According to a new report, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will not launch alongside the Nintendo Switch in March.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will not be launching with Nintendo's upcoming new console, the Nintendo Switch, according to a new report. According to Eurogamer, several sources have corroborated a report from Nintendo tipster Emily Rogers, which credits localization with the cause of the later-than-expected release.

According to Rogers, localization for the game will not be complete until December, and four to six months of testing will be needed after that point.

"...this is one of Nintendo's largest and most ambitious games ever," Rogers writes. "The amount of testing required for a huge open-world game like this is enormous. Nintendo's intention is to have the game as bug free as possible."

One source reportedly referred to Breath of the Wild as "a very ambitious game, maybe even too much."

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was first debuted at E3 2016. In June, it was revealed that Monolith Soft is helping with the game, which is being developed by a team of more than 100 people.

Nintendo Switch, previously codenamed Nintendo NX, was revealed in October, with no new information on the console expected before January 12, 2017.
