During E3 The Witcher 3 was announced to be coming to the Nintendo Switch, which confirmed the rumours ahead of the conference. We now get new info on how it will run on the Switch and apparently it won’t be at 1080p.
The Witcher 3 is Coming to Switch but Not at 1080p
The official The Witcher Twitter account posted that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will not be coming with 1080p resolution, but in fact run 780p in docked mode with dynamic resolution and in handheld it will run at 580p. The version that is coming to the switch is the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition. Many had already predicted this would be the case in order for the Switch to run The Witcher 3 smoothly.

If you want to see comparison between Switch and PS4 version of The Witcher 3, you should check out a video by Cycu1 who has matched up the consoles side by side.
While the comparison between the two is quite different I don’t think it will deter fans who love the game or those who wish to experience The Witcher 3 on a platform which you can take it on the go. Hopefully it handles the game smoothly and add some features that are unique to the Switch such as touch screen interactions.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition will be coming to Nintendo Switch on sometime this year 2019. Its currently listed on Amazon for $59.99 which comes with all DLC content.
