Was the Rumored Release of ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ a Fact or a Bluff?

By Jayson R.

Fans of the highly anticipated game "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild" caused an uproar in the cyber world when the release date of the game, March 4, 2017, was spotted in the website, along with the Amiibo figures.

According to reports, the exact date found in the website is "4/3/2017." Following the day-month-year format in Europe, this means that the game will be released on March 4, 2017; however, various reports also suggest that the date was posted accidentally, thus, fans are advised not to heed on it or take it seriously.

Apparently, fans were quick to assume that Nintendo will remain true to its trend that Amiibo characters is released along with the game itself. On the contrary, there are also others who think that the said date is unreliable, since it has been settled that the game will be released along with Nintendo's console, NX.

In fact, "Breath of the Wild" serves as Nintendo NX's launch title, therefore, it is only apt that they will be released together. Unfortunately, there are also rumors that the target launch of the NX in 2017 is being reconsidered, which may result to the delay of its release. Moreover, Nintendo was accordingly accustomed to releasing their games every Friday and not any other day, and unfortunately, March 4, 2017 is a Saturday.

Rumors also suggest that the date might only be for the Amiibo figures. Take note that not all Amiibo figures comes out simultaneously with the game itself, so there is a high possibility that such may be the case here. For those uninitiated, Amiibos are released as a way for gamers to have additional bonus, such as new maps, in-game items and other characters. In the game, they are composed of the game's main character Link as an archer, a rider, and a Guardian.

Nevertheless, fans are hopeful that the game will really be released sooner since there are various updates and developments posted.
