    Every so often, we see major retailers like Walmart or Amazon slip up and post some product listings that they never meant to, such as when Walmart Canada leaked Bethesda's Rage 2, and many more upcoming titles. Of course, not everything always turns out to be real, so while the proposition of these three games, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Persona 5, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past all being on the Nintendo Switch might be exciting, it's imperative to take this with a grain of salt until we see an actual confirmation during E3 or a Nintendo Direct.

    As for the details of this "leak", Best Buy's CoreBlue system had four listings added to it today, with the aforementioned titles being included alongside Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S - Definitive Edition, a game that we certainly know exists. While the initial source was thought to be sketchy at best, Wario64, a reputable source for news, has verified that the leaks are indeed from Best Buy's internal systems.

    SKU 6255388 is for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, for the Nintendo Switch, SKU 6255386 is for Persona 5, for the Nintendo Switch, and lastly, SKU 3255384 is Metroid Prime Trilogy, for yes, the Nintendo Switch.

    "major retailers like Walmart or Amazon slip up and post some product listings that they never meant to"

    It's a free commercial for them, and Nintendo really doesn't have the power or position to punish them.

    If this isn't total BS, I'm guessing that's actually supposed to be Link's Awakening. I can't imagine them having a version of LttP that is worth a physical release ready to go right after having announced Link's Awakening.

    Legend of Zelda is the only one I played out of these listings. What is a SNES game doing on switch from best buy? :blink:

    no way there's a lttp remake happening, which leads me to believe this is fake.

    I hope Metroid Prime Trilogy re add the missing things like effects they removed from the Wii Trilogy... And support for both GameCube controls and motion controls!
