Nintendo closed this morning's Switch event with confirmation that Zelda: Breath of the Wild will launch alongside Nintendo Switch on 3rd March.

That goes for the Wii U version, too.

We were also treated to a lavish new trailer for the game - featuring our first look at Zelda herself, and a voiceover which sounds like it's from her dad.

Breath of the Wild's release date is also confirmation of Eurogamer's recent report that the game's launch had been moved up to arrive alongside the console - even though this had previously not been the plan.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
