Yesterday, whispers that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess would see a 3DS release began to surface. It began with 3DS owners receiving a StreetPass tag from a German 3DS owner that appeared to have been playing the game, which prompted a link to the game's eShop page. The rumor has since been confirmed fake, the image the result of a user hacking his 3DS system to make a custom message/image appear as his most recently played game, but it has caused bigger problems than mild disappointment for some 3DS owners. Those who got the StreetPass and investigated the eShop link have found their Nintendo Network accounts have a ban on them.
At least, that is what it looks like for now. More after the jump.
