On Sept. 17, Reddit user DalekCydonia posted the alleged release date for the Amiibo figures. The forum member wrote "[LEAK] Release date of BoTW AND NX accidentally leaked by French Nintendo!!! On March 4th 2017!!!" Below the text is an Amiibo figure labelled "Link (archer)" and underneath is the aforementioned date.

Aside from Link (archer), another Amiibo set to be released is Link (Rider), which is also slated for a March 4, 2017 release. As indicated on Game Spot, other figures include Lucina, Light-Blu Yarn Yoshi, and Olimar, which were released on April 24, 2015, June 24, 2015, and July 17, 2015, respectively.

According to Game Spot, the majority of the Amiibo figures were released on a Friday while the leaked date is a Saturday.
