You can now buy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts of Stone, & Blood and Wine separately for the Nintendo Switch

Witcher 3, Wild Hunt, Blood and Wine, Hearts of Stone

CD Projekt Red (CDPR) announced that Nintendo Switch owners can now buy The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt separately from its expansions.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CDPR’s critically-acclaimed game from 2015, first arrived on the Nintendo Switch in October 2019. Fans only had one option in buying the game before. To play The Witcher 3 on their Nintendo Switch consoles, they had to buy the “Complete Edition.” The Complete Edition came with the base game and the two expansions in one $60 bundle.

Starting today, players can buy The Witcher 3 base game on the Nintendo Eshop for $40. Hearts of Stone, the first expansion, is available for $10. Finally, The Blood and Wine expansion is available for $20. The option to buy the $60 Complete Edition bundle will still be available.


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is often considered by many gamers to be one of the best games ever made. 5 years after its release, it still holds up to current standards and remains to be a best-seller among different platforms. It is then interesting that CDPR thought that it’s necessary to release a next-gen console version of the game.

The PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and a new PC version will be coming later this year. The updated version will “take advantage of the most powerful gaming hardware.” It also “will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times.”

If you already have a copy of the game on current-gen consoles, then you won’t have to feel like you’re missing out. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen version will be available for free for current owners of the game. They have a similar stance with their highly-controversial Cyberpunk 2077. “Gamers should never be forced to purchase the same game twice or pay for upgrades,” says CDPR when they announced that PS4 and Xbox One X owners of Cyberpunk 2077 will also receive a free PS5 or Xbox Series X version of the game.
