The Witcher 3 Actor Sparks Nintendo Switch Port Rumors

E3 2019 is about to begin, so of course that means the rumor mill is in full swing. And out there on Twitter fanning the flames is Doug Cockle, the voice actor behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s Geralt of Rivia. The Witcher 3 was already rumored to be coming to Nintendo Switch, and now Cockle has put greater weight behind those rumors with a suggestive tweet.

Sharing a fan’s wish for The Witcher 3 to be announced for Switch at Nintendo’s E3 Direct presentation, Cockle teased, “Who else wants to see this,” adding a suggestive smiley at the end of his message.

Previously, The Witcher 3 was listed for Nintendo Switch by French wholesaler WTT, which also reportedly leaked the Assassin’s Creed 3 port shortly before that was announced. Additionally, a job listing from The Witcher publisher CD Projekt Red referenced Nintendo Switch as part of GOG Galaxy’s ecosystem. GOG Galaxy is a storefront and gaming client–akin to Steam–developed by retailer GOG, which is owned by CD Projekt Red. GameSpot has contacted the publisher for comment.

The Witcher 3 was critically acclaimed when it launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015. “This is one of the best role-playing games ever crafted, a titan among giants and the standard-setter for all such games going forward,” wrote critic Kevin van Ord in our 10/10 The Witcher 3 review. “Where The Witcher 2 sputtered to a halt, The Witcher 3 is always in a crescendo, crafting battle scenarios that constantly one-up the last, until you reach the explosive finale and recover in the glow of the game’s quiet denouement. But while the grand clashes are captivating, it is the moments between conflicts, when you drink with the local clans and bask in a trobairitz’s song, that are truly inspiring.”
