The Witcher games on Switch and mobile 2024

The Witcher games are among the best in the RPG genre but it might surprise you to learn about some of the mobile offerings for the franchise.

It’s time to walk the path with The Witcher games on Nintendo Switch and mobile. Here, not only do we list The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (arguably one of the best RPGs of all time), but we have a story-driven smartphone title, a great CCG that’s hard to put down, and we also pay homage to a mobile game that once had such potential. Unfortunately, the latter just doesn’t have what it takes to survive the life of a Witcher.

Should you be after something akin to the experience of a Witcher title, our games like The Witcher 3 list can help you. We also have suggestions as to what the best Resident Evil games, Crash Bandicoot games, hard games, Soulslike games, Zelda games, Tomb Raider games, Sonic games, and Mario games are.

Anywho, it’s time to put down your swords, grab some mead, and discover some The Witcher games.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

Anyone who has played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is more than aware of Gwent, the card game that captures you and forces you to lose hours upon hours of your life to it. No matter what town, village, or city your in, there’s at least one person you can challenge to a game. It can be frustrating at times and might take a few matches to get used to, but it’s a lot of fun – even if getting the rarest cards can be a pain

Due to its immense popularity, we have Gwent: The Witcher Card Game on mobile, and it’s just as much fun as it is in Wild Hunt. Just like in the main game, you need to create decks through cards you collect across various factions. The Monsters and Northern Realms factions are especially fun to use, and the latter is the one we recommend for beginners. It’s by far one of the best mobile card games out there, so long as you don’t mind using some strategy.

Fortunately, to help you make the most out of your favorite faction, we have a Gwent decks guide that gives suggestions on which ones are good choices for your deck.

The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone

Yes, Hearts of Stones is actually an expansion, but it’s one of the best bits of DLC out there and is long enough that you can almost consider it to be a game in its own right, thus, it has its own entry on this list. Hearts of Stone features a fantastic story and introduces new weapons, quests, and characters while also building on the world of The Witcher 3 itself, with the events of this DLC spilling over into the main game in various ways.

Seriously, go and speak to some of your in-game pals to see what they have to say after the conclusion of this DLC. Just don’t expect Yennefer to be too sympathetic to your plight. Triss is the person to speak to if you want a bit of concern, but you likley knew that already.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer

At first, The Witcher: Monster Slayer hit the mobile gaming scene with such promise. In essence, it’s a fantasy version of Pokemon Go – how could this go wrong? Unfortunately, Spokko’s game just hasn’t reached the heights that the developers and CD Projekt Red hoped it would. Nonetheless, it’s a fun game, and it’s a shame that June 30, 2023, marked the end of it, not even two years after its release in July 2021.

In this game, you get to slay many recognizable beasts in the real world, such as grave hags, drowners, griffins, and more. Better still, you get to upgrade your gear, brew potions and oils, construct bombs, and embark on quests, though you never got to meet Geralt, for the legendary Witcher isn’t born yet. Mind you, this is all in a time before Geralt of Rivia. Perhaps the game would be more popular with that handsome Witcher in it. Still, one look at our The Witcher: Monster Slayer review tells you that it showed such promise at release.

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine

Okay, so while I maintain that Hearts of Stone is one of the best expansions out there, I’m ready to go one step further with The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine and claim that it’s the best piece of DLC in videogame history. I mean that. Not even FromSoftware and its incredible Old Hunters DLC for Bloodborne can compete with this. Like Hearts of Stone, Blood and Wine is so long that it could easily be a spin-off game, and thus I feel it’s fair to include it as a separate entry on this list.

Honestly, Blood and Wine boasts one of the best narratives to feature in an RPG, couple that with a gorgeous new location in Touissant, and you’re in for a special time. The fact that there are great new characters and an assortment of fresh gear and monsters is just the cherry on top of a fairly grotesque sundae.

It’s also a great idea to play through this DLC as you can get a nice calm moment with your loved one at the end, be it Triss, Yennefer, or Ciri – it depends on your romantic choices in the main game.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Thronebreaker takes place in the famous fantasy world of The Witcher, but while it maintains the RPG elements that fans love, it also adopts a narrative-driven exploration style. Should you be a fan of Gwent, you should give this game a go, for it serves as a standalone single-player component for the CCG. Here, you can expect intense battles, a long campaign, and face the consequences of your actions like never before in The Witcher universe.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Yes, of course, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is on this list. It’s easily one of the best Switch RPGs out there, what with its fantastic world, enigmatic characters, enthralling story, and a host of beasts that you need to put in their place. The fact that it also features two beautiful sorceresses and a handsome Witcher is just a bonus. In all seriousness, there’s so much to do in this game, and we’re even on hand to help you make the most of your time on The Continent.

Besides following the main storyline, which features some terrific writing, the combat is also an enjoyable experience, especially as you can effectively choose your playstyle. You can focus on a melee build alone or use signs and potions, too. There’s a surprising amount of freedom, and I suggest you learn how to brew some potions and oils, even if it’s just to lather your sword in a substance that your foes are weak to.

We have The Witcher 3 Triss, The Witcher 3 Ciri, The Witcher 3 Yennefer, and The Witcher 3 Geralt guides so that you can learn more about the main characters. Or, if you want some help with quests, our The Witcher 3 Family Matters article is great. We also have a guide to all of The Witcher 3 endings, just in case you need help understanding how Geralt’s story ends in your world.

Well, there you have it, The Witcher games on Nintendo Switch and mobile. The future is looking bright for this iconic franchise, and we hope to see more Witcher games hit these platforms someday. Should you be after something entirely different, our Budew evolution, Scyther evolution, Misdreavus evolution, Ralts evolution, and Bisharp evolution guides are a great read.
