A few days ago, we reported a rumor which offered ‘brand-new details’ about the Nintendo NX. This rumor was sourced back to the site of DualPixels, who originally reported the story, stating that they got the information from an informant who they’ve dealt with in the past. This informant does have a notably legit record, so this led to many sites, including our own, to spread the story around. After some snooping, it seems that this information may be somewhat tainted.
The great folks over at Nintendo Life have uncovered the fact that the information from that rumor was already posted all the way back in December of last year on 4chan. This goes to show that these details aren’t new at all. Now this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t still have the potential to turn out to be true, but this new development does cast some doubt on the leaker “Geno”. Nevertheless, speaking on the behalf of the entire Nintendo Enthusiast team, we do apologize. This is the tricky thing about rumors—you never really know what’s going to happen.
