At this point, I have 0 reason to not believe her.

But I guess the specific date doesn't matter at this point.

So March 12 in Japan and NA? PAL always seems to get the short end of the stick so I wouldn't be surprised if it was earlier in other regions.

Will Nintendo stick with Sundays as console release days in the US?
So the 12th or the 19th if that's the case.

If it's March 17th in PAL regions, and the worldwide launch is that week, but with different days for different regions, then it's March 18th for Japan, since Saturdays are major game and console launches happen.

So...yeah. MHXX would come out on the exact same day.

Monster Hunter XX launches on March 18th.

Coincidence?
Yes? 3DS has an install base of 21+ million in Japan to the Switch's zero. I mean its possible, hell maybe even probable, but the idea its some kind of certainty especially at launch is weird. Nintendo is still going to sell 3DS systems in 2017.

It's not been announced whether Zelda: BotW will launch with the Switch or not. Until we get official confirmation it's nothing more than an assumption.
I would definitely hope they'd have it out by launch, because let's face it, other than some enhanced Wii U ports like Mario Kart 8, what other big game would Nintendo have to get people to buy the thing?

Hmmm. Glad it's sounding mid rather than late March. Was hoping early March, of course :p.

It makes sense. EU - Friday, JP - Saturday, NA - Sunday. AKA the favourite day of the week for launches per region.

MHXX launches on 18th of March (Saturday) in Japan.
