Love the Witcher series, but fancy a more old-school RPG experience? Well, you might just be in luck: Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales was released today on Switch without any prior announcement. Thronebreaker is an isometric RPG with card-based battle mechanics that came out in 2018 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and is a spin-off of the Witcher series. The game went on to win several awards and receive decent reviews, and now it’s available to play on the go via the Nintendo Switch! The game released on Nintendo’s E-Shop this morning and was announced by official Twitter accounts soon after.

Players take control of Queen Meve as she battles through a host of varied environments in a grand story set in The Witcher universe. Buying Thronebreaker will also give you access to a few digital extras, such as a Witcher graphic novel and a Gwent art book. So, if you’re a Witcher fan in need of more, give Thronebreaker a try!

Hi, I'm Dan! I was born in the late 90s, so naturally I grew up with all the fantastic games that came out during the PS1 and PS2 era. Now I love all games old and new, but I'll always have a soft spot for that part of gaming history!
