Rumor: Zelda: Breath of the Wild launches March in North America and Japan, unclear in Europe

Tom Phillips of Eurogamer has come forward with another report on the Switch, following numerous reports of his that turned out to be correct. Today, he talked about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s release date – or release dates, rather. According to his sources, Breath of the Wild will launch in March in both North America and Japan, but the situation in Europe is still unclear. Supposedly, Nintendo of Europe was operating under the assumption that the game would not launch in March alongside the Switch itself and was pushing for a long period of localisation and quality assurance.
However, plans supposedly changed at some point during the last couple of months, and the higher-ups in at Nintendo in Japan wanted to make the Switch launch lineup as strong as possible, and thus decided to make Breath of the Wild a launch title in both North America and Japan.
Latest Zelda: Breath of the Wild screenshot may point to Beedle’s inclusion in the game
Nintendo released yet another Zelda: Breath of the Wild screenshot today, and the folks over at GameXplain noticed something interesting about the image. In the lower left hand corner, a character is shown that looks a whole lot like Beedle.
For one thing, the bag takes on the resemblance of an actual beetle. If that wasn’t enough, the character takes on a similar appearance as Beedle himself from past entries in the series with the color of his hair, shorts, and shoes. The art on the character’s shorts seems similar as well.
Beedle is a merchant in several of the Zelda games, such as Wind Waker and Skyward Sword. It would make sense for him to serve a similar role in Breath of the Wild.
Rumor: Zelda: Breath of the Wild set for North American Switch launch in March
Update: Bumped to the top. Emily Rogers also now says that Zelda: Breath of the Wild should be expected in March in North America.
Original: Laura Kate Dale, a person who has been leading the Switch rumor mill even before Nintendo properly announced the system, now claims that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild is due out in March. Finalized materials are beginning to surface, which is what Dale is partially basing her speculation on.
We did hear before as part of one rumor that Breath of the Wild may not be ready until the summer / June. However, Dale is now certain that the Switch version will be out in just a couple of months. She’s unclear what the status of the Wii U version is at the moment in terms of a release window. As for the conflicting reports, a European delay or Wii U delay could potentially be involved.
Meanwhile, Dale has also heard that print magazines have wrapped up their upcoming issues focusing on Switch. That means “certain info can now be better fact checked.”
