The Breath of the Wild Release date may have been outed by way of the amiibo release date, possibly paving the way for the launch date for Nintendo’s epic title which may have been leaked on several official European Nintendo websites. The release date is listed as March 4, 2017. The date also shows up in the sites’ source code.
This may point the way to both Breath of the Wild’s release date but also the release date for the codename Nintendo NX. This Breath of the Wild release date is plausible, considering the NX was said to release in March and Breath of the Wild is a no-brainer as a launch title for the system. The last time a Nintendo system launched with a Zelda game was the Wii, and that game, Twilight Princess, had an initial 75% attach rate to the system. There is no doubt that Breath of the Wild will launch on the Nintendo NX, it’s just a matter of when the system will be released. The Super Smash Bros. amiibo were released in the same time frame as Super Smash Bros. was released for the Wii U, so it is likely that if this information is legit, this is the launch window for the NX.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
