Metroid Prime Trilogy, A Link to the Past and Wind Waker Rumoured For The Switch

It could be a great time to be a Nintendo Switch owner if the latest leaks are to be believed, as it looks like a butt-tonne of amazing games are about to get ported onto the handheld console.

There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s get to it but as always: take the rumours with a big ol’ pinch of salt.

A well-known gaming leaker named Wario64 managed to snag some screenshots supposedly captured by a Best Buy employee. The snaps show ’employee terminal listings,’ a.k.a Best Buy’s internal employees-only system.

The images show Persona 5, Metroid Prime Trilogy and The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past.

Wario64 confirmed with their sources that the images were real, but didn’t publicise the source, so don’t take it as gospel truth just yet.

In a later tweet, Wario64 confirmed the listing had been removed, but added it’s of no significance at the moment. Guess we’ll wait for a Nintendo Direct then…

Those aren’t the only games slated for a Switch release though, as other Zelda classics, Twilight Princess and Wind Waker have also seen some pretty exciting rumours.

A Twitter user named Stealth commented on the Best Buy leaks, saying: “I don’t know what the Best Buy ‘Link To The Past’ listing is but according to a few sources, Twilight Princess HD and Wind Waker HD are both coming to the Switch eShop. Might be related to the Best Buy listing, might not. This is just a rumor so grains of salt and all that.”

They then went on to add: “The primary source for this is someone who told me about over 15 games WAY earlier than when they were announced so I was confident enough to post it but it really is a rumor until official.”

What do you think? Real or fake? Personally I would love nothing more than these Zelda games on the Switch. Make it happen, Nintendo!
