The Nintendo Switch has just received another game in The Witcher series, as Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is now available to purchase on the eShop.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a standalone variation of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. The title combines aspects of point and click adventure games, a visual novel, and competitive card games into one package. The player does not control Geralt in Thronebreaker, instead they take on the role of Queen Meve and her army as she battles the Nilfgaardian Empire.

It seems that CD Projekt Red has more plans in store for the Nintendo Switch than just The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales has been shadow dropped on the Nintendo eShop, following numerous rumors that it was coming to the system. The Nintendo UK YouTube account has released a launch trailer for the game.
It’s strange that Nintendo didn’t officially announce this game during the last Direct. It’s also strange that this game didn’t make its way to the Switch before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as Thronebreaker would be far easier to port to the system than one of the best-looking games on the PlayStation 4/Xbox One.
It seems that CD Projekt Red was pleased with the response to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and the company could be seeing the Switch as a viable system. The main question now is whether Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will also be making its way to the system in the future. Geralt has already made his way into Daemon X Machina and CD Projekt Red has had no problem putting the famous witcher into Soulcalibur VI and Monster Hunter World. If The Witcher franchise is becoming more and more represented on the Switch, then could Geralt be a potential pick for the next Fighters Pass in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? If Byleth can make it in, then surely Geralt also has a chance?
