E3 2019: Behold The Witcher 3's Glistening, Bathtime Geralt On Nintendo Switch
No, not the unicorn sex.
One of the biggest third-party announcements to come out of Nintendo's 2019 E3 Direct presentation was that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to Switch later this year. Right on cue with the reveal, CD Projekt Red lead PR manager Radek Grabowski tweeted out a still from one of the game's most infamous moments, as captured on Switch: Geralt taking a bath in the game's beginning. Behold him (and his feet, if you're into that), in all his glistening glory, as lovingly-rendered for Switch:
One detail regarding The Witcher 3 on Switch to emerge following the Direct concerns its resolution. When docked, it will run at a dynamic 720p, meaning it can change as needed during more demanding scenes. Played in handheld mode, the game runs at 540p.
First released in 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt brought the Polish fantasy series to massive new audiences, and put developer CD Projekt Red on the map in a big way. Its subsequent expansions, Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone, were also critically acclaimed, and will be included with the Switch port, set to release at an unspecified date later this year. CD Projekt Red's main project at this E3, however, is the hotly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, which a surprise Keanu Reeves revealed would be coming out in April 2020 during Microsoft's E3 event.
Nintendo packed a load of other announcements into its Direct presentation, such as Banjo-Kazooie and Dragon Quest characters coming to Smash, more details on Link's Awakening, and an initial tease of Breath of the Wild 2. Check out everything Nintendo revealed during E3 2019 here.
