The sumo/wrestling arena that was mentioned is the place that the Persona concert is taking place. It has no correction with the fighting game 

That's a good point. It could be referring to the concert.
However I do think there's a correlation between that arena and the Persona fighting game. If you look at my post above, in the Persona 4 Arena game they are fighting in an arena similar to the one in question here, and in the game they call it the P1 Climax.
This is a very obvious reference to the actual real life pro wrestling finals tournament called G1 Climax, which occurs annually in, you guessed it, the Kokugikan stadium.

If this turns out to be just a rumor I'm gonna be pissed. -_-

It IS labelled as just a "rumour" =)

Although, I would call it a lie based on speculation.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

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. 

I agree that it could be published by Nintendo. But about the extra content point you raised with DQ XI as an example, (aside from the 3DS gameplay) that was probably done because the Switch version comes out over 2 years after the original PS4 release in Japan.
The enhanced version of Persona 5 should release on all systems fairly simultaneously, if it's a multi platform title. If they differ from each other in any significant way, I don't think it would be that one version has more meaningful extra content than the other.

Well yeah, I was just giving a scenario to relate to more than anything. It could be with or without extra content, the same way DQXI has and DQB2 doesn't. They could have just as easily released the vanilla DQXI on Switch. The Switch version of P5 would also release many years after the PS3 and PS4 versions. But like you said, I also don't think the content would be super meaningful. Maybe cross over costumes or something along those lines. Maybe something that ties in with Smash or something. I don't think it'll be anything along P5R.

Yeah, but since the Switch version would still release simultaneously with the second PS4 release, they'd be asking fans to buy a game (and many for the second time) where they've deliberately removed significant extra content from the PS4 version. And that wouldn't go over well with fans, because there would be no proper reason for that.
The reason and excuse for extra content added to late ports is usually the passing of time. That content didn't exist last year when the original game was released, so that's why it wasn't there. Like Resident Evil 4 for PS2, which added Ada Wong's Story mode, which wasn't on the original Gamecube version.

Dragon Quest XI is also a bit of a special case since they've had Nintendo owners wait since the announcement in 2016 that it would be coming to Switch, while they saw it release on PS4 in early 2017. And they're still waiting. So the extra functions, in particular the 3DS mode which is something that would be unique for the Switch version regardless, can be seen as both an incentive for people to double dip, and as a bit of an apology for the long wait.
When Persona 5 was delayed in the west, they gave us dual audio for free, as an apology.

There could very well be some Nintendo themed differences for the Switch version, like costumes. Or some connectivity to Joker in Smash. But I wouldn't expect much outside of that to the point where it warrants a different name than the PS4 version.
But Nintendo could be publishing it for those, or several other reasons.

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.

This is the only way i'll replay that game. I recently beat that game (after years of putting it off) and it's my most disliked zelda yet. a 3D version would be ok though.



only thing that confuses me is the link to the past listing, if it was just their little monthly VC like releases, it wouldnt have its own best buy listing

if it was just a preorder bonus for links awakening, it wouldnt have its own best buy listing either

I'm banking that its just a mistake somehow by bestbuy themselves

Same, but the other listings sound good.
