The 19th installment of "The Legend of Zelda" franchise owned by Nintendo, "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," is one of the much-awaited games of 2017. Despite having very little material about the game, people are already saying that it will be a runner for game of the year award.

According to several reports, the upcoming "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" release date has been leaked. Originally, the game was announced to be released in 2017 with no exact date as to when. The leaked date of release is said to be mid of 2017.

Chitchats are leaning towards that "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" will not indeed make it in our hands early 2017. WCCF Tech said that the upcoming Nintendo Switch game will hit the market on June 13, 2017.

According to insiders who have claimed to have a source at or close to Nintendo, the reason behind the delay of the much awaited "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is due to localizing the entirety of the game from the script, NPC's and expeditions so that gamers from all around the world can experience and enjoy the game in their respective language.

Unfortunately, it seems that the process is taking longer than anticipated which may be completed in December. Finishing the localization three months before the release date which was originally in March, this would indicate that "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" will be released on time. To ensure the gamers an epic experience, a testing period of four to six months after localization will be done to remove glitches, bugs and to fine-tune the game will be done. If localization will be completed by December, the earliest release date we could expect will be in April.
