The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been an incredibly long time coming. The game was expected to land on the Wii U years ago, but also it has now more or less paced over the console to move onto the Switch (though a Wii U version is coming).
Well, finally, finally, the game is on the horizon. No fact better illustrates that than a game going gold. That means the code that is going to be printed on disks (or in this case cartridges too) is now done.
Of course, there will likely be a lot of work still to be done on the game before release, with patches and tweaks to gameplay coming. However this is a clear sign the game is just on the horizon, and I for one am quite exited about that.
