Do you think excitement has dwindled for the launch of the Nintendo SWITCH after rumors came out about Zelda: Breath of the Wild not launching with the system? In my opinion, it doesn’t change a thing. I am still very excited about the system, its features and capabilities, and it’s potential software library that I will be getting one at launch. The latest rumors have stated Breath of the Wild may not launch with the system.. or even within the launch window (first 3 months). While this may disappoint some, I think it’s important to understand why. Breath of the Wild is Nintendo’s BIGGEST game EVER. Localizing has been rumored to be taking longer then expected and wh... »
