CD Projekt Red's attempt at making a story-driven Gwent game wasn't as successful as some other titles but it eventually sšreat to more storefronts. The latest in line is Nintendo store and playing Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales on Switch should be a great fit.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales' success was crippled by odd marketing choices as the game was not as hyped up as some other CDPR titles before release.

It was originally only available on GOG which further limited the audience that could be exposed to it. Following the limited success, Thronebreaker made its way to Steam where it became evident that the players really liked this take on telling stories from The Witcher universe as the game scored 90 per cent positive reviews.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One got the title in December 2018 which expanded the game's audience to consoles and now it finally arrived to Nintendo Switch as well.

Considering this is mostly a storytelling experience with the gameplay consisting of playing Gwent, the game is perfect for those who would like to enjoy the best of card games and RPGs on the go.

Instead of Geralt, it is queen Meve who takes centre stage here and controls her armies from the two domains she controls - Lyria and Rivia. Witchers are usually not knights but those who know Geralt also know "of Rivia", a title that usually follows his introductions. We get a bit of the story of how it happened in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine but Thronebreaker offers more insight on when it happened while actively participating in the story.

Thronebreaker initially suffered some stability issues on PlayStation 4, as reported by the players, but CDPR quickly patched this up and the game enjoyed praises ever since.

It costs $19.99 on the and will take up 4.3GB of space.
