During E3 week, it was announced that the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. On top of that, the game will feature both of its expansions, Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine at no additional cost.

The game is currently available to be pre-ordered for $60, but at least as of this writing, there’s no specific release date attached to The Witcher 3’s debut on the Switch.

While there’s no specific date for The Witcher 3 on the Switch, there are a few bonuses included if you pre-order the game, which include a map, a compendium, and stickers of Geralt’s iconic wolf pendant.

You can check out the reveal trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the Nintendo Switch below.

The physical edition of The Witcher 3 on the Switch will reportedly be a single, 32 GB cartridge, and no additional downloads will be required. In order to get the game to run smoothly on Nintendo’s console, it’ll run at 540p while in handheld mode, and it’ll run up to 720p with dynamic resolution enabled on players’ home televisions.

Many consider The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to be the best open world game of the current generation, as players will spend roughly 100 hours playing through the game’s main story. On top of that, the game’s two previously mentioned expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, will take players a combined 30 or so hours to play through.

Even though the game is has been available on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One for over four years now, it’s certainly not outdated. In fact, it’s probably one of the most replayable games out there, as every players’ choices in the game can drastically have an impact on how the game’s main story plays out.

Nintendo being able to get The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt onto their platform is likely great news for the future of their consoles, as it doesn’t have nearly as many hot AAA titles as their competitors PlayStation and Xbox do.

On top of announcing The Witcher 3’s arrival on the Nintendo Switch, the longtime gaming juggernaut also showed the very first trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. So, it’s clearly been a fantastic week for the company, as they were able to shine bright during this year’s E3 event.

It’s likely that a release date for the Switch version of The Witcher 3 will be announced at some point in the coming weeks.
