Breath of the Wild is a confirmed launch title for the Switch

Voice acting, too

While the President of Nintendo was reluctant is actually say it, the trailer shown at the end of the Switch presentation confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. This doesn’t necessarily mean the Wii U port will be launching at the same date, but I think Nintendo would be unwise to make the same mistake they did with Twilight Princess on GameCube and Wii.

Along with a ridiculously epic trailer comes another small confirmation; this Zelda title will actually have voice acting. Link didn’t utter a word, but every other character, including the Princess herself, spoke. It looks like they won’t be going with a made up language, either.

In all honesty, I’m down for that. I’ve been a bit reluctant to have voice acting in a Zelda title, but having them emote more and act melodramatic just looks too good. This is like some Yakuza style drama going on and I’m down to see the plot of Breath of the Wild play out.
