If you were expecting to purchase Switch together with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in March, we have bad news to share with you: Breath of the Wild won’t be available in March, at least regarding the latest rumor spread by Emily Rogers.
- Localization of Breath of the Wild is taking so much time, more than Nintendo expected at first. This process should be finished in December. After the localization, Breath of the Wild should be tested deeply from 4-6 months (at least). Therefore, the game won’t make it to be ready in March. A summer 2017 release would be more plausible.
- Breath of the Wild runs smoother on Switch than on Wii U.
- Nintendo would increase the difficulty a bit in the final version. The big N reduced the difficulty in the E3 demo to do the exploration enjoyable for press members.
Also, there's a new rumor which states that Breath of the Wild Switch ver. could be released on June 16 in UK. Wii U version would reach the shelves on June 23 in the same territory.
Nintendo are internally aiming for a June 16 2017 UK Breath of the Wild Switch release. Aiming Wii U for June 23 2017 UK.— Laura Kate Dale (@LaurakBuzz) November 23, 2016
Every story has two sides and we have got another perspective to add to the Breath of the Wild delay: the game has been rated in Australia. This movement could mean that Breath of the Wild is almost finished.
Nintendo could be planning to launch a Xenoblade X port on Switch. This port would be ready to be launched in 2018 (never before that year).
Xenoblade X port is not being developed by Monolith, they're working on something new ground up for Switch. 2018 earliest. Not launch year.— Laura Kate Dale (@LaurakBuzz) November 23, 2016
