Last August, fans were delighted to find out that a collectible toy was made out of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" character, Link. At the time, there wasn't release date in sight for the awesome collectible toy. August's Gamescom brought about more buzz about the upcoming game, which had no release date in sight either. But the latest buzz says that the game is arriving in March 2017.

According to Gamesradar, Nintendo of Europe's amiibo website lists a March 4, 2017 release date for the highly anticipated "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." What's exciting about this is that these amiibo accessories are often released following the launch of the game, so "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is most likely arriving before or on March 4 next year.

For those of you who aren't familiar, amiibo accessories are little character figures that gamers must tap on the near-field communication (NFC) reader on the Wii U GamePad controller in order to obtain bonuses, unlock new adventures, add and add characters to the games. It seems that there will be several amiibo's for "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," as the website lists two versions of Link (as an archer and as a rider), and a Guardian.

In other "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" news, a new gameplay video has been released, this time featuring Link who seems to be turning domestic. The new gameplay video finds Link practicing his culinary skills, Gamespot reports. Fans will find Link cooking a variety of meals that include mushrooms and spicy peppers. Certain dishes also increase his maximum heart temporarily as he hums away in his kitchen. Like anyone who's new to the kitchen, though, some recipes go awry, resulting to a stinky pile of food.

"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is set for a 2017 release, and will arrive on the Wii U and the upcoming NX. The game was previously delayed a few times, but took centerstage during this year's Nintendo E3 showcase.
