The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Persona 5 may be coming to the Nintendo Switch, according a series of leaks that are bound to excite owners of the console. The Legend of Zelda and Metroid Prime are two of the most iconic game series on Nintendo consoles and A Link to the Past and Metroid Prime Trilogy have been universally acclaimed. Persona 5 is one of the best role-playing games released this generation. If these leaks are true, and if these games are going to release sometime soon, then Nintendo Switch fans have a lot of amazing games to look forward to.
These leaks were spotted by Twitter users @MysticDistance and @Wario64, compiled in a thread at ResetEra. These leaks come via American retail chain Best Buy's employee terminals, from where @MysticDistance shared a listing for Persona 5 for Nintendo Switch. Following this @Wario64 spotted The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Metroid Prime Trilogy listed on the Best Buy employees' portal. We cannot confirm the authenticity of these leaks.
A Link to the Past was first released on the SNES in 1991 in Japan and a year later in North America and Europe. Metroid Prime Trilogy was first released as a compilation for the Nintendo Wii in 2009. Metroid Prime 4 had been announced for Nintendo Switch in 2017, but its development hit a snag and is being restarted from scratch. If Metroid Prime Trilogy is coming to Nintendo Switch then fans of the series will have a chance to relive the original three games on Switch while they wait for Metroid Prime 4.
Meanwhile, Persona 5 is one of the few games to receive a 10/10 rating from Gadgets 360, and its turn-based combat and heavy focus on story makes it ideal for the Nintendo Switch. If these leaks are true, it won't be too far fetched to expect a Nintendo Direct where we hear more about these games.
