Yes, it turns out that the Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door 3D leak which went viral is fake. It’s not too surprising, but it did lead to plenty of speculation which kept some people entertained. The leak was the result of Photoshop and Adobe Premiere. Oh well, guess we will have to keep on dreaming.
Thanks, Kallum and Scott
Some people were overjoyed by the news and some were dismayed at the possibility of Rayman joining the Super Smash Bros roster. Well it all turned out to be an elaborate fake as the person behind it has come forward and revealed how he created it. So yeah, you can now breathe a sigh of relief, as Rayman won’t be coming to Super Smash Bros on the Wii U.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
It’s not April 1st yet, but Couch Jockeyz believe that they have insider information which suggests that Microsoft exclusive TitanFall from EA is coming to the Wii U. The publication believes that the acclaimed online first person shooter is coming to Wii U at the same time as the Xbox 360 version due to Nintendo paying a substantial amount of money to EA. The site claims EA is to make an announcement at the end of the month. I wouldn’t hold your breath.
Thanks Retrogaminglord and Llazy77
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
