Magmortar963, the official Nintendo magazine forum member who claimed that he spotted a listing for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D on UK retailer GAME’s website, has admitted it was all a hoax. Magmortar963 says he created the fake listing in Powerpoint just minutes after he heard about the Nintendo Direct which took place today. Here’s what he has to say.
LOL! What a hoax! I made this on Powerpoint yesterday morning after hearing about Nintendo Direct and it took me no more than 30 minutes! I can’t believe you’re all getting so pumped up about it! Lol!
An image has surfaced online from GameFAQS which apparently shows the title screen of the next Zelda game on the Nintendo 3DS. After the picture did the rounds many gamers deduced that it is a fake mock-up which was probably designed using the Colours application on the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo has said that they’re working on a Zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS, but no one knows for sure when we will see it.
Thanks to everyone that sent this in.
It has come to my attention that the image circulating the internet that supposedly was featured on Nintendo’s schedule via the official website is actually a fake. The screen grab showed that the Wii U had been renamed to the Wii Entertainment System when in fact the text had actually been doctored via Photoshop. The original image text translated through Google shows that the text originally read Mario Party 9. I’m sure we will see plenty more of these as E3 edges ever closer.
A freelance game translator over at GlitterBerri has confirmed that the two Zelda games that surfaced yesterday for the Nintendo 3DS are completely fake. The two games in question were titled The Legend of Zelda: Fire Prophecy and The Legend of Zelda: Ice Prophecy. The freelance games translator who speaks fluent Japanese claims the games are fake due to the following:
-Using を instead of の, which renders it completely nonsensical
-Writing “fire” in kanji and “ice” in katakana makes the titles inconsistent. They should either write both in katakana or both in kanji
The video that took Youtube by storm depicting a Nintendo employee showing off the features of the Nintendo Wii 2 to developers was actually an extremely successful student project. The students involved with the video were tasked with making a viral video that would generate at least 5,000 views. The video has actually been viewed an incredible 600,000 times since it arrived on Youtube a few days ago. Just goes to show that you can’t believe everything that you see, no matter how convincing it is.
Nintendo have claimed that recently posted Wii Hard Drive photo’s are 100% fakes.
This morning a photo surfaced online which claimed to be an official Wii storage device, Nintendo have since come out and commented on the said photo and claim it’s actually nothing more than a fake.
