As you’ve most likely already been made aware of, there’s a rumor circulating the web with some credible weight to it, about a potential Switch port of the acclaimed Witcher III game coming this September.
This game has been renowned and praised for its graphical achievements and photorealistic environment rendering, and such has also been subject to being a benchmark for requiring demanding hardware to run the game. This has given rise to memes online about the game being quite difficult to run on max settings — a lot like the ‘but can it run Crysis?’ meme. This poses a few questions as to how the supposed port can in fact even run on the current Switch hardware, and if that is to be the case, then how much of a graphical downgrade are we looking to see? Take a look at this excellent breakdown of the game and whether a Switch port is in theory even possible at all:
The gist of the video is that the game is very demanding on hardware, even moreso than DOOM. Pulling off a Switch port that is not half-bad or struggling to maintain 30FPS would be a miraculous feat!
