The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt packs a touch of nostalgia and more in its standard physical copy

Let’s be real here. As a child, one of the sweetest moments of getting a video game was cracking it open to find a crisp manual. Ah, did I strike a memory chord there? All those memories of the many, many manuals you immersed yourself in just came rushing in, didn’t they?

Modern day video games have left the ever so treasured manual behind. Usually when you open up a case nowadays, you meet with a single sheet displaying a redemption code, or an ad for an upcoming game. None of which that are as satisfying as a physical booklet unveiling the secrets of the game you’re about to play. The only thing that sets apart purchasing a physical copy and a virtual download is essentially the resale value.

But wait!

All hope is not lost. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt dev team packed in a whole lot of nostalgia in their physical copies. Inside you’ll find the map of the Northern Realms, the soundtrack for the game, some stickers, the Witcher Universe Compendium booklet and alas a game manual. All jam-packed into the standard physical copy.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, CD Projekt RED includes a nice personal touch dedicated to you, the gamer, and thanks you for your on-going support.

The dev team for The Witcher 3 gave us a quick trip down memory lane, and added a few more extras to satisfy our desires. I definitely commend them in this successful effort and hope to see similar trends in the near future for upcoming games. It’s always great to get that sweet nostalgic buzz every now and then.
