For those who don’t know, we posted a bit of an odd rumor a few days ago referencing the potential name of Zelda U. Obviously, there is a high
chance that the information and image associated with the original
rumor are completely fake, but what we were handed today takes the cake.
An image has “leaked” that supposedly proves that the name “Shard of Nightmare” is real.
would agree with me. At the end of the day, the whole “angled, slightly
blurry” picture—supposedly to represent trying to sneak a picture of
something without someone noticing—is a rumor trend that started many
years ago. To be fair, it may have its roots in the Zelda Wii cell phone
pic leak that showed off Link and Fi… but we can’t be certain.
That is the only image remotely comparable to the hundreds of ones like
this that actually turned out to be legit, and it was taken and released
during E3. It also wasn’t angled, just blurry.
Whatever the case
may be, this is assuredly fake. My inbox has been flooded with this
image over and over, and the closest I can come to a source is some guy
from NintendoDOMiNATiON, who refuses to give up where he got it (likely some forum, somewhere on the internet).
Why post it you may ask? Because why not? It’s fun to to talk about, if
nothing else. Remember, not only this image, but the previous rumor
have a 99% chance of being fake. So for those that hated the name, fear
not. For those that liked it, sorry to burst that bubble. But hey, there
is always that 1% chance. Nintendo knows the real answer. See you on
