Today The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Complete Edition has launched on the Nintendo Switch and is now available to priced at $60. If you are considering purchasing The Witcher 3 for your Nintendo Switch console, but have been concerned about possible performance issues, you are sure to enjoy the detailed Switch Witcher 3 performance analysis provided by the team over at Digital Foundry.
“Somehow squeezing The Witcher 3 into a 32GB footprint is a masterful exercise in compression, but it’s easy to see where many of the cuts were made. It begins with the compressed video files, which drop from 1080p to 720p. Again, it’s no problem for the portable experience, but the lack of clarity – and compression artefacts – don’t really hold up on a living room screen. In-game image quality takes some adjusting to as well: 720p is the highest we’ve seen the game render at while docked, dropping to 960×540 in our tests at lowest, seen while panning past the city in Toussaint.”
