Recent musings within the video game industry have been whispering about the possibility of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild not being a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. Thanks to a slip-up on Target’s online retail storefront, it seem likely that the game will be released quite a while after the Switch.
Earlier today, Target had Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild listed for release on June 13th, 2016. That date has since been removed from their website.
Nintendo has yet to announce the official release date for both their newest console, the Switch, or the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Rumors and speculation have listed the Switch for release sometime in March of 2017, putting it much earlier than the Target release date for Breath of the Wild. So it is looking more and more unlikely that Breath of the Wild will be the first game we play on the Switch. Nintendo has announced that they will provide more technical information as well as the official release date for the Switch in Q1 2017, so tune-in again around that time.
