According to G4TV, news has surfaced about a new Zelda game called “Zelda Universe”. That’s… funny. And confusing. The game appeared on a rating by the ESRB and by the details of it, this might be the 25th anniversary surprise Nintendo promised us at the Game Developers’ Conference earlier this year.

Zelda Universe is rated E for Everyone which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. What is interesting though is that this game is not listed for any particular Nintendo console but rather the platform is listed as “online”. Already fanboys and fangirls alike are jumping with joy, but don’t hold your breath for a MMORPG epic like World of Warcraft. But whatever this turns out to be, we’re sure excited to find out more about it, and why it’s using our name.

We will most likely see Zelda Universe announced at E3 on June 7th, and Zelda Universe will have all the latest updates on… Zelda Universe. Still weird.

UPDATE: It seems as though this is a false alarm; the ESRB rating was filed in 2001 and pertains to Nintendo’s official website for The Legend of Zelda, also called Zelda Universe (though we’d like to think we’re the better of the two). So there’s no game coming out with our name on it. Sorry, folks!

    lol. I knew about that being on there. Anyway, I can definitely tell that the new server is faster. Keep it up, guys!

  • Would never want a Zelda mmorpg anyway, it'd be a disgrace.

    • It wouldn't be that bad. Think about it. What if it was an open world Zelda game and there was all the same Zelda formulas to it except that it was multiplayer? And then you could go to a blacksmith and then download new add-on content like a new dungeon or item. Anyways it isn't real if you look at the comment rjthomson made.

    I don't really see how a Zelda MMORPG would work in the first place. There's Link, who saves Hyrule, and… err… Zelda who does… stuff… in some games… it's not really the type of game where it would fit into the story where you could have millions of heroes running around to save the world simply put.

  • veeronic

    I kinda figured that was the case given how the rating had "PRODUCTS RANGE" written above it.

      … Huh. That is funny.

  • Josiahinnc

    Zelda online would suck

    • Majin Kai

      Please elaborate.

      I believe it would work if it kept the same combat system, but made Hyrule a much, much larger. Por ejemplo, it would take around 30 minutes to an hour to get from Hyrule field to Hyrule castle, and there would be tons of enemy camps, tribes/what have you.

      Would work better as a local-LAN type game. Survival genre, perhaps?

      • Josiahinnc

        it might be fun to play but it would change The Legend of Zelda as a series for the worse.

  • ganonlord

    I highly doubt Nintendo would ever do something like this, anyway. When it comes to comparing this site to the actual, all of the fan sites are better than it. Didn't they get the name from here in the first place?

    • cloverplayer

      and why the heck would they name an actual zelda game "zelda universe?"
      I guess it would work for an online game, but nintendo would never do online zelda. (or would they? -_-)

  • linkdude101

    Wow, you idiots believed this? Nintendo WILL NEVER make an online game. Get over it.

  • mikeypizzalover

    Oh. I saw thuis over at My Nintendo news awhile ago. I thought it would incorporate elements from all the zelda games. Cd-i games do not count, remember.

    The folowing statement is a lie. The previous statement tells the truth.

    Lol, fail. SOMEONE'S FILED A PATENT FOR SOME KIND OF ELECTRIC LIGHT! *edit* – Oh wait, that was 1879…
