The Switch version was well worth getting as it was, and they improved it.

Are all console versions of Witcher 3 save file compatible with PC?

Wow, kudos. What a great support!

This will remain the most impressive Switch port unless Rockstar releases something on Switch.

I'm quite impressed with the support the Switch version of this game is getting.

I can't believe that despite how difficult it might have been to port a huge game like the Witcher 3 on essentially a handheld 1/15th the size of a PS4 with a GPU barely capable of running 7th gen games that Saber Interactive was still able to improve the graphical fidelity on the Switch, even when the original version was more than capable. Props to CD Projekt/Saber

They have definitely supported it well but this may be one of the final ports from Saber. They have just been purchased by Embracer Group (prev. THQ Nordic) today.
