“Contrary to my past report on BOTW release date it is 100% coming at Switch launch in North America in March. Have seen finalised materials.” Find the full report on WWG.
oh, her...the one that threw a strop because she was black listed by Nintendo so she tried to blackmail them into sending her review copies or she'd leak Switch info. Classy
Nah, that didn't happen.
apart from it did, and it was done on twitter no less
Not much of a threat when everyone else will just leak things regardless of what she does, is it?XD
I absolutely hate self entitled millennials like her, he, it (whatever the person is). In other news, I hope this rumor is true as I can't wait to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
20s is the new teens, and 30s is the new 20s. Many people in their 20s are extremely polite, smart and hardworking, though. Particularly in developing countries. But corporate information that could affect billions of yen worth Nintendo's business and stock price Vs. Review copy. Not mature.
Don't succumb to their nonsense. Gender is an opinion. So refer to them as their sex which is he or she. He referring to male and She referring to female. Sex is not an opinion it is a biological fact based on science and not bullshit opinions. She definitely feels entitled. I also do hope the rumor is true.
She was blacklisted by Nintendo after the leaks, dude. Not before. And her reaction to the blacklist was pretty much "lol", and she kept leaking stuff anyway.
Hot cakes selling in 17 of march !Bundle pls!
if it truly is bundled, then heck yh day one
To clarify: Laura says it will be ready for Switch's launch in NA, but she has no idea if it will launch on time for Europe and Japan. She's heard many conflicting reports, so the only thing she's reporting herself is the March release date for NA.
It's not going to be a March launch for Switch, it is way too soon. Just won't happen.
This game's been in development since around 2011 or 2012. That's 4 or 5 years, give or take. It's not "too soon".
@deafdani: It's been in development for that long but not specifically for Switch. Breath of the Wild was originally designed for Wii U exclusively.
Tapani too soon? we've been waiting forever for Zelda and the Switch I'd say both of them are slightly late if anything. I can't wait to play them both
would be strange for it not to be ready for a Japan launch. Isn't the game usually done in Japanese and then localized to English afterwards?
Yeah, exactly what I'm thinking. Laura, however, isn't stating matter of factly that it will be delayed on other regions, as far as I know. She doesn't know. She's only confirming that she knows for a fact that it's launching in NA in time for the Switch's launch, at the very least. Either way, it's a rather weird and seemingly conflicting report, that much is true.
I'm ready and wild.._lol
You could say that you were born to be wild. :P
Well...we used to be..as a species.
I got $500 for Christmas... I will be using that money to preorder this machine and several games... This game included. I hope this rumor is right!
I'm hoping the Wii U version really isn't scrapped. This game is one of the games I bought the Wii U for.
It's not scrapped. Nintendo would not do that to a console that has an awesome software attach rate despite the low hardware sales. But it most likely will have a limited number of copies available and hard to find on Wii U by next year.
We don't know that, at this point, because Nintendo seems pretty intent on dropping the Wii U as soon as possible, seeing as the Switch is its successor. I hope it's not true, but I won't ignore the possibility.
@wonderful.... I can see how you think that but Nintendo is still pushing for Wii U sales at $299 on Nintendo.com. I would think by now they would remove it or wouldn't want to sell the console if they were not bringing any new games to it in 2017. Buying it on Wii U will be easy the first few months but knowing how Nintendo is becoming weird at demand....expect Zelda on Wii U to be hard to find by the end of summer with crazy dumb mark up prices....lol....but it's coming...I also think Mario Kart 8 owners, Splatoon owners, etc will get value incentives to buy the Switch versions of those said games. They MIGHT even make DLC available to Wii U owners....Nintendo must keep Wii U owners happy if they want them to ever buy another Nintendo console...lol
yeah Nintendo is definitely dropping the Wii U version of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild..........definitely https://www.youtube.com/wat... Nintendo will defintely scrap a version they worked on for 5 years after just showing it a month ago
SAWEEEEETNESSS! Cant wait!
If the Switch is $199 for sure, otherwise I am not paying for underpowered hardware that is not going to even be able to play most triple a games.
You're expecting a system that can play most AAA games just like the PS4 and XB1, only ON THE GO as well as at home, to be priced at $199? Despite the fact that shrinking down tech is expensive and not even Sony or Microsoft could pull that off without charging upwards of $400 or more, and that taking the kind of losses a $199 price tag would bring about per system would be financial and marketing suicide? Share whatever you're smoking, bro, 'cause it's obviously the strong stuff. Your expectations of Nintendo aren't just unfair, they're unrealistic. Especially considering it will be strong enough to handle most AAA games that aren't built specifically around the Scorpio or Pro's specs. (which none will be, considering third parties already said they aren't abandoning the originals for the sake of mid gen alternates) Heck, at this point, the rumored price tag of $299 is already impressive, let alone the rumor of a $249 tag, yet you're asking for it to be a bargain bin special right off the bat...pfft. Just admit that you wouldn't get the system regardless of price, if that's the kind of entry tag you need in order to jump in.
@wonder, *clap* I seriously couldnt have said it better myself, Well Said. Day one pre-order on the Switch for me.
You dont even know nor does anyone know the final hardware. The leaks of "underpowered" hardware seem to be pointing towards July dev kits ( not the newest ones). But we will have to see. But just so you know, 8gb ram was actually a last minute change to the ps4. So even if the newest dev kit was leaked by top of the line developers you still can't be certain. If it's 250 and more powerful than a Wiiu in portable mode I'll be glad to pay that price.
...Why do people keep insisting on the 8 GB PS4 last minute rumor? http://www.techradar.com/ne... The only thing altered at the last minute was resources available to developers, increasing from 4 GB to 4.5.
I guess the rumored delay had something to do with wiiu version so by them cancelling the wiiu version they can ship it with switch and that could help switch gain some big market share early
They are not cancelling the Wii U version, they brought it along to the Game Awards, its pretty obvious it will launch for both platforms.
Seeing as like 9 out 10 games get delayed these days, and even more so ones which have already been rumored to be delayed, I very much doubt it.
I wasn't hoping that it wouldn't be at launch personally, because it would be a reason for me not to get 3rd party titles at launch, as my favorite franchise is Zelda, it'll be a day 1 for me (not to say I'm not gonna buy the 3rd party titles, as I own a good amount of the Wii U ones.)
