As we predicted, the rumor was quickly dispelled. You won’t be seeing The Legend of Zelda: Fire Prophecy nor The Legend of Zelda: Ice Prophecy on your 3DS anytime soon (and with titles like those, thank heavens).
GlitterBerri, renown for her fan translations of Hyrule Historia and other Japanese-only Zelda goodies, had a look at the supposed Zelda titles image and noticed some very interesting errors, which she just shared with us.
“The problems with the titles are…
-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.”
Of course, with the image originating from 4chan, the fact that the titles were nowhere near as evocative as those Nintendo usually dreams up, and the fact the image itself was more generic than a typical Zelda logo, we had our doubts.
So with this finally cleared up, what are you hoping the real 3DS game will be like? Let us know in the comments below.
