Whyyyyyy

"Due to the nature of causality, we must announce that the Nintendo Switch version of will be pushed back to summer of 2018..."

Probably ran into a problem (that doesnt occure on the PS4/XB1), and need time to figour out how to deal with it on the Switch.

If that will make the game look better and not have framerate issues then ok. Take the time.



Woah, what the fuck? I was legitimately shocked to see this thread title on the front page, it seemed like Bandai and Nintendo were really pushing the Switch version, like someone else already said they even gave Nintendo the first reveal of it. Would not have expected it to be delayed.

I still think the game will sell well on Switch, but this will probably affect it a bit now that it's just gonna be a late port. Unless Bandai Namco is hoping for people who are gonna double dip when the Switch version later comes out. 

Ultimately if the game needs more time then it's good that they're willing to delay it for that since it means a better final product in the end usually, but damn that sucks.



Damn its not good feeling when dealay game that supposed to be out next month, but I guess I will buy it in summer than.



Porting to the Switch probably isn't easy. I suspect they're having trouble optimizing the game for such a weak hardware. I'd be glad if I was a nintendo fan, to be honest. Better wait a few months than have a 10 fps blighttown...again.

We already saw footage and game is running well. In fact, during pax demo players could go anywhere within 10 mins or first death.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

You clearly don't know what you're talking about. It's a PS3/X360 game, it's way more powerful than the first two, the game already run at 1080p.

Game after game after game indeed Bandai.

Seriously, this is just pitiful. The remaster barely looks like a remaster on Switch.



Doesn't bode well for the Switch but there are still three viable platforms that you can pick up day one on the 25th of May.

We already saw Blighttown though and it was running really well.
