The lack of Zelda at the Switch's launch could also be mitigated by Nintendo's new 3D Mario, development of which was effectively complete and ready for a March arrival. Multiple sources close to Nintendo have now told Eurogamer that, at the end of last year, Japan finalised its plans and had a change of heart: Switch needed the strongest possible launch lineup.
In short, Zelda will release in March in North America and Japan. Nintendo of Europe, which will be impacted most by this change, had previously pushed for as long a period of testing and localisation as could be allowed and had been working to the proposed schedule of a global launch after the Switch itself.
There are also nods to older DLC Pack 1 also introduces the Hero’s Path mode: a map feature that shows specifically where players have been over the past 200 hours of game time.
Link’s journey is shown as a green line across Hyrule, helping players to identify areas they’re yet to explore, or allowing them to retrace their steps to a particularly tricky shrine.
