The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt may well be on its way to Switch this year, but the series is also making its first appearance in TV form thanks to an upcoming show on Netflix. The first images from said show have been released today, giving us a sneaky insight into how it'll look.

In the images, we can see Henry Cavill (Man Of Steel, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as the titular Witcher, Anya Cholatra as Yennefer, and Freya Allan as Ciri. We can also see the first poster for the series, sporting a "The worst monsters are the ones we create" slogan.

The first season of the show is set to launch towards the end of this year, with eight one-hour episodes in total.

As for the Switch game, that also has a vague "2019" release date. Still, it looks like there'll be plenty of The Witcher action for us to get stuck into this year.
