The release date for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may have been leaked online.
According to an online listing from Target (via IGN), the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild will release on June 13th (the listing has since been changed to “coming soon”). This listing coincides with the recent rumor that the upcoming Zelda title will not release alongside the Nintendo Switch, but rather later in the year. The developer has not yet given an official release date for the upcoming title, promising only that Breath of the Wild will see a 2017 release.
This is not the only leaked release date involving Breath of the Wild. Earlier this year, the release date for the Breath of the Wild amiibo was leaked as well. According to the leak, the amiibo could release on March 4th, 2017. It is important to note, however, that March 4th is a Saturday, and most amiibo figures release on Friday. This could have been a placeholder date, as the information has since been removed, and the listing now just states 2017 as the figure’s release date.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U in 2017.
