The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s Amiibo figures may have had their release date leaked by Nintendo’s European websites. Originally spotted byReddit, we were able to confirm that the UK website displays the March 4 release date in the “Discover more Amiibo” section of the webpage.
The leaked Amiibo release date could suggest that the release date for Breath of the Wild comes before or on the same day as March 4. As it stands, no Amiibo has released before its supported game–though this is not a confirmation of the release date.
This leak could also suggest that this is when the NX releases, though it’s not confirmed that both the Wii U and NX version of Breath of the Wild will launch on the same day. We’ve contacted Nintendo for comment on the situation and will update this article as we hear back.
It’s important to note that March 4, 2017, is a Saturday, and the vast majority of Amiibo figures have debuted on Fridays. Saturday is also an irregular day for a game launch, though Nintendo’s Wii U did release on November 18, a Sunday, alongside many games.
Nintendo announced earlier this year that the NX would launch in March 2017, with Breath of the Wild coming the same year. It was delayed multiple times and appeared as the only playable Nintendo game at E3 2016. You can read ourhands-on impressions of the upcoming Zelda game here.
