To paraphrase our new favorite companion: “I calculate a 5% possibility these rumors are true.” So please keep that in mind as you read further.
ScrewAttack noticed a very interesting image over at 4chan: an image which seems to point towards twin Zelda 3DS games, possibly dual-released like the Oracles games. The image depicts two Zelda titles with the kanji subtitles translating to “Fire Prophecy” and “Ice Prophecy” respectively.
Could these games be real? Hit the jump to read our take.
While the image looks a bit generic, and the titles certainly aren’t as evocative as Nintendo usually conjures up, it is interesting to note that back in early November Eiji Aonuma was quoted as saying:
“We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don’t think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles released on DS. We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous consoles.”
ScrewAttack says that shortly after Mr. Aonuma’s quote came out, IGN editorial team member Sam Claiborn is quoted as saying:
“Nintendo is working on at least two other Zelda games right now, and I can’t wait to see them.”
Originally thought to be a reference to a console game and a handheld each, in light of this rumor it is possible it was referring to these twin games.
Again, this is simply a rumor at this time, and not even a likely one at that. But we will keep you posted on any further developments as we become aware of them.
