The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D was on the GAME and Gamestation websites at around 10:00am today, but was then removed by 10:30am. Unfortunately, I didn't get my pre-order in as I am currently saving for the Wii U. Will you be buying it?

LOL! What a hoax! I made this on Powerpoint yesterday morning after hearing about Nintendo Direct and it took me no more than 30 minutes! I can't believe you're all getting so pumped up about it! Lol!

You could say some of us are gullible, but actually we just trusted that somebody wouldn't be so sad to whip up a fake image and try and trick everybody with it. I mean, what was the point? Sure it was a pretty good image but I don't see why you had to make a whole thread about it.
So there goes my trust on your posts.

Wow, you made it in powerpoint? In Chrome (and I'm guessing in most browsers), it's a simple case of right clicking, inspect element, then fiddling with the code to change the title text. Like my one.

Not a good hoax anyway, this game is as good as confirmed anyway.

After you created a thread in order to insult MartinIsAwesome, you have pretty much just shot any chance of being respected in the head. I expect you'll either be banned before the end of the year, or become worse than Bubbleboy.

If/when MM3D comes to fruition, this is how I imagine it'll be. Grezzo did OoT3D and MM reused a lot of the assets from OoT so most of the work would already be done, so to speak.

Wasn't announced today though, chances are GAME were just speculating or test page or something

I have to admit, I find it a bit funny that just one random guy on a forum fooled half the internet and gaming news sites.

On the other hand, considering the main coverage came from Zelda Informer... yeah, they're not exactly difficult people to 'trick', always loving a crazy and completely non believable rumour.

I should really read entire threads before posting >.>

Is the hoax thing legit? Because a lot of sites were reporting on this...

To be fair, the first sites reporting on it were Zelda Informer (who report everything called a rumour as if it were fact) and a blog called 'Fan Census', which sounds exactly like the kind of site to just report off things listed on internet forums.

Yeah, followed a reference trail which led back to here... Bother.

Who genuinely reports a forum post with no real references as news?!

A lot of people do apparently. Keep in mind that the old Donkey Kong 3D rumour was based on one single DK Vine topic and ended up on the likes of IGN. Not a fake by the person who posted it, but it was based on misinformation from EB Games.

And keep in mind the likes of Zelda Informer report on everything that may possibility be true, no matter how slim the possibility.

Donkey Kong 3D? News worthy

Rare being bought by Nintendo? News worthy

Metroid vs Star Fox crossover? News worthy

Saying a single blurry screenshot might show Banjo Kazooie 3DS? News worthy

They're not the only ones either, it seems gaming news outlets seem to take any old tidbit as if it's real.

Well like I always say (which only really applies to Nintendo).

If Nintendo hasn't said it, assume it's fake. I really ONLY tend to truly believe something, if and ONLY if it is announced by Nintendo. That means it has to be directly from Nintendo.

None of this "A *cough* trusted source *cough* who works *cough* close to Nintendo *cough*" lark.

Seriously the things people will believe. If I saw this topic first, you know what I'd do? I'd actually search for it on Google, and find out if it's true, not just believe a random forum post. I mean seriously, why would a random thread/topic in a forum be the first person to post this? It would have been already known and posted on more official pages, wouldn't it, or at least anywhere before some random guy.

This is how gullible people can be....

To be honest, I'm surprised no one (from magazine sites) managed to pick that up and start posting news about "OMG SMG 3DS?"
