New rumours surfacing online indicate that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may not be ready in time for the launch of the Nintendo Switch. Localisation of the game is taking more time than expected.


According to the new rumours Nintendo needs additional time to translate the game's Japanese text to English for the release in the Western market. Nintendo is expected to be busy with the translation of the game until the end of this year.
After translation work is done the game goes through a 6 month testing phase to make sure that the game does not include bugs or translation errors. As a result the game is most likely going to be released in the Summer of 2017 and not in March 2017 as many gamers had hoped.

Nintendo has not yet confirmed the release date of the game. Since the game's announcement the company has not given a release date for the game, except for stating that it would be released in 2017.

Nintendo is expected to release more information on the Nintendo Switch at a press conference hosted in January 2017.
