Rumour: The Witcher 3 could be heading to the Switch

We hope you’ve brought several bags of salt, because you’re all going to have to take this rumour with a big pinch of it. There have been numerous rumours in the past that The Witcher 3 might be heading to the Switch and now new rumours have resurfaced once again.

According to a user on Resetera the following source was used to find this below bit of information when translated:

“[Breaking! Witcher 3 GOTY edition is coming to Switch in September.] According to a reliable source from distributor, Witcher 3 GOTY edition is coming to Switch in September. Chinese localization exclusive to Asia version.”

A visit to Taobao.com (a shopping site under Alibaba) and the user discovered that the game is already available for pre-order all over the show.

We just can’t see The Witcher 3 running on the Switch hardware without drastic measures of downscalling. That said, something like Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice runs better than expected. The other alternative would be that this is once again a title that can be streamed in Asian markets.

For now you should just hold on to those bags of salt and not get your hopes too high. Though a portable version of The Witcher 3… what dreams are made of.

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
