A new patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Nintendo Switch appears to be rolling out today, and with it comes some pretty major changes for the popular video game. In addition to some more broad graphical updates, including a variety of different options for folks to fiddle with, the Switch version of CD Projekt Red's biggest video game now apparently includes cross-save functionality.
Update 3.6, by all accounts, adds a "Cloud Saves" option to the main menu on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for Nintendo Switch. This allows folks to import saves from Steam or GOG.com into the mobile version of the video game. (It would appear that, at this time, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players are out of luck.)
Assuming everything works as intended, PC players that also have the Nintendo Switch version of the game, and connect all of the right accounts, will be able to bring their previously computer-bound Witcher 3 saves out on the road. There's some conflicting information out there as to whether these cloud saves go both ways, and seemingly no official word from CD Projekt Red or Saber Interactive as of yet, but it's hard to imagine why they wouldn't.
You can take a look at a before-and-after image using the new graphics options below:
