It doesn’t look pretty, but it’s there.
While the game leaked a good while before it was officially announced, it was still kind of a surprise when The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was shown to be coming to the Nintendo Switch, the full GOTY version of the game none-the-less. Today we get our first look at the game running in handheld mode, and well, it looks about like you expect it to.
The video is roughly 25 minutes long, and it’s really the first time we’ve seen the game running in portable mode. It’s not particularly pretty, and it takes a very noticeable hit in the visual department. Still, when you consider the hardware gap as well as the impressiveness of the game on a technological level, it’s still something to behold. It’s also the only truly viable way to play the game on the go to, after all, so there is that.
The Witcher 3 for Nintendo Switch will launch on October 15th. You can see the full video below.
