Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the final entry in the first-party Wii U titles that will be coming to the old console now that the Nintendo Switch is slated to be coming out at the beginning of March. Breath of the Wild will be a launch title for the console.

Nintendo has decided to finally pull the plug on the Wii U when it comes to first-party support now that the Switch is almost here, and with the company shifting its focus to the new console the Wii U will now go the way of the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360, being left to slowly die out as the company moves on to the next generation of gaming.

However, despite there being no more first-party Wii U titles in the works, Nintendo isn’t quite ready to put the original Splatoon game and Mario Kart 8 to rest. According to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Amie, Nintendo is going to continue supporting those games for a while longer before finally stopping support, though whether they’ll retain an active player base once Splatoon 2 and the premium version of Mario Kart 8 that’s coming with the Switch arrive remains to be seen.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a good showcase as to why it will be the last of the first-party Wii U titles that will be coming to the console with the arrival of the Switch. The Wii U version of the game does not have graphics that are as good as the Switch version, with lower resolution and lower-quality sound, and when put up against the Switch as to how good the game looks you can see why Nintendo is moving away from the Wii U now.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release on March 3, 2017.
