    EDIT: This is now confirmed to be true. The game runs with a dynamic resolution maxing at 720p in docked and 540p in handheld. They didn't specify the framerate but it's safe to assume it runs at 30fps. The game will probably contain the complete game on the cart but we can't be 100% sure yet. On Twitter they say the game contains the expansions and DLC but don't specify whether it's all included on the cart. I'm inclined to believe it is because the box does not say SD card required.

    Playing Witcher 3 on a handheld is nice idea.
    But I don't think it will run very well...

    So you do think it will run well.

    We have doom on the switch. Do you know how graphically heavy that game is on the PC and other systems? They made it work for the switch. This will be just fine

    Very unlikely that potato switch can handle witcher 3:P when 10 years old ports looks and works like crap in handheld.

    Because most companies don't optimize well.

    And now it's official. Probably download only, or a cartridge with a required digital download.

    And they have a lot of time to optimize before release.

    No matter how much they optimise, there's only so much they can do with the Switch's limited hardware. It will probably run at a dynamic resolution maxing out at 720p 30fps. I'll pick it up when I get around to getting a decent PC.

    720 30fps is still good for a switch

    Now I want to see a hands on video from an E3 Both! I hope they let the audiance test the game.
    Edit: Wouldn´t be surprised if we get 20 FPS like in Ocarina of Time back in 1998.

    I'm sure plenty of people will buy it, but this port is not for me.
