The Witcher 3 1920x1080

The Nintendo Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt got a rather nifty new feature today with its latest update, allowing players to bring over a save from the PC and continue their adventures on the go with the handheld system. That functionality won't be patched into the PlayStation 4 version, however.

Speaking to USgamer, a CD Projekt Red spokesperson said that the ability was designed for the Switch specifically along with port studio Saber Interactive. "There are no plans regarding similar functionality in the other versions of The Witcher 3."

To be fair, it makes a lot of sense. The portability of the Nintendo Switch is a huge draw for players, and the chance to take the masterful experience of The Witcher 3 on the go when you can't sit in front of your PC would probably tempt a few interested parties into a purchase if they own both machines. Of course, it would have been nice to see the PS4 receive the same sort of functionality, but then the game hasn't been updated on the system in quite some time.
