Didn't see a dedicated thread to this so I thought I would start one so people can put videos they find in one place.  



Game looks great and I can't wait to play it.  But 2017 for a release so I guess I will be waiting.

Yeah, I'm definitely excited for this one!  Although I guess if it launches with the NX I may just end up getting it on there rather than on the Wii U since it's bound to be the more impressive version.

I haven't played a Zelda game since Majora's Mask, so I'm a bit out of touch with all things Link Tongue Would love to play Breath though, looks incredible. Don't want to buy a Wii U just to play it though biggrin

What's going on with Zelda: Breath of the Wild's release date?

Quote
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild looks like it's back on for a March release, alongside the launch of Nintendo Switch - at least in Japan and North America.

Quote
But what about Europe? The situation here is less clear.

Last year, sources close to Nintendo told Eurogamer that Zelda was content complete but "still four-to-six months" from launch and would miss the Nintendo Switch's March release. Since then, things have changed.

At this point, the game was still to go through a lengthy period of quality assurance testing and localisation - necessary due to the game's vast size, scope and sandbox nature, plus the need for Nintendo of Europe to perform its customary translation into multiple languages.

Also key was the desire within Nintendo for the game - first announced for Wii U back in 2013 - to launch in as perfect condition as possible. The lack of Zelda at the Switch's launch could also be mitigated by Nintendo's new 3D Mario, development of which was effectively complete and ready for a March arrival.

Quote
So, what changed? Multiple sources close to Nintendo have now told Eurogamer that, at the end of last year, Japan finalised its plans and had a change of heart: Switch needed the strongest possible launch lineup. In short, Zelda will release in March in North America and Japan. Zelda's launch timing in Europe is still unclear.

Nintendo of Europe, which will be impacted most by this change, had previously pushed for as long a period of testing and localisation as could be allowed and had been working to the proposed schedule of a global launch after the Switch itself.

One source tells Eurogamer that Japan had always wanted the game to launch in March, and had been uncomfortable waiting until later. Another source says the decision to move ahead with March regardless of Europe was only finalised by committee at the end of last year.

After Nintendo's big Switch event last week we now know the release date of Breath of the Wild - March 3, 2017

I will be picking it up on the Wii U since there just wasn't even on the Switch to make me feel like I had to have it.  I know it won't play ask well but I bet I won't notice.

I think I'll be picking it up on the Wii U as well. 

If I still had a ton of disposable income I'm sure I would get a Switch and get it on there, but since I don't there doesn't really seem to be a big incentive to play it on the newer system.

Pretty sure that Nintendo has said they expect both versions to run at the same framerate, so hopefully the only difference is a bit of draw distance and some texture detail.

I am thinking load times will also be longer on the Wii U.  I am just hoping it is the main area load and not each doorway we go through.
