The Witcher 3 Switch rumours gain momentum as Geralt actor Doug Cockle weighs in

Last week, leaked product listings surfaced online of a Witcher 3 port for Nintendo Switch (opens in new tab), suggesting that CD Projekt Red's lauded RPG of 2015 was about to be announced for the handheld console at E3 2019 (opens in new tab). CD Projekt Red has refrained from saying anything, though we do know it'll be attending the expo next week with more news of Cyberpunk 2077, (opens in new tab) but the man who plays Geralt of Rivia himself has decided to offer his own comments on the goss. 

In a tweet addressing the rumours (seen below), Cockle asks "Who else wants to see this...." followed by the wink face emoji that suggests he knows more than he's letting on. It's easy to take this as confirmation of The Witcher 3 (opens in new tab) Switch port leak, but it's unclear whether Cockle is even clued in to CD Projekt Red's plans for the RPG at this point, as he may just genuinely be adding his own support for the idea.

The best Switch exclusives (opens in new tab) to make sure you have in your library

It's difficult to imagine a game as large and resplendent as The Witcher 3 running on Nintendo's little handheld-home console hybrid, but the company did recently suggest that titles like Red Dead Redemption 2 (opens in new tab) were perfectly capable of operating on its hardware (opens in new tab), so perhaps been we've underestimating its horsepower this entire time.

If The Witcher 3 does end up being announced as an E3 2019 game (opens in new tab), hopefully we can expect to see it bundled with both of its major expansions alongside all the previously released DLC up till now, and we may even get some special Ninty-themed cosmetics in the same vein as the Skyrim Nintendo Switch (opens in new tab) edition. I, for one, would love to see Geralt of Rivia dressed up in Mario overalls. 

The E3 2019 schedule (opens in new tab) kicks off later this week, so stay tuned on GamesRadar+ (opens in new tab) for any potential Witcher 3 news and more. And don't worry. We'll be keeping a keen eye on Doug Cockle's Twitter account for any more potential teases...
