PC gamers, your monopoly on role-playing games featuring playing cards with buxom women on them has just ended. Polish developer CD Projekt RED announced today that it will be releasing the 2007 PC RPG The Witcher on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 next year.

The console remake, entitled The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf, will be released in Autumn 2009. White Wolf will sport a shiny new graphics engine as well as a new combat system, because CD Projekt knows how much you console gamers like looking at pretty things and beating people up.

It's not clear whether the game, which puts you in the shoes of a professional monster hunter named Geralt, will be censored further for its console release. In the PC version, you slept with women and then earned playing cards adorned with their pictures as a reward. These pictures were made a little more "modest" for the North American release but it wouldn't be hard to imagine that aspect of the game being scrubbed altogether to make the 360/PS3 version more friendly to younger audiences.

More importantly, there's no mention of whether the D'jinni adventure editor, the toolset that allows you to create your own Witcher modules, will be included in White Wolf. We'll let you know what we hear about this.
