The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition for Nintendo Switch is set to launch this year, both in digital and in retail stores. This edition of the award-winning RPG is the first game from the franchise to be released on a Nintendo console, which introduces the series to new audiences, as well as giving fans the adventures of Geralt on the go.

With over 800 awards, including 250 Game of the Year awards, this high-anticipated release of the title on Nintendo Switch is expected to boost the Wild Hunt’s current status as the best-selling title of the franchise. Indeed, Wild Hunt makes for more than half of the 40 million Witcher franchise copies sold. The title was released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2015, and it already has 4.8 million copies sold. It’s no surprise that Witcher 3 ranks as the sixth-best-selling PlayStation 4 video game.

The fantasy role-playing game is based on The Witcher series of fantasy novels by Andrzej Sapkowski. The narrative revolves around the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, known as a Witcher. The Wild Hunt is the sequel to Assassins of Kings, the second title in The Witcher series released in 2011.

The action RPG has a third-person perspective, where players will control the protagonist Geralt as he looks for his missing adopted daughter, who is on the run from an otherworldly force that is determined to capture her and use her powers. Gamers will face powerful adversaries and make challenging choices, and the consequences of which will have significant impact on the game’s storyline. The central story of Wild Hunt has several endings, which will be determined by the player's choices at certain points in the game.

What will the Complete Edition for Nintendo Switch include? According to a press statement, the kit will contain:

  • the base game along with every piece of downloadable content ever released. This means 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.
  • a set of physical goodies (The Witcher Universe compendium, game map, and stickers).

The key features of the game are:

  • A gigantic open world to explore. Visit the luxurious and corrupt city of Novigrad, face the frigid cold of the wind-swept Skellige islands, and challenge the dark forces roaming the forlorn, ravaged No Man’s Land. Sail through open seas, dive in search of long lost artifacts or gallop your mount into combat — the world of the Witcher beckons to be explored.
  • Unparalleled novel-like story spanning over 150 hours of gameplay. With over 100 hours of core and side-quest gameplay and over 50 hours of additional content, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt combines the intense, plot-driven pull of traditional RPGs with the freedom of choice only open world games can offer. Make choices and face their consequences to unlock endings tailored to how you play.

Aside from the Nintendo Swith debut, to celebrate E3, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game of The Year Edition (Complete Edition) is 70% off on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
