Zelda Universe, a game registered by Nintendo, has appeared on the Entertainment Software Rating Board’s website and is listed as a game for the “online” platform.
The rest of Nintendo’s games are listed for specific platforms like the Nintendo DS and Wii — the company’s most popular consoles. The game doesn’t seem to be an online role-playing game like World of Warcraft, because those games are listed as games for the Macintosh and PC. Some online games like EVE Online are cross-linked as Macintosh and online games, while flash games like Sorry! are listed as exclusively online games.
If Nintendo is applying for a rating for the game, that means it is nearly complete. It could be a working title for Nintendo’s 3D remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is due for the Nintendo 3DS next month. But the title is not labeled as a Nintendo 3DS title, which other titles such as Cave Story 3D appear under on the ESRB’s website.
Huh, I wonder what on earth it is.
