What’s the problem, son? Think having a portable Witcher 3 would be keen, but you’re not so willing to take the graphical downgrades required to make it happen?
As of today, there’s a solution. Cross-save compatibility has been patched into the Nintendo Switch version of Witcher 3, so you can get all the high-class PC graphics your eyeballs can take in at home, and pick up where you left off on the bus or subway, where you’re not as likely to notice the visual changes.
But there’s better news: those changes aren’t quite as severe anymore. The update also improved the graphics of the Switch version and increased the variety of filters so you can get closer to the Witcher 3 of rival consoles (it’s still not quite there).
It’s all part of Update 3.6, which contains the following:
- Added touch control support.
- Added save file integration with GOG, Steam and versions of the game for Switch from different regions.
- Added more text languages (in selected regions).
- Added more graphical options.
- Added multiple performance optimizations.
- Fixed various visual and functional bugs.Various gameplay and crash fixes.
Saves can now be transferred from Steam or GOG to Switch and vice-versa. Sadly, you can’t transfer the save from a Switch to a Playstation 4 or XBox One. Yet.
