Nintendo has confirmed that Zelda: Breath of the Wild will launch alongside the Switch console.

The Nintendo Switch will launch on March 3, 2017 for $299, and it'll include a rather interesting software library--but the main first-party game that everyone's been waiting for will release right along with it. Link's latest open-world adventure in Hyrule has been delayed many times over, but now it's finally coming out, and it looks incredible.

Keep an eye out for our full analysis of the Nintendo Switch hardware and content lineup tomorrow. I plan to have a fully reaction video where I dissect just how monumental the Nintendo Switch is, and how it's a massive game changer for the industry--and least of all Nintendo.
