Rumor: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild won’t release in March 2017

It is rumored that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will not arrive in March 2017 as planned, but a few months later. This is according to information released by the reporter Emily Rogers.

According Emily Rogers, the next Zelda will not be ready for the month of March 2017, the game requires a considerable effort to be fully localized. A difficulty and a will to perfection that might delay the game to the summer of 2017.

In a recent publication, the insider wrote: “They’ve told me that localization for Breath of the Wild might not be finished until the end of December. After localization is completed, this game will require between (at least) four-to-six months of testing.”

“This is one of Nintendo’s largest and most ambitious games ever,” said Rogers. “The amount of testing required for a huge open-world game like this is enormous. Nintendo’s intention is to have the game as bug free as possible.”

As additional information, the informant said that the version of Breath of the Wild for Switch could run better than Wii U, and also mentioned that the game will be more difficult for the demo presented at E3 2016 because, apparently, Nintendo lowered difficulty in the press event.

Breath of the Wild is one of the biggest games Nintendo has ever developed. It’s probably bigger than Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and Wind Waker combined. And despite all the help it brings to the game, delays seem difficult to hold.

    Probably bigger than those three games combined? Is this true?
    Regardless..I’m both saddened and relieved at the possible delay. Didn’t want to get a switch launch. This makes it easier.
