Upcoming Zelda Amiibo May Have Slipped The NX Release Date

Nintendo’s still not talking about the NX’s release date, leaving fervent fans to do the digging. An amiibo listing on Nintendo of Europe’s website may be hinting at the upcoming release date of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as March 4th, 2107. Vicariously, the fans at an NX Reddit Group speculate this may be the release date of Nintendo’s upcoming NX platform. The listing has since been removed, leaving only screen caps (including the site’s Javascript) in it’s wake.

It should be noted that March 4th of 2017 would fall on a Saturday, whereas Nintendo’s usual releases fall on a Friday. March 4th of 2016 marked the release date of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, which could indicate this was merely a placeholder date. It’s swift removal from NoE’s website does enough to arouse suspicion.

Nintendo’s official word on the NX and Breath of the Wild has been “2017”, with their financials targeting a March 2017 window for the NX specifically. Both the NX and Wii U versions of Breath of the Wild are promised to launch simultaneously, with a line of four BotW amiibo in tandem. If rumors are to be believed, the NX is to be revealed sometime in September 2016, with time running out for the system’s reveal.
