It has been reported that Zelda may not launch with the Switch. According to Eurogamer, localization for Breath of the Wild will not be completed until December. After that, the game will need approximately four-to-six months of testing before it is ready to be released. Since the game has been in development for so long, Nintendo wants the game to be as close to perfection as possible.

While Nintendo never said that Breath of the Wild would launch with the Nintendo Switch, it was a basic assumption due to the fact that the game had been in development for so long. It is also being released for the Wii U as well. If Zelda isn’t able to launch with Nintendo’s newest console, there are rumblings that the newest Mario game will launch with the Switch.

While this is a huge disappointment if true, gamers won’t have to wait that much longer for Breath of the Wild’s release. Right now none of this information is confirmed, so the game very well may release alongside the Switch at launch. The game is going to be absolutely massive in scale so regardless if we have to wait another month or two for its release, gamers will not be disappointed.
