Have you ever looked at Geralt or Ciri and gone "hey I want them to be in a robot"? Well, first I want to read that fan fiction and second I've got good news for you.

To celebrate The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt making its way to the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo is doing a bit of a crossover. Specifically, the crossover is in mech action game Daemon X Machina, a game where you pilot robots to blow up other robots. What does this have to do with The Witcher? Shut up, that's a dumb question, here's the trailer:

 

As you can tell, this has the most importat things you can ask for. Geralt and Ciri are running around shooting at robots with magic spells and cutting them apart with swords. Sometimes they even jump into a robot of their own, so they can do some more fighting. It's amazing and bizarre and totally perfect in a way. I'm not sure if the book's author would be particularly amused, considering his open hate of the video games, but he needs to see this too and understand how perfect it is.

This isn't Geralt's first time wandering into a different game by mistake. He was a guest character in Soulcalibur VI, joining Nier: Automata's 2B and soon Samurai Shodown's Haohmaru as the entry's guest stars. He also made a guest appearance in Monster Hunter World, where you could unlock a Geralt costume during a special event. This appears to be the first time Ciri is making a guest appearance somewhere else.

 
 

Daemon X Machina is currently available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

At any point did you expect this crossover? Will you lead the battle against giant mech suits with some old guy and his swords? Is this the most amazing thing ever? Let us know in the comments below!
