Yesterday, a rumor surfaced that Twilight Princess was going to receive a 3D remake, much like Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask before it. This rumor has since been proven to be false.
The rumor began when a Nintendo 3DS user received a StreetPass with a Mii who had been “playing” the fake remake. This sent the internet ablaze with questions and speculation. In the end, however, it was just a hoax; the user in question had in fact hacked their 3DS, allowing them to use any combination of images and text for their most recently played game.
This actually became a pretty large problem at the Symphony of the Goddesses in Germany, as many users StreetPassed with the hacked system. Nintendo Everything is reporting that every single person who received the hacked user’s Mii and attempts to access the Twilight Princess eShop page on the 3DS will be banned from online services.
If you went to the Symphony of the Goddesses and managed to StreetPass this individual, the best course of action would be to delete the Mii from your system. Those who are now banned from online access should contact Nintendo in order to rectify the situation.
There are also some reports being thrown around that those who are banned are being banned for use of flashcards. The situation isn’t completely clear, but the safe bet is to delete the Mii from your Mii Plaza!
If you attended the Symphony in Germany, did you manage to StreetPass this individual?
