Launching on Nintendo Switch today is Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, a spin-off from the ever-so-relevant The Witcher series that first launched on other platforms in 2018.
The game is a single-player RPG unsurprisingly set in the world of the famous franchise which, between this and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is quickly settling into life on Nintendo's platform. It combines narrative-driven exploration with puzzles and card battle mechanics, and while past versions didn't sell quite as well as CD Projekt Red hoped, it was received generally favourably.
Here's a list of key features:
- Experience an all-new 30-hour Witcher world tale with 20 possible world end-states.
- Embark on a grand adventure full of thought-provoking quests.
- Influence the state of the world around you by making difficult choices and face their consequences.
- Meet a cast of rich, multidimensional characters — some of them will join you on your quest, others you’ll have to face on the battlefield.
The game is set to go live on the eShop today for $19.99 if you're interested. Our friends over at Push Square reviewed the game for PS4, saying that it is "an easy recommendation for Witcher enthusiasts and fans of strategic RPGs -- a surprisingly robust and rich tale that shouldn't be overlooked".
Thinking of giving this one a go? Let us know if you'll be grabbing it from the eShop with a comment.
