Zelda: Breath of the Wild Coming in March Alongside Switch - Report

Breath of the Wild's release date for Europe, however, is unclear.


Contrary to an earlier report, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will launch in March 2017 for the Nintendo Switch, according to sources speaking to Eurogamer.

The highly anticipated RPG is coming out that month in North America and Japan, but a date for Europe has yet to be locked in, the site went on to claim. Nintendo will release the Switch console in March, so it's possible Breath of the Wild could be a launch title.
