Update: Best Buy has pulled the listings for the below games from their system. This makes sense; even if the listings are legit, Best Buy probably doesn't want them all over the Internet if Nintendo hasn't announced things officially yet. Original story follows below.

Original story: A leak coming from Best Buy's internal online system could have revealed some new Nintendo Switch listings.

According to the leak, Persona 5 is headed to Switch soon, which would make some sense given the recent update to the Persona 5 S website. If the S stands for Switch - so Persona 5 Switch - it would also make a lot more sense of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Joker DLC. The Best Buy listing doesn't give a release date for the game. All that's there right now is info for Best Buy staff and a price of $59.99.

It's not all Persona, though. The leak also contains info on an upcoming version of Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch. Again, this would make sense. Nintendo recently rebooted development on Metroid Prime 4, so placating fans with a port of the original three games stands to reason. No release date on this one either, and no provisional price. Reports back in January claimed that Nintendo was working on a Switch version of the trilogy, so this Best Buy leak would seem to confirm that. Metroid Prime Trilogy originally appeared on the Nintendo Wii (although the first two games were GameCube titles) and featured motion controls. We're not sure whether the Switch version will restore the original dual-analog controls or keep a version of the Wii ones.


Perhaps the juiciest part of the Best Buy leak is the listing for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. As Twitter user Wario64 points out, the upcoming Link's Awakening remake is already on Best Buy's system so this isn't a mistaken name. Whether this points to a full remake of 1991 classic or a simple port remains to be seen. If it's the latter, that would make A Link to the Past the first SNES title available on Nintendo Switch. If it's the former, then Zelda fans should be getting very excited indeed. This isn't the first time we've heard about a potential second Zelda title in 2019. We'll have more news for you on this when we get it.

Are you excited for these games on Switch (provided the leak is legit)? Let us know in the comments below!
