The Witcher 3 For Nintendo Switch Is Worryingly Expensive

During it’s E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo confirmed that CD Projekt Red’s 2015 hit The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.

An ambitious project to say the least, fans were thrilled that we’ll soon be able to play The Witcher 3 on the go.

Nintendo confirmed that the game will be released as a Complete Edition, meaning all the DLC released since the title first launched in 2015 will be included in the cost.

Sounds good right?

Well yes…until you see the price. The Witcher 3 for the Nintendo Switch is currently up for pre-order on Amazon for a shocking £54.99 GBP or $59.99 USD.

Just to put that into perspective, that’s more than the pre-order price of brand-new upcoming Pokemon games, Sword and Shield, which are currently available to pre-purchase at £49.99 GBP.

Over on the PlayStation Store and Steam, the complete version of The Witcher 3 and its DLC is selling for £34.99 GBP, but is one of the games that’s seen in the PS sales when they happen.

Naturally, people are pretty unhappy with the expensive price tag.

On Twitter, one user raged about the physical limitations of the Switch version, saying: “The Witcher 3 for Switch is $60. Full price for potato version.”

Another said: “In a shock to nobody Witcher 3 on the switch is £60. I just paid £7 for it on my PS4 instead.”

We’re yet to see just how well The Witcher 3 runs on the Nintendo Switch, but the general consensus is that it’s not going to be that impressive, and it might not be worth the price tag…
