Nintendo Switch news (Feb. 21) – Zelda: Breath of the Wild @ Nintendo NY / File sizes (JP) / HDCP

Today’s Nintendo Switch news: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild playable at the Nintendo NY Store starting today, but also…

  • Files sizes (Japan)
  • HDCP
  • 1-2-Switch
  • Disagea 5 Complete

Nintendo NY Store

Does playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on a 15ft gaming wall sound exciting to you? If yes, you better make sure to drop by the Nintendo NY Store, in New York, where you will be able to do just that starting today!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U, Switch) comes out on March 3rd, worldwide.

File sizes (Japan)

Thanks to Nintendo’s official website in Japan, we now have the file size for various Nintendo Switch games:


Earlier today, French website Jeux-Video-Live reported that the Nintendo Switch would use HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), a digital protection measure that can be used to restrict recording of copyrighted content.

According to Nintendo, developers are free to chose whether HDCP is used with a game or not. In other words, it seems to work just like on Wii U, where it was rarely enforced.

Unfortunately, the article from Jeux-Video-Live was removed, and it’s not clear why exactly (it’s probably safe to assume Nintendo didn’t want that particular tidbit out yet). Hopefully, Nintendo will provide some proper details about that ahead of the Nintendo Switch launch.

Here’s two commercials for 1-2-Switch:

1-2-Switch (Switch) releases on March 3rd, worldwide.

Disagea 5 Complete

Last week, NIS America announced that Disgaea 5 Complete would be released on May 26th in Europe (and May 23rd in North America). If you were wondering whether Europe would get the Limited Edition, the answer is… yes! In fact, pre-orders for it will begin on Thursday (February 23rd) at 12PM GMT / 1PM CET!

Disgaea 5 Complete (Switch) will be released on March 3rd in Japan, May 23rd in North America, and May 26th in Europe.
