Both Witcher 3 and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales have received a big update on Switch which added a new cross-save feature.
Along the addition of the cross-save support with the PC version of the game, Update 1.0.2 will also fix some stability issues and minor bugs. Players will now be able to swap their saves from Steam and GOG to Nintendo Switch back and forth as many times they want. Unfortunately, PS4 and Xbox One will not have this cross-save feature yet. However, my guess is that CD Projekt Red will add cross-support on these consoles as well in the future, so we will update the article as soon as we have more information.
The Witcher 3 and Thronebreaker on Switch just received updates!
The Witcher update focuses on fixing Simplified Chinese localization and issues with PC saves, while the Thronebreaker update introduces save transfer between Switch and PC.
