Forums - Nintendo Discussion - RUMOR: Persona 5, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Zelda: A Link to the Past in Best Buy's Employee Terminal

Twitter user @Wario64 has recently discovered pics of what appears to be Persona 5 in the employee's terminal system for Best Buy. While nothing is concrete, @Wario64 has confirmed these pics are legitimate, and these games are actually in Best Buy's system.

Shortly afterwards, images for listings of both Metroid Prime Trilogy and Zelda: A Link to the Past have shown up in Best Buy's system.



I'm a bit skeptical about Metroid and Zelda tbh. Persona I'm slightly more convinced considering everything revolving around it lately, as well as users such as Wario64 and MysticDistance backing up this information it seems, but take everything with a grain of salt.



Around the Network

I've already took it with a huge grain of salt. The fact that there's the presence of games like Metroid Prime Trilogy (anticipated since the VGA) and .... A Link to the Past ?! (How ??) makes it clear they're probably hoping on the wild speculations going on the internet.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

A Link to the Past? Maybe they mean Link's Awakening? ...Oh, nevermind Link's Awakening is already in their system. Huh, if they're doing a full 3D remake of A Link to the Past I'm down day 1.



And Persona 5 has just "Persona 5" as name, it makes little sense.

It should be Persona 5 Royal, or Persona 5 Something (since it's Persona 5 S). They most likely won't call it "Persona 5 Switch" (they like special names too much), at worst it would be "Persona 5 Royal Switch edition".

I'm still betting more on Persona 5 Sumo, new multiplatform fighting game.

This is just Best Buy trying to use the hype of the P5S reveal coming soon, they have no additional information (default release date, by Nintendo instead of Sega or Atlus?).

Well, it's in this case Published by Nintendo. So yeah, they'd be listed under publisher...

But uh yeah, if you think this is fake uh...keep the faith I guess.

And why would it be published by Nintendo? Persona 5 was published by Atlus and Deep Silver, Persona Q2 is published by Atlus. No reason to be published by Nintendo.

I don't have "faith", I would be happy to play an improved P5 on the go. But people just trust any baseless rumor without asking any questions, just because "they said S and S is Switch" .

Persona 4 U didn't release on the Wii U as far as I know, so let's wait to see what this S is. Since the website message mentions directly a sumo/wrestling arena, it's not unlikely to get a multiplatform fighting game, which we know is coming.

For me, a Switch announcement would be made during the Royal reveal, with PS4 and Switch versions properly announced.

Why would Dragon Quest XI be published by Nintendo? Why would Dragon Quest Builders be published by Nintendo? Despite those games were published by Square? I mean, this isn't anything new to the gaming world. Nintendo would publish the game to take on the cost that Atlus and Sega would have to eat otherwise. And of course this could mean that the Switch version gets things that Royal doesn't get. The same way Dragon Quest XI is getting things the PS4 version isn't getting and legally can't unless it's timed. 

But like I said, heh...just wait for the 25th. 

Edit: But you do raise a good point, P5 Arena was delayed so this could be the fighting game, so okay we'll wait for the 25th.

A Link to the Past is odd



Metriod and persona are all but confirmed at this point. But zelda is a weird one. I think someone probably typed the wrong one in the system. Probably suppose to be
Link's Awakening. It doesn't make sense for them to have 3 2d zelda games launching in 2019. And these games are probably leaks for a April direct, so nothing is gonna be 2020.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Dont care for Persona 5 on Switch but I'll be likely getting both Metroid Prime Trilogy and Zelda LttP (hopefully it has the GBA content unlocked via SP).
