Best Buy leak Metroid Prime Trilogy/Persona 5 Switch listing

Best Buy has accidentally leaked through listings numerous unannounced Nintendo Switch titles

Game retailers are known for their accidental leaks of unannounced games coming to certain platforms through their website listings, and now we have a few more. This time round Nintendo Switch titles have taken the spotlight.

Supposed leaks of Best Buy's internal staff-only data base has showcased three unannounced Nintendo Switch titles. According to the above images from Wario64 - a very well known leaker of game information - the Metroid Prime Trilogy, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Persona 5 are heading over to the Nintendo Switch. Here is a imgur folder of all the leaked images.

If you didn't know, Persona 5's 'Joker' is heading over to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which could be a big enough reason for Nintendo to bring his whole game over to the Switch. The listing for Zelda is quite puzzling, as Best Buy has not mistaken A Link to the Past for the announced remake of Link's Awakening, as there is a separate listing for Awakening also in the stores database. The Metroid Prime Trilogy listing could very well be true as Nintendo did delay Metroid Prime 4 for further development time, perhaps a remake of the older games will be enough to tie over Metroid fans until Metroid Prime 4 is ready?

As always with store listings, please remember that employees do create these listings in their data bases to get ahead of a potential release a game franchise. Employee's, just like the rest of us humans are subject to error, and/or could just be guessing at what the future holds for specific franchises. That being said, come at that post and the Switch game listings with a healthy amount of diligence and skepticism.
