Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales has shadow-dropped onto the Switch

Are you watching The Witcher Netflix series whilst playing The Witcher 3 on Switch and listening to Toss a Coin to Your Witcher on Spotify and thinking, “Man, I wish I could get more Witcher in my life”? Well, CD Projekt has you covered.

Earlier today, out of absolutely nowhere, CD Projekt dropped Witcher spin-off game Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales onto the Switch eShop in pretty much every region. Thronebreaker — which originally launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in late 2018 — is a single-player RPG game focused on the card game side activity from The Witcher 3, Gwent.

Thronebreaker is a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics.
Crafted by the developers responsible for some of the most iconic moments in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran and queen of two Northern Realms — Lyria and Rivia. Facing an imminent Nilfgaardian invasion, Meve is forced to once again enter the warpath and set out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales eShop description

The game had previously popped up for classification in a number of regions last year, but it was never officially announced for Switch — until today, that is, when it turned up on the eShop without so much as a hurrah.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will set you back $29.95 AUD when buying from the Aussie eShop, which is about the same as it is on Xbox One and PS4. You can click here to purchase it in your browser.
