Try as Nintendo might to stop potential leaks, a retailer could always slip up and drop early details on accident. Such was the case this morning before the Direct with Amazon Japan, this time concerning The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake coming to the Switch.

The Japanese branch of the online retail giant put up a listing for Zelda no Densetsu: Yume o Miru Shima e on their site earlier today. Alas, they may have dropped the game’s release date early; if accurate, then the game will indeed launch on September 20 for the region. Amazon Japan since deleted the listing for Link’s Awakening altogether.

Whether that will be the exact date worldwide or not will be made clear during Nintendo’s E3 presentation later today. The wait is almost over for all sorts of reveals concerning Nintendo’s releases over the next few months!

What do you hope to see about Link’s Awakening in today’s Direct? Share your thoughts with us below.
