It has been rumored since the reveal of Joker in Smash Bros Ultimate and according to a Best Buy leak, its actually happening.
The above image, provided by Twitter user "Mystic", is of a Best Buy sales terminal which very clearly states that Persona 5 is headed to the Nintendo Switch. You can't order it just yet, but its there.
When asked of the possibility of Persona 5 getting a Switch release, former President of Nintendo of America, and total bad-ass, Reggie Fils-Aime was quoted as saying "I cannot comment on that".
A side note, there is currently a countdown that reads 4.25 on the official Persona web site, which you can view here. We can assume it's Persona related, as it is the Persona site, we just don't know what it is. Maybe this is the announcement for P5 on Switch?
Thats not all.
Mystic also shows that both Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Metroid Prime Trilogy is also getting released.
Metroid Prime Trilogy was mentioned once before, by a Swedish retail store a few months back. It was also leaked in March that Link's Awakening might not be the only Zelda title being released this year, with it rumored to be a "smaller eshop title coming out before Link's Awakening".
As I said before, I totally see a Prime Trilogy coming out for the Switch, as a "sorry for messing up Prime 4" kind of thing. I do not see Link to the Past being a "smaller eshop title" as that game was huge and wouldn't just fly under the radar like that.
What do you guys think? Do you want Persona 5 for the Switch? Let us know in the comments below.
And as always, this has been James with Game Fix. Game on everybody!
