'Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' Is a Nintendo Switch Launch Title

It'll be out on March 3.


It’s official: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo’s most anticipated new game, will come out on the same day as the Nintendo Switch.

During Friday’s big presentation in Japan, Nintendo executives revealed that the Switch, which serves as both a home video game system and a portable one, will be released in all major markets on March 3, 2017. After revealing a host of new games headed to the system, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé and Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto agonizingly teased the new Zelda game’s release date. Finally, it was revealed after a breathtaking new trailer.

While the news that Breath of the Wild will be a launch title is thrilling on its own, the lengthy new trailer revealed a lot about the forthcoming game. The nearly 4-minute-long trailer shows off beautiful tropical and snowy landscapes and gave us a good look at the titular Princess Zelda, who doesn’t seem like she’s having a good time. Indeed, the plot of this game — which appears to feature pretty thorough voice acting — looks epic, and it seems like it’s going to be a thrilling, emotional experience for fans.
