Witcher 3 for Nintendo Switch patch out, improves visuals


Update: Out now in all regions and patch notes added.

As promised The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt patch for the Nintendo Switch has begun rolling out in certain regions with more to follow. The patch is live in Korea and improves the game’s visual fidelity with some notable improvements to things such as visual clarity and bloom. There’s also the welcome addition of cross-save support with Steam and GoG. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on sale on the European eShop at the moment. Full patch notes have not yet been made available.

Among the features introduced by Update 3.6 is save file integration with Steam and GOG, allowing gamers to continue their PC adventure on the go, as well as HUD, menu and Gwent touch control support.
Additionally, the update expands the range of available text language options for selected regions. More graphical settings can also be found in the options following the update, making it possible to customize visual fidelity.
For the full list of changes, see below.
Update 3.6 — list of changes:
  • 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.
While transferring saves from PC, please keep in mind:
  • Mod-related bugs and blockers might get transferred from a modded PC game save file.
  • If the save file name has been changed on PC, the Switch’s Cloud Save feature won’t be able to recognize it.
Additional voice-over languages, added as free DLCs in selected regions, will follow later.

  1. Ultra Instinct Grandma Super Saiyan Green Evolution

    Nice. I really want to get into this game. I already bought it on switch day one but I have not even opened it yet. Cause you know; life, work, school, knitting, baking and other games.

    But Im afraid I might not understand anything since I haven’t played the other games and I have only watched the Netflix series and for what I understand is very different from the games but it was a great watch! (my only critique was how difficult was to understand what was a flashback and what was present other than that, great series) anyway Im glad it’s getting support from the devs!

    1. So you’re a Grandma that’s a fan of the Witcher, but you don’t have time to play it because you’re busy knitting and baking.

    2. You won’t. I played the game without playing the first two & I wasn’t lost on what was going on. They tend to explain why this or that is happening & why this or that character has it in for Geralt.

  2. Cross save with PC is a wounderful addition. I only have it for Switch, but considering that the game is a lot of times with great discount on Steam, I will consider buting it on that platform.

  3. I love this game, so if they ever have cross-save support with PS4, I will have no problem buying the game again on Switch. I won’t hold my breathe, though, since Sony IE is going stupid.
