Download games to Nintendo Switch is free, even the latest Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Dragon Quest XI can be downloaded to your Switch to play. Here I will tell you how to get free Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Dragon Quest XI on Switch and where to download these 2 Switch games.
Hack Nintendo Switch to play Downloaded Games
Nintendo Switch is hackable, more exactly, most of Switch units can be hacked, the non-hacked Nintendo Switch are listed here. If you are enough luckily to have a unpatched Nintendo Switch, you can take the following guide to play free games downloaded from online, including the latest release Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Dragon Quest 11 and the upcoming titles Mario Luigi Masion 3 and Pokemon Sword&Shield.
1. Buy yourself the best Switch modchip-SX Pro dongle or the cheapest one-RCM Loader one.
Team Xecuter SX Pro toolkit support users to boot SX OS CFW, the RCM Loader supports uers to boot SX OS/Atmosphere and all other custom firmwares. If you choose to buy the RCM Loader one, you still have to buy the SX OS License to get SX OS CFW on Switch.
Why I recommend the SX OS to your Switch mostly? It’s the best custom firmware for Nintendo Switch consoles, users can play .XCI games(Switch backups/ROMs come in the form of .XCI files) directly on this CFW. While on other Switch custom firmwares, you need to convert .XCI to .NSP(format of Switch eshop games) games to play.
2. Prepare the SX OS CFW to your Switch.
Go to SX.Xecuter.com and download the latest version of SX OS, the current version is V2.9.2 Beta, supports Switch V9.0.1 and all lower versions. Extract the SX OS .zip archive and place the contents of the archive on the root of your microSD card.
Remove the microSD Card from your computer and insert it into your Nintendo Switch.
3. Boot into the RCM Mode and CFW on Switch.
Insert the SX Pro dongle and jig tool into your Nintendo Switch. The dongle goes into the USB-C charger port and the jig tool goes into the right joycon rail. Hold the volume-up button as you press the power button.
SX OS should start. You can remove the dongle and jig tool once SX OS starts. In a couple of seconds you should see the SX OS logo. Select the “Boot into custom FW” option.
4. Activate the SX OS to use its Full Features.

Except that you can also change Foliage Visibility Range and Right Stick Sensitivity has now lowest value 0.01 instead of 0.5.

And additional info: It’s possible to unlock 60 FPS and also change dynamic resolution frametime interval. Works pretty well after adjusting DR frametime to 14 ms. Also I will release 30 FPS fix for cutscenes, because it looks like devs decided to set frametime interval for it to 40 ms (gameplay has 31.5 ms), which is causing more FPS drops than gameplay. Only con will be worse graphics in cutscenes. 60 FPS mods needs additional IPS patch, so it will be released separately. It’s possible to add option to settings, but it will reset to default after turning off game, because those settings are not included in save function.
