Woo-hoo! Darkest Dungeon is coming to the Switch! I've loved playing the game on my Vita/PS4! Totally recommend this game to anyone looking for a new RPG.

Ah, so the grinding complaints are real then. I've heard reviews mention that, but I just assumed it was reviewers only saying that because it's an RPG.
I only ask because the PSN version I got came with the Crimson Court expansion. Haven't looked too much into it other than the new playable class that came with it.
I don't know if the PSN version gives you the option of turning off the DLC, but I would highly recommend it if it's your first playthrough. It adds a mechanic that forces you to do the DLC area, and punishes you if you try to ignore it.
Also, as far as the grinding goes, (minor spoiler)
Completing any level of the Darkest Dungeon (the in-game dungeon of said name, not the game itself) gives all surviving members a debuff that no longer lets them enter the Darkest Dungeon. It basically means that you need a minimum of 16 max level characters to finish the game. I've heard they've added a new difficulty that reduces the grinding somewhat, but I don't know to what extent.
The PSN version lets you choose to make the DLC part of the game. Also it has different difficulty levels. Wasn't really sure which was which (and didn't even know they were difficulty options until later!) so I just chose the first difficulty.
Also the Shieldbreaker DLC came out. It's not part of that, but it's a fun new class.
