Best Buy internal system lists The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Persona 5 for Switch [Update]

New Switch announcements due soon?

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Persona 5

Best Buy’s internal CoreBlue system has listed The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Persona 5 for Switch.

News first broke when Twitter user MysticDistance posted an Imgur link of screenshots taken from a “Persona 5 – Nintendo Switch” listing in Best Buy’s CoreBlue system.

Twitter user Wario64, who regularly tweets video game-related deals, was able to confirm the listing is in the CoreBlue system.

Wario64 soon followed up with updates revealing that both Metroid Prime Trilogy and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past are listed.

The SKUs for all three titles are within close range of each other, only being a few numbers off, meaning that they were likely all added to the system one after the other. One of the in-between SKUs is Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S – Definitive Edition.

Here is a break down of each product listing:

  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was originally released for Super Nintendo in 1991 and was ported to Game Boy Advance in 2002. A Virtual Console version was released for Wii U in January 2014 and New 3DS in April 2016. That said, this listing is probably the strangest of the batch, being that Nintendo recently announced a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Switch.
  • Metroid Prime Trilogy has been rumored for Switch in the past, with Game Informer’s Imran Khan saying in January that development on the collection is “long done” and that it was originally “supposed to be announced [in December 2018].”
  • Persona 5 has been rumored for Switch ever since the announcement of Persona 5 protagonist Joker coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a downloadable content character. Best Buy also recently leaked the render for Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Earlier today, Atlus opened a teaser website for a “Persona 5 S,” which will be revealed on April 25.

Gematsu has reached out to Best Buy for comment and is awaiting a response.

Update 04/03/19 at 2:35 p.m.: Wal-Mart has pulled the three game listings from the internal system.
