Metroid

Yesterday brought with it a very juicy and - importantly - believable rumour courtesy of US retailer Best Buy. If you missed it, an internal employee terminal suggested that Persona 5, Metroid Prime Trilogy and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past are all on the way to Switch.

There have been rumblings about Metroid and Persona going around for a while, so we wouldn't be surprised to see those be officially revealed at some point soon, but A Link to the Past? Interesting.

Anyway, in response to this information and the related photographs of the system's listings spreading around the internet like wildfire yesterday, it would appear that Best Buy has now removed the products from view. According to @Wario64, the games have been pulled from the store's internal system, but further digging reveals that they are still present in the retailer's RSS.

While this is purely speculation, it would certainly make sense that this is simply a cover-up, with Best Buy doing the only thing it can to stop the rumours spreading. We see no reason for Best Buy to have listings for games that don't exist, and it wouldn't be surprising if Nintendo itself swooped in to try and deal with the situation, asking for their removal. Perhaps these games were intended for an E3 reveal?

Twitter users replying to Wario64's comments agree.

As always, we'd urge you to remember that none of the titles mentioned have been officially confirmed as of yet. While the signs do seem promising, treat this as a simple rumour until we hear more. Naturally, we'll let you know if any of these games do get officially announced.

Do you think this was a simple slip-up? Do you expect the games to be revealed soon? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
