Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one of the hottest titles of 2017, no doubt. The series has always amazed fans with smart dungeons and charming stories, so expectations are high. With that in mind, should Breath of the Wild be delayed even more? Granted, the game doesn’t even have a release date, but should the title receive more tweaks before its Nintendo Switch debut?
Nintendo wants to give the Switch a big launch, hence the rumored bundle with Mario, Splatoon and Skyrim. However, they shouldn’t rush the Switch version of Breath of the Wild. It’s possible that both versions of the game were worked on simultaneously, but that seems doubtful. Here are three reasons why the game should be delayed on the Nintendo Switch.
To Give The Wii U Some Spotlight
This might sound petty, but Zelda: Breath of the Wild was once called Zelda Wii U. Many were hoping that the game would save the Wii U, but it will now be its farewell title. With a new Mario game on the launch date, the Nintendo Switch should do fine when it comes out. Of course, the game shouldn’t just be done for the Wii U. It should be done so that the title looks and plays great on the Switch as well.
To Keep Fans Excited For The Switch
Aside from some rad technology, there isn’t much known about the Switch’s library of titles. While a new Zelda game is cause for celebration, some might think that Nintendo is just relying on their older properties. With that in mind, delaying the new Zelda game and giving other titles a chance to shine would be great. Plus, it allows fans to get excited for the game and the system when the title finally comes out.
To Make It Look Better
While far from ugly, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild doesn’t look like a next-gen title. To be fair, the bright colors and stylized graphics keep it beautiful, but it pales in comparison to other titles for PS4 and Xbox One. Graphics aren’t everything, but the game has the potential to be the best-looking Zelda game of all time. Nintendo should take advantage of the Switch’s technology.
