The Witcher 3 (Switcher) just got an update on Switch


Switch it on

The Witcher 3 is one of the few games that keeps on giving, beckoning people back to it like a siren's call. Whether it's the clever DLC expansions or plain old graphical mods or updates; it's very easy to get sucked back into Wild Hunt.

The Switch version was perhaps the best effort by CD Projekt Red to keep people talking about it, which thankfully fit on one giant game card. But it seems like the publisher isn't quite done with it just yet, as they just unleashed a new update (3.7) for Switch owners this week.

In short, it fixes "numerous bugs" and adds to the overall stability of the game. That's a familiar patch pass for any Nintendo fan, as Nintendo itself loves to deliver those vague updates on a regular basis. But there's also a few extras tucked away in there, like an updated Simplified Chinese localization and a bug fix for "multiple file transfers to/from Steam."

CD Projekt Red says that Switch users could be hit with a nasty issue where their progress was blocked depending on how they transferred their save from PC to Switch; so those problems should be fixed going forward. Thronebreaker was also updated to 1.0.2: you can find those notes below.

Excuse me while I imagine the countryside of Blood and Wine for the 10th time this month. I'm not quite relenting to the Witcher bug just yet, but I'll succumb soon enough once the new generation madness has quieted down and Cyberpunk 2077 is finished.
