Original developer CD Projekt Red was involved in bringing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to Switch. However, Saber Interactive handled a great deal of the technical work. In an interview with GamesBeat, chief executive officer Matthew Karch discussed the porting project in detail.

Karch mentioned that The Witcher 3 was initially “running at 10 frames per second, was taking 50% more memory than the Switch has, and the build size was 20GB larger than the biggest Switch cartridge.” Saber therefore turned off dynamic shadowed lights, removed screen-space ambient occlusion, and lowered the number of NPCs in the world by 30 percent.

That last change didn’t go over well, as Karch explained:

Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered has been given a new patch on Switch. This week’s update include some fixes as well as improvements.

Below are the full patch notes:

A new update for NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is out now on Switch. It features 22 new playable characters, 30 new vanity items, and 50 new court editor items. That’s on top of several returning courts from the first NBA Playgrounds.

Here’s a trailer for the new update:

Release date: October 15, 2019

As I look at my Switch’s home-screen, I find myself questioning the reality of whatever timeline it is that I’ve ended up in. Super Mario Odyssey’s icon is nestled neatly between that of Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and I can’t quite figure out if I’m dreaming or if I’m just overtired. Existential nightmare aside, I’ve been tasked with reviewing The Witcher 3 on Switch, and despite having had months to adjust to the game’s presence on Nintendo’s hybrid, I still can’t quite wrap my head around the idea of it being real. Not only is it actually real, but it’s the full package too – the base game in its entirety along with every scrap of DLC – all present and accounted for, and all on a single 32GB cartridge. I have two questions: How? Followed closely by: How good?

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may have seemed like an impossible idea for Switch at one point, but at E3 2019, the game was announced for Nintendo’s console. CD Projekt Red has been collaborating with Saber Interactive to make the port possible.

Recently, we were able to speak with senior producer Piotr Chrzanowski about the new Switch version. Chrzanowski discussed how it came to be, the challenges involved, how the team managed to fit the entire experience (and its DLC) on a single cartridge, and more.
