This coming September will be quite a busy month for the Nintendo Switch, as a Zelda remake, an enhanced edition of Dragon Quest XI S, and Daemon X Machina are all set to come to the console this fall.

In addition to the three aforementioned September releases for the Switch, it’s looking like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will also be released in roughly two months, as a recent leak is suggesting that the CD Projekt Red game will come to Nintendo’s console on September 24.

According to a listing by a Czech retailer, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 24, and, as of this writing, the listing hasn’t been pulled nor has the date changed. So, it does seem like the retailer is listing the correct date, because if they have the wrong one, the listing would’ve been pulled.

It was recently announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to Nintendo’s console, and the game will include both of its expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, at no additional cost to Switch users.

The game, which was released in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, is widely considered to be the best open world game of the current generation. It’s also one of the best looking games of the current gen, and judging from the screenshots that have been released, it’ll look just as good on the Nintendo Switch.

In terms of length, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will take around 70 hours to complete, and that’s not including the game’s two expansions. According to developer CD Projekt Red, there are roughly 200 hours of content in the main game.

On top of the several hours of content, the game does have multiple endings that are based on the decisions players make throughout the single-player story. So, it’s one of the most replayable games on the market.

With CD Projekt Red focusing on putting the finishing touches on Cyberpunk 2077, it doesn’t look a sequel to The Witcher 3 is coming anytime soon. But, due to the fact that the most recent installment in the series was extremely successful, the studio will almost certainly look to develop The Witcher 4 at some point in the coming years. But for now, they’re completely dedicated to their new IP.

Again, the September 24 release date for The Witcher 3 on the Nintendo Switch hasn’t been confirmed, but if it is set to be released in two months, then the date will probably be confirmed in the near-future.
