I'm making a thread for this specific rumor for multiple reason:
- Mediamarkt is a site that is usually reliable and has leaked in the past listings of real game
- It's from this same site that Assassin's Creed Collection for PS4/One/Switch possibly leaked and that one is pretty likely
- The Game Awards are in a few days and may be an explanation as to why it leaks
- Nintendo renewed the The Last Story trademark last night
- There's a placeholder box art and user took a screenshot with the view zoomed in

But there's also some critical points against it:
- You can't access the URL and it's impossible to determine if the page was taken down after being online for more than 17 hours of if it never existed in the first place
- There's no EAN number associated with the page
- The source is a reddit user that never posted before, so no way to tell if it's reliable.

So I'll let mods judge if it's worth discussing it or not.

Yeah usually I would say Media Markt is legit for leaks but unfortunately we have no idea if this listing ever existed. Could be a fake by a fan who saw the renewal of the trademark and the Assassin's Creed collection on Media Markt.

I was very surprised there wasn't a thread on this already that I could find. I figured maybe it was because Era has been acting up/down for maintenance.

That zoom picture is legit as fuck as I said in the other thread. I'm on the 'believe' side of things. There's a non-zoom picture as well out there.

also TLS2 development has been a rumor for 2 years now.

I was going to post it but decided against it because there isn't much in this rumor that can make it seem legit.

Reading the OP, this could be just a troll move from a user. So I'm going with fake for now.

But it's too late to not be hyped now. I hope this is real.

But... The Last Story II was basically an event in Terra Battle, wasn't it?

Would be shocked if true, but happy. That is under the assumption, that the banana peel sling is still in this.

Gonna call fake on this one.

When the Assassin's Creed Compilation and Bowmore listings surfaced, I scavenged through the PS4, Switch, and Xbox One pre-order listings---all of them---to see if there were any other standout oddities. This was not there. It's possible it could've showed up later, but the fact that the URL wasn't even shared is suspicious to me.

Also, might just be me, but that's not how MediaMarkt's zoom tool seems to work? Here's how it zooms for me:

It depends on the size of your monitor. The zoom-in view works exactly like in OP with my laptop.

That would be awesome but.... no, no, I don't want to be disappointed.
Can I pretend I never saw this thread?

Holy fucking shit if true. Couple that with Nintendo being used to bringing HD ports of games on Switch and maybe we'd get 1 too.

But on the other hand, I'm used to being disappointed.

Try out this title and you should be able to emulate the zoom behaviour of the "leak": https://www.mediamarkt.de/de/produc...lie-gesellschaft-nintendo-switch-2440633.html

Maybe it's just happening for Switch games?

I want to believe. If it happens i want a reunion with some of the old crew, especially with Syrenne.

I dont remember liking the first game on Wii

So here is hoping this one is more interesting if real
The original game was heavily flawed, but I liked the core of what it did and the main thrust of the story between Zael and Calista. A second game that improved on the first game's concepts and told a story with better pacing would be right up my alley.
