Last year, CD Projekt RED gifted the world with "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," the open world action role-playing video game that is the third installment in the series. It follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a witcher who goes on a journey to find his loved one, the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg.

"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" celebrated its anniversary this year with the Game of the Year edition, which was released in August. Back in 2013 and 2015, the game garnered several best role-playing game awards from various critics groups and bodies. The highly-acclaimed game also garnered positive reviews from both critics and gamers alike.

The latest news to arrive at "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" is that new mods continue to pour in thanks to gamers all over the world. One particular gamer has created an awesome mod that downgrades the graphic quality of the game, giving it a 3DS treatment.

According to GameSpot, "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" gets a 3DS treatment thanks to mod downgrades by Reddit user Linas_002. His mod made the game look like a 3DS game because of its lower resolution.
