The Witcher 3 Switch update adds cross-save support, improves performance
CD Projekt Red has released a new update for the Nintendo Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that introduces a couple of new features.
The big new addition is the ability to transfer saves from the Steam and GOG versions of the game on PC to Nintendo Switch.

- Added touch control support.
- Added save file integration with GOG, Steam and versions of the game for Switch from different regions.

- Added more graphical options.
- Added multiple performance optimizations.
- Fixed various visual and functional bugs.
- Various gameplay and crash fixes.
