After almost almost a two year delay, “The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” finally has an official release date. The game, which will launch alongside the Nintendo Switch, carries some notable pros and cons.

While the game will also be available for the Wii U on the same day, “Legend Of Zelda” producer Eiji Aonuma spoke with IGN and confirmed that “Breath Of The Wild” will be best played on the Nintendo Switch. The console will apparently allow for the franchise’s best resolution and most reduced load times.

The technical benefits of “The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” are because, as Aonuma explained, it is easier and therefore faster to obtain data from a game card than from a disc. He then went on to confirm, however, that frame rate between the Nintendo Switch and the Wii U would be the same.

Nevertheless, Shigeru Miyamoto also confirmed that gameplay will be smooth. Nintendo has made practical use of the last two years and tucked in all of the game’s loose corners. “The world in ‘Breath Of The Wild’ is all seamless,” he said.

“The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” will require 13.4GB of storage space if it is downloaded to the Nintendo Switch. This game alone will cut the internal space by almost half, as the upcoming console only has 32GB of built in memory. This means that in order to play more games, individuals will need to purchase more storage space in the form of microSDXC cards.

A representative from Nintendo has already confirmed in a statement made to Game Informer that the console will be able to support as much as 2TB of extra memory -- when such technology is made available in the market. Currently, the highest capacity of microSDXC cards is 254GB.

“The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” will launch on March 3 with the Nintendo Switch in the United States. Australian gamers can pre order the game now for AU$190 and expect delivery by March 3 as well.
