Best Buy leaks The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Prime Trilogy and Persona 5 for the Switch

Many games leaks come to us through retail systems, which either jump the gun or are trawled for information that might be worthwhile. It seems to have happened again, with retailer Best Buy’s internal system having leaked a trio of impending Switch games. Those games are The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Prime Trilogy and Persona 5.

Gemtasu has a breakdown of each of the listed games:

  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was originally released for Super Nintendo in 1991 and was ported to Game Boy Advance in 2002. A Virtual Console version was released for Wii U in January 2014 and New 3DS in April 2016. That said, this listing is probably the strangest of the batch, being that Nintendo recently announced a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Switch.
  • Metroid Prime Trilogy has been rumored for Switch in the past, with Game Informer’s Imran Khan saying in January that development on the collection is “long done” and that it was originally “supposed to be announced [in December 2018].”
  • Persona 5 has been rumored for Switch ever since the announcement of Persona 5 protagonist Joker coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a downloadable content character. Best Buy also recently leaked the render for Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Earlier today, Atlus opened a teaser website for a “Persona 5 S,” which will be revealed on April 25.

Neither Metroid Prime Trilogy or Persona 5 are too surprising, given that they’ve been rumoured for the system in the past. The curious entry here is The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. That delightful gem of a game was the first Zelda game for Nintendo’s SNES, but it’s an oddity given that a new Zelda game has already been announced for the Switch, being the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Hopefully it’s a remake in the same vein.

I am, however, most excited to play through the Metroid Prime Trilogy again, especially if it’s been updated to allow for more modernised control.
