Following the news of Breath of the Wild not being a Nintendo Switch title, additional Wii U news has come to light.

When Emily Rogers first wrote about the delay, she wrote that the Nintendo Switch version of the game was running a lot smoother than the Wii U version, well today in an article by Laura Kate Dale, which goes into detail regarding the Switch’s launch line-up, Breath of the Wild also comes up. Although sources are saying the game will not come to the Switch at release, but sometime later on down the line, the same is for the Wii U version of the game, but a Wii U version is still happening, so just in case there was doubt, at least we know the Wii U version is still a thing, because there was growing doubt it wouldn’t be.


Following recent reports that Zelda: Breath of the Wild would miss the Switch’s March launch, we have not only heard the same information independently, but also that the Wii U version is not going to hit the previously expected launch date either. We have heard that, even though the game will not launch until several months into the Switch’s lifespan, Nintendo still plans to release a Wii U version of the game.”


As far as Dale’s report goes, it’s well worth checking out, so make sure you click on the link below:
