As stated above, the 3.6 update for The Witcher 3 on Switch hasn’t gone live in every region as of writing. Unfortunately, this means that the full list of patch notes is yet to be revealed, too.

If you’ve been put off by jumping into The Witcher 3 on Switch, this new update might change your mind. With it, a number of new graphics options have been added to the game. This should improve your experience if you found it too blurry before, at least. Before you get your hopes up too much, however, be warned that the visual updates aren’t massive. Don’t go in expecting it to look way better than before. These are small, noticeable improvements.

Update 3.6 — list of changes:
  • Added touch control support.
  • Added save file integration with GOG, Steam and versions of the game for Switch from different regions.
  • Added more text languages (in selected regions).
  • Added more graphical options.
  • Added multiple performance optimizations.
  • Fixed various visual and functional bugs.
  • Various gameplay and crash fixes.
While transferring saves from PC, please keep in mind:
  • Mod-related bugs and blockers might get transferred from a modded PC game save file.
  • If the save file name has been changed on PC, the Switch’s Cloud Save feature won’t be able to recognize it.
Additional voice-over languages, added as free DLCs in selected regions, will follow later.
  • Water Quality

It appears as though you are able to freely edit how The Witcher 3 on Switch looks with these options. For example, you can turn the Sharpening option off or slide it to the maximum. It should look better than before, no matter which options you utilize.

Alongside the new graphics options is cross-save between the Switch version of the game and PC. You should now be able to share your save file across the Switch, Steam, and GOG versions of the game.
