After watching Nintendo show off Breath of the Wild at E3 this year for over six hours, there is no more excuses for them not to currently have a solid release date, or even a confirmed release year. There have been so many delays and reasons as to why this new Zelda title has been pushed back that Nintendo has finally been just been giving the game a 2017 release window. According to recent news from the Big N themselves, they're still sticking to that year...

The next Zelda game to release, Breath of the Wild, recentlywon IGN's "game of the show" award. The latest development in Breath of the Wild's path for world domination is that the game has been nominated in not one, not two, but three categories for the Game Critics Best of E3 Awards. The categories are as follows...

Hyrule Warriors Legends is going to have a new DLC based on Link's Awakening, haven't you heard? We have mentioned the DLC in previous articles before, but there was some questions on whether or not the DLC would be releasing in both Europe and North America on at the same time.

It's clear that Nintendo is hedging all of their bets on Breath of the Wild since it is the only first-party game that has been confirmed for their upcoming NX system so far. They've certainly impressed a lot of people at E3 2016 since gaming news outlets around the world are enthusiastic by what this newest Zelda title has to offer. Even Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime believes in this game as he thinks it will be the key to the NX's success...

It appears we certainly won't have to worry if Breath of the Wild is going to be a profitable venture for Nintendo. They seem to consistently buck industry trends when it comes to budgets, where a game in development for close to six years that is the pure size of Breath of the Wild will be profitable after just 2 million in sales. Of course, that's nothing to scoff at, but with a dual release on the current Wii U and brand new NX platform, it will assuredly shatter that mark. This is also noteworthy because...

Did the demonstration at E3 2016 lead you to believe that Breath of the Wild is finished? Well, in one regard it very well may be. In total, according to the recent 76th Meeting of Shareholders hosted last night in Japan, Breath of the Wild had 300 total developers over the last five years. That's no surprise given old reports that this is the most expensive game Nintendo has ever made, so it was always safe to assume this title had the most developers in Nintendo's history (Skyward Sword previously held that record)...

A few months back, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima shared that the company was considering a venture in the film industry. While he did not announce anything official, he did admit that he hoped Nintendo would have its first film ready within two to three years. Well, Kimishima and Nintendo have not swayed from this dream as revealed during today's Nintendo shareholder meeting. Kimishima shared that Nintendo is currently in talks with an external partner in order to work on films together...

Nintendo's plans to release 5 smartphone apps by March 2017 are still in place, as confirmed in their shareholder's meeting in Japan. We know of three right now — one of course is the already-released Miitomo. The other two are based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing.

As for the other pair of apps, Nintendo has not talked about what IP they will be using...

Nintendo's decision to withhold NX info from E3 and showcase Breath of the Wild definitely made headlines, and many expected the company to show it off during the expo. Shigeru Miyamoto has offered an explanation as to why they did this...
