Then in October her sources told her that the game’s localization was not going as smooth as it was planned. One of her sources claims “A very ambitious game, maybe even too much”.

Now in November more of her sources have come forward and revealed some new details about the game’s development. According to the sources, the localization of Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild will not be completed until December, and after that, the game requires at least “four-to-six months of testing”.

Breath Of the Wild is one of the Nintendo’s largest and the most ambitious games ever. Given the game has a huge open world the amount of testing required is enormous. Nintendo intends to release the game as bug-free as possible.

The sources also indicate that the game will not launch in March but has a high chance of being a summer title.

This rumor is in line with the previous rumor, that Mario 3D is going to be the launch title for Nintendo Switch instead of Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild.

Also, the report suggests that Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild runs more smoothly on Nintendo Switch compared to Wii U and the final version of the game is more difficult than what journalist got to play at E3.
