has other pleasures too, with incredible scope for exploration and quests that are well-scripted, varied and full of personality’.

There’s a massive caveat with this port though, with the trailer showing that the Witcher 3’s visuals have suffered a significant downgrade in order to get the massive open-world game running on the Switch. We’ll also be very interested to see how it runs, as frame rates could be a massive issue.
