CD Projekt Red on The Witcher 3 Switch port changes

When rumours of [The Witcher 3 coming to the Nintendo Switch started making the rounds, many, myself included thought it was nigh impossible that it would turn out true. CD Projekt surprised all of us by confirming the news last week during E3.

The announcement came via a short trailer, which left many wondering exactly how such a massive game would make the transition to the Nintendo Switch hardware and what concessions would have to be made to ensure a framerate beyond single digits.

Speaking to VGC, UI coordinator Alvin Liu stated that despite the hardware trade-offs, the studio is "really happy with how Witcher 3 is playing on Switch."

When it came to bringing [The Witcher 3 to the Switch, CD Projekt Red passed development duties to Saber Interactive as the two studios worked together "in close cooperation".

"With all the excitement and popularity, we wanted to let you know that the pre-beta sneak peek of Nuclear Winter will remain on and continue to receive updates," said Bethesda on its official blog.

Destroy All Humans remake set to invade next year

If you're feeling the need to subjugate the human race, THQ Nordic has some great news for you – a remake of Destroy All Humans is on the way.

Announced just before E3 with a catchy trailer set to Rammstein's 'Ich Will,' the cult classic remake will be coming to consoles and PC next year.

Report: New Nintendo Switch models in production

Rumours of a new updated Nintendo Switch have been making the rounds for several months now, and it looks like we'll see them this year.

According to a new report via The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo has moved manufacturing from China to Southeast Asia in an effort to avoid proposed United States trade tariffs on tech made in China. If the tariffs do go through,m companies could see themselves forking out a whopping 25 percent tax on any electronics made in China.

var sas = sas || {}; sas.cmd = sas.cmd || []; sas.cmd.push( function () { sas.call( { siteId: 234595, pageId: 932921, formatId: 67398, tagId: "sas_67398" }, { networkId: 3073, domain: "//sgp-secure.smartadserver.com" /*, onNoad: function() {} */ } ); } );

Instead of absorbing these additional costs or passing them on to consumers (making consoles significantly more expensive), a relocation of manufacturing would side-step these issues.

The report further states that along with moving current Switch manufacturing, Nintendo has already commenced production on two new Switch models. One is rumoured to be similar to the current console but is said to feature improved components, while the second model will see a more significant redesign and a lower entry-level price.

Making the second FFVII game will be "more efficient"

Final Fantasy VII Remake may have taken five years from its announcement to release, but Square Enix is saying that won't be the case for subsequent games in the series.

In a series of tweets, producer Yoshinori Kitase noted that "due to the work already done on the first game we anticipate development of the second game to be more efficient."

var sas = sas || {}; sas.cmd = sas.cmd || []; sas.cmd.push( function () { sas.call( { siteId: 234595, pageId: 932921, formatId: 67398, tagId: "sas_67398" }, { networkId: 3073, domain: "//sgp-secure.smartadserver.com" /*, onNoad: function() {} */ } ); } );
