And while they have video games, literature, series, most of the story within The Witcher universe is not told in such a wide-ranging fashion, leaving fans eager to know the stories that lie within those gaps. and expect to see it once with my own eyes Maybe because they want to create more understanding. to feel more ‘accessible’ to this franchise than ever before.

An important element of The Witcher is the choice of “Nothing is right. There’s nothing wrong with it.” It’s also in The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, where you’ll have to think about each action of the characters, even Vesemir, what they’re doing. Are they doing it right? And who exactly is the villain?

Discuss with the characters what is good, what is bad, and what is less bad. Or it might be nothing good or bad at all. It’s just that each person’s thoughts are not the same.
What’s interesting, besides the plot and the content, would be the commendable animation design.
