We know that the Nintendo Switch is set for release in March (some of you may even get to try it out in the next few days), but just a couple months away from launch, we still know very little about what games will be available for it and when. Easily the most anticipated title is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and while we’ve seen some titillating teasers, we still don’t know for sure when it’s coming out. Nintendo’s been mum on the release date, but based on new leaked images posted by Twitter user DroidXAce, it sure does look like the upcoming Zelda game will be released alongside the console (via ARS Technica).
The photos are of internal document from the game-peripheral company Hori, and the most enticing of which shows a “Zelda Breath of the Wild Skin Set,” an officially Nintendo-licensed product that has a release date of March 2017. That alone doesn’t mean that Breath of the Wild will be a launch title, but it sure would be cruel of Hori to give us skins for a game that’s not even available. This is purely speculation at this point, but we feel confident that this is at least a good sign that the game will come along earlier in the console’s life rather than later.

The documents also show that Hori is readying a fighting-stick controller accessory, yet no fighting games have been announced, so perhaps this means Namco or another third-party developer has something brewing?
Check out the rest of the documents here and see if you can uncover any more secrets (and obviously, PLEASE let us know if you do).
