While we play the franchise on our consoles, the Nintendo Switch users will be getting popular line of fantasy novels straight on the Nintendo switch in form of Witcher 3. Hissrich is about to tell us not put our hope on the movie to look exactly like the video game.



Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Hissrich said:
  • We’re not adapting the videogames, it’s a straight adaptation of the books. Which is great as the videogames are also an adaptation of the books. They went one direction, we actually get to go another. We’re kind of holding close to our chest what we’re doing in the first season. There’s a lot of obviously epic excitement that starts in the saga of the books. But the short stories provided a lot of world building and lay the foundation of this Continent and the politics of it and the understanding of the people of it and those really came into focus in the first season.

He furthermore, saying that much like real life itself, there's not necessarily going to be 'good' guys and 'bad' guys and there certainly won't be a central baddie:

  • It’s not a secretive aspect. There isn’t really a villain. One of the things we’re enjoying exploring is all the shades of grey in the books. The characters you’re rooting for in the beginning may not be the characters you’re rooting for in the end. And characters you hate and seem absolutely evil are motivated by something that’s really relatable and human and emotional. I found writing it and then watching it afterward that your allegiance switches a lot. You constantly try to put yourself in the shoes of characters and think what would you do [in a situation]. I think you’ll end up having a lot of empathy for characters you didn’t expect to.
