Zelda: Breath of the Wild releasing in June 2017, according to major retailer

One major retailer is currently listing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for a June 2017 release.


Just a week after a report was published claiming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild wouldn’t launch in March 2017, a listing for the title has popped up which points towards a June release.

Target’s online store currently has the Wii U version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild available for pre-order, which it claims will be released on June 13, 2017. As of this writing, the listing is still live and still shows the apparent release date, which we’ve taken a screenshot of just in case Target takes it down.

Nintendo has been very quiet regarding the release date for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, although it has regularly released updates on the game that show off a number of new features. While we certainly appreciate learning more about the next game in the iconic The Legend of Zelda series, we think everyone would appreciate knowing when it's going to release a bit more.

      What's the success rate of retailer "leaks"? It's well established at this point that they frequently make shit up just to put a date in their system.

        When it's oddly specific, that lends some credence. When it's at the end of a financial quarter or end of the year, then it's 100% placeholder.

      Man, I really want this game to be as great as possible but these delays are killing me inside. This is a big blow to launch line up unless the rumors of a 3D Mario being day one are true.

      Interesting, so will the Switch version come out before the Wii U version? I am betting that is a: yes.

      Either way its a day one for me, can't wait.
