The Witcher 3 is making its way to Nintendo Switch, and the developer has assured that the port’s visuals are still impressive on the console.
CD Projekt Red’s UI coordinator Alvin Liu has spoken to Video Games Chronicle about the game’s quality:
“We’re really happy with how Witcher 3 is playing on Switch. It’s still at a quality that we’re proud of, but we also understand that there were hardware trade-offs that we had to do, in terms of performance versus graphics. Right now there’s a bit less foliage and some of the draw distances are lower… but it still looks amazing. I was very impressed. Unless you pointed a lot of changes out to me I probably wouldn’t have noticed them.”
Liu also confirmed that none of the game’s content would be cut for the Switch port, saying:
“You’ll get the full Witcher 3 and all expansions. We’re not really cutting anything. The biggest changes that we made involve the user interface and how you interact is a bit different on the Switch compared to other versions. I think if this is your first experience with The Witcher 3, then you’re going to be really thrilled and enjoy it. Our company is pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished.”
