Nintendo likely won’t have anything to say about the launch lineup of the Switch until early next year, but in the absence of any official news, leaks and rumors have continued to spread. On Wednesday, two of the most reliable Switch informants, Laura Dale and Emily Rogers, shared some new information regarding the games that are expected to hit Nintendo’s Switch around launch.
Save for possibly Pokemon Sun and Moon, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most anticipated Nintendo game of the near future. The title is coming to both Wii U and Nintendo’s recently announced Switch console, but all the footage we’ve seen so far has come from the Wii U version of the game.
Sadly, that’s also true of this new footage, but that shouldn’t stop you from watching 40 minutes of gameplay from what might be the Wii U’s last great game.
At long last, the next Zelda game has a name.
Nintendo says The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the biggest games it has ever worked on, with an enormous open world to explore, enemies to battle, horses to tame and weapons to wield.
Although we’re still waiting to see more gameplay from the E3 2016 live stream, Nintendo has released a full trailer on YouTube to help tide us over in the meantime.
The traditional press conferences are over, but Nintendo still has something interesting in store for E3 2016. As we explained last month, Nintendo will forego both a stage presentation and a Nintendo Direct live stream in favor of a more laid-back stream from the Nintendo Treehouse team, featuring some of the company’s biggest upcoming games on Wii U and 3DS.

Last week, Nintendo dropped a bombshell when it announced that it would only bring one playable game to E3 2016. In previous years, Nintendo has had dozens of demo stations for upcoming 3DS and Wii U games, but this year, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will be the only Nintendo game on the show floor.
Nintendo has released HD editions of both The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess during the lifespan of the Wii U, but wouldn’t it be nice if some of the classic games in the series got the same treatment?
15 years ago, the darkest, most complex game in the history of The Legend of Zelda hit store shelves. Majora’s Mask was lauded as another masterpiece of the Nintendo 64 era and a worthy follow-up to Ocarina of Time, but it hasn’t quite had the same legacy as its predecessor.
Now that the game’s incredible looking remaster is finally coming to 3DS, Nintendo has a chance to rewrite history and introduce a whole new generation of gamers to one of its most tragic and fascinating tales.
It’s surprisingly exhilarating to watch someone blast through a video game in minutes that would take a normal person hours to beat. We couldn’t take our eyes off of the ridiculous Super Mario World speedrun last week, good enough for a world record, but just days later we’ve been distracted by another record-setting run of a classic Nintendo game.

While many gamers believed that the trailer shown for The Legend of Zelda Wii U during E3 was just a short animation, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that the incredible E3 trailer showed actual gameplay as opposed to a short movie. More →
