Okay, so according to a number of sources including the reliable folks over at Eurogamer
, it sounds like the brilliant-looking The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won't be ready in time for the launch of the Nintendo Switch. As per the accounts, localisation work is still being completed on the title and then a further four to six months of testing and fine-tuning is expected to take place.
Which would put the title's release somewhere in the June region of 2017, a few months after the launch of Nintendo's next console the Switch. Now, any delays at this point are probably a good thing, as Nintendo are probably the only developer left in the world that release a game when it's done, and without a further month or two of hefty patches in order to get it into a proper release state.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also marks Nintendo's most ambitious open-world endeavor yet, with early signs pointing to an experience unlike any other title currently in release or development.
So what does this mean for the Nintendo Switch launch? Well, we're not entirely sure, but Nintendo has stated in the past that they won't be releasing a new console without the right software to back it up. Which means rumours that the next Mario game will be ready in time for the launch.
