Now Playing: The Witcher Netflix Series Release Date Announced - GS News Update

There has been a good amount of secrecy surrounding the Witcher TV show, but the trailer does give some tidbits of info away. A girl is searching for Geralt, as she needs his help. Additionally, there is a war happening that will surely complicate things. As you'd expect from The Witcher, there is magic, monsters, and Geralt taking a bath.

Netflix's The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Freya Allan as Ciri. We're still about two months away from the series landing on Netflix so why not play Witcher 3 again, on Switch? In his review of the Nintendo port, Jacob Dekker gave The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt an 9/10 (while the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 versions received a 10/10), and in the review, Dekker said, "Although the Nintendo Switch might not be the best platform to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it's still a fantastic experience that shouldn't be missed. If you are looking to replay The Witcher 3 and bask in its detail and beauty, the Switch port may not quite scratch that itch. However, what makes this game excellent isn't its graphics, but the powerful stories it tells, and those are as vivid as ever on Switch."

The Witcher comes to Netflix on December 20.
