The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild release date possibly leaked by Nintendo France
Leaks, especially when they’re connected to Nintendo, aren’t always a reliable and accurate indicator of reality. However, Nintendo France may have accidentally outed a release date for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild earlier this week.
Yesterday, the Nintendo France site displayed a March 4, 2017 release date for the three Amiibo figures in the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild series. The consolemaker quickly amended the website, but not before a Reddit user captured a screenshot of the page.
There’s a chance that Nintendo France was using a placeholder date on their website, but it’s equally possible that the company plans to launch the Amiibo figures and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (and, by extension, the NX console) on March 4. Each step in this chain requires its own grain of salt, but Nintendo has previously said that the NX will launch in March, so it’s not that far-fetched. Though we also have to consider the possibility this release date only applies to the Amiibo figures. It’s not uncommon for the company to launch Amiibo figures before the game they’re connected to, and Nintendo could be planning to launch Breath of the Wild at a later date.
Nintendo did not respond to media outlets that asked for a comment on the possible release date leak.
Let’s hope Nintendo makes an official announcement related to the NX/Zelda: Breath of the Wild soon. The suspense is killing me.
