The Witcher 3: Complete Edition was announced for Nintendo Switch last night, but just how good does it look on the portable device?

Answering a fan’s question on Twitter, developer CD Projekt RED, the minds behind the Keanu-fuelled Cyberpunk 2077 adaptation, the graphical capabilities of the portable port appear quite reasonable.

Docked into your TV, the Switch port of The Witcher 3: Complete Edition will aim for 720p. With dynamic resolution in place just in case, it’s not an unreasonable resolution for a title which runs at just 900p on base Xbox One.

For those interested in portable play, The Witcher 3 will run at 540p. With lower GPU clock speeds during portable play, this lower resolution isn’t too bad! With a 720p screen, 540p should look fantastic for the open-world title.

As the first title on Switch to utilize the 32GB cartridge, The Witcher 3 is proving the power of Nintendo’s handheld. It’s a dream port, much like Mortal Kombat 11, and it makes us excited for future third-party Switch titles in the future.
