The Witcher 3 on Nintendo Switch received a new update earlier today, introducing new features and visuals improvements. These changes are showcased in a brand new video that has been shared online a couple of hours ago.
The new video, shared by Direct-Feed Games, showcases all of the new options and highlights which ones make the game look best. Some settings do make the game look better, while others don't impact visuals too much, making turning them on or off a matter of personal preference.
We compare the new visual options of The Witcher 3 for Nintendo Switch to see which looks best while running the game in undocked mode.
The Witcher 3 Nintendo Switch 3.6 update introduces not only the aforementioned new visuals improvements and options but also cross-platform save support, allowing players to import the save file from the Steam and GOG versions. This feature was already seen in another Nintendo Switch release, Divinity: Original Sin 2, so it's really good that other developers are implementing it in their games.
