It feels like an age since the wonderful The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds landed on the 3DS. Back in 2013 the 3DS was really on a roll and we were spoilt for choice, but this sequel to the classic SNES The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past really hit the mark and we promptly awarded it 10/10 in our review at the time.
Reddit users recently allowed their imaginations to get the better of them when it was revealed that Nintendo PR reps have been contacting journalists and requesting permission to re-quote reviews of A Link Between Worlds:

We did think it was a bit strange when we got this request from PR ourselves, as for some time A Link Between Worlds has been available as a budget Selects release in Europe. Of course, the first thing which comes to mind is “could a Switch port of this wonderful game be in the works?”
Alas however, in North America the game hasn’t had a Selects release. It looks likely that a Selects release will be announced soon by Nintendo of America, which will be welcome news for 3DS owners who haven’t yet picked up this amazing game yet – and perhaps answers why Nintendo PR is asking for fresh review quotes.
