Didn't matter; people were desperate to play it, hardly anyone owned a Wii U, and given the choice between buying a dead platform nobody wanted or cared about or an exciting new system that let you play it anywhere, well, it was hardly a choice at all.

But the choice existed, nonetheless. Breath of the Wild didn't forced you to own a Switch, it was just the better of the two options.

You're never "forced" to own anything. There's always the option of just skipping it. BOTW single-handedly carried the successful launch of one of the fastest selling systems ever.

A game does not necessarily have to be exclusive to be a killer app. If a game is desirable enough that people will buy the hardware it runs on in large numbers just to play it, then it is a killer app.
