alright Best Buy is wild. Now there's a listing for THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: A LINK TO THE PAST for Switch. Not making any of this up.— Wario64 (@Wario64) April 3, 2019
Link's Awakening is already on Best Buy's system so it's not a mistake pic.twitter.com/5SjguAwz5I
Twitter user @Wario64 recently put out a tweet showing that The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past had apparently been found on Best Buy’s employee system. Information for Metroid Prime Trilogy and Persona 5 on the Switch were also found.
Right now, all of this is still only a rumor, though Link’s Awakening is already on the retailer’s system, suggesting some validity for these findings. The listing of Metroid Prime Trilogy could be an important indicator of the validity here, since that game has been circling the rumor mill for months. Likewise, dataminers have found some evidence that SNES games could be coming to Nintendo Switch Online, perhaps indicating plans to add A Link to the Past to the service.
Until any official word is given by Nintendo, however, it is important to take these “leaks” with a grain of salt.
What do you make of these recent discoveries? Do you think A Link to the Past is on its way to Switch? Share your thoughts in the comments.
