After review and conference by Correspondents Bryan Melville and Troy Roberts, we have come to the conclusion that this is NOT from the new ZELDA title. Rather, we believe this screen to be from SUPER SMASH BROS. MELEE. We'll keep you updated on further progress.

FGN Online has posted a possible screenshot of the new GAMECUBE LEGEND OF ZELDA game.


While this picture isn't from Nintendo, it looks absolutely incredible. The screen was delivered anonymously to FGN Online late last night. Is the screen real, or is it an elaborate hoax? We're not entirely sure ourselves.


Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto has commented that the new ZELDA game would be shown at this year's SPACEWORLD show. It is possible that a Japanese publication received this image and someone leaked it before the show. Only time will tell if that is the case. SPACEWORLD kicks off on August 24th.
