Several signs point at the new Mario Maker rumor being fake with one big aspect being that the rumored image uses very familiar Nintendo art.
A rumor can be fabricated? I was unaware of such a thing.
Don't most hand models hands look mostly alike? And why (if it is fake) do people go to such great lengths to try and fool gamers about E3?
That hand is flat out indentical with same angle and stylus, I am with whoever wrote this it is going to be fake
Looks so real to be honest...
sure fooled me (if fake)...
"That isn’t the end of it. The Animal Crossing Villager looks like re-used art from old Smash Bros marketing materials too. The likelihood that Nintendo chose to re-use several pieces of old art for such a big event seems highly unlikely to me." Except, hey. Smash Brothers is honestly their BIGGEST title at the show that we know of, even to the point of having a tournament in LA at the same time. Of COURSE they'll use Smash promotional materials. Also, like Moonman said before: They're hand models. Might even be the same asset, even one that is honestly something that most people wouldn't care about if reused. All this article is to me is someone trying to stir the pot for views more than anything.
I'm inclined to think i might be real. Nintendo reuse assets all the time. Especially in their promotional stuff,
It looks just a little bit too real, on second look, to be a fake. I mean, who would go to the trouble of photoshopping so many small details into this for the sake of creating a false rumor? What sane tech-savvy gamer would waste time on that when there are games they could be playing instead? I think it's the real deal, and it'll certainly be a welcome addition to the lineup of either of Nintendo's systems.
It's not that it's photoshopped but that someone with access to a similar sort of space has staged this shot. It does seem like a lot of effort just to spread a rumor, but then again if you wanted to have people believe you this would be the best way to do it.
Considering Nintendo already has a 90 min q&a for a 3ds title, I'd say this is real. What other game would need so much q&a?
nobody is that good at photoshop....that is a pic from the actual comference
I don't see why anyone would want to make a game like this up? Hardly anything to get excited about. Rumors generally circulate about Zeldas/Metroids/Starfoxs etc
Why wouldn't Villager's Super Smash Bros. artwork be used for a Super Smash Bros. ad?
