Nintendo dismisses rumour that new Zelda will use Rev controller

It's 'pure speculation', apparently.

Nintendo has dismissed claims that long awaited GameCube title The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be playable on the Revolution using the wacky old "freestyle" controller.

NGC magazine was responsible for starting the rumours with an article which read: "Twilight Princess will be playable on the forthcoming Revolution using the upcoming console's unique controller.

"When you insert the disc into your Revolution, you'll be given the option to use the Revolution's controller, with all the advantages this will bring."

But that's not the case, Nintendo told Eurogamer: "The article in the January edition of NGC Magazine is pure speculation.

"Nintendo have made no new announcements regarding The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. We can however confirm that the game is still in development and that it will launch on Nintendo GameCube in 2006."

So, a bit of wishful thinking there, according to Nintendo. But maybe there will turn out to be a grain of truth in the speculation eventually, you never know...
