Nintendo Switch to launch March 2017 with Zelda

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-2017-globally

Is that a surprise announcement? I wasn't expecting it. It's also been officially confirmed that Zelda will be delayed until the NX launch and will come out on both platforms, like Twilight Princess.

Urgh. ******* Nintendo. A mate of mine is always asking me about Zelda and how it's going to be out this year and I always say nope, I bet it gets pushed back again. I hate being right.

Edit: And before someone rolls out the famous Miyamoto quote, yeah I know. My disappointment is more in how much of a **** show their announcement handling and line-up/frequency of games on Wii U has been/is/and forever will be.

I always thought they were being optimistic with a Christmas 2016 release.

You can never rule out what Nintendo are going to come up with but the gaming landscape is changing fast and they do seem rather lost at the moment.

Christmas 2016 was a bit optimistic but wasn't there a rumour going round that there would be two NX 'consoles' at one point; an upgrade to the 3DS first which was followed by the new console ?

Wish they'd just develop for iOS instead at this stage!

They need to prove that they're going to support this better than they did the Wii U before I'll go anywhere near it. Relying on one or two first party games every year isn't going to cut it.

Seriously, the WiiU isn't getting a proper exclusive Zelda game? Glad I sold mine

I suppose this will be another stupid console that requires a special sensor in a very particular place to use (thus discounting anyone who doesn't game on a ******* TV set) and will end its life having only amassed about ten games that were ever worth buying (all first party as mentioned above). I wish nintendo would just give up this pointless dream of reconquering the home-console market and stick to what they do best: Portables and games. The ship has sailed, Microsoft and Sony won!

I'm betting they'll go with the Wii-U controller with a built in screen, but slightly more powerful hardware.

To be fair to Nintendo, the Wii was a huge success. That was only the previous console, so they're hardly on a massive barren run. I'd say they've got at least another go in them

Nintendo is nintendo to compare them to Sony/Microsoft is pretty pointless.

The Wii U failed but all the other consoles have made them billions. (Even the Gamecube was more profitable than the ps2.) They've got more than a few goes in them yet.

I think it's safe to say the NX will be some kind of portable console that you can play on the TV.

Don't Nintendo always make a profit on the console? Or was that a myth
