Zelda: Breath Of The Wild to release first on Nintendo Switch
Nintendo has handled The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in quite a dissapointing way, after a teaser trailer released two years after the Wii U launched, Nintendo was almost completely silent about it for all of 2015! In early 2016, Nintendo reassured that, while Breath of the Wild was going to release on their new upcoming console (now finally known as the Nintendo Swtich), the Wii U version still existed and would be released simultaneously. However, according to freelance journalist Laura Kate Dale, Nintendo is planning to not only delay the release of Breath of the Wild to Junes, but its also going to release the Switch version in the United Kingdom one week before the Wii U version (ate the very, with the Switch seeing its release on June 16th 2017, while it will release on the Wii U in the same territory on June 23th 2017.
What is ultimately upsettiing is that Wii U owners have waited since 2012 for the release of a new Zelda console game, and the fact that the one they are finally going to have might not even be the first version released of it is quite a slap in the face for those who actually spent their money on a Wii U. Someone could argue that Wii U buyers are a minority that doesnt really matter anymore, but those 13 million buyers arent going to forget as easily.
