Don't Hold Out Hope for That Netflix Zelda Series; Iwata Says It's Just a Rumor

In an interview with Time, Nintendo president Saruto Iwata crushed dreams and dispelled rumors that Netflix is involved with a Legend of Zelda tv show:

In early February, the Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix was developing a live-action series based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise. But Mr. Iwata says those rumors are inaccurate.

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information,” says Iwata.

The show's existence seemed questionable to begin with, but if you're desperate to keep hope alive, note that Iwata does say the rumors are "inaccurate" and not flat out false.  Maybe there is something in the works, just not with Netflix.  Or maybe Netflix is working on something for Nintendo, just not a Zelda series.  Or maybe nothing is happening at all.  There's that possibility too.

Since the release of Far Cry 4's cover art, internet sleuths have been trying to figure out everything they can about it; is that the player character? What's the deal with that aryan looking tool in purple? Creative Director Alex Hutchinson has done us the service of clearing some of it up:


Meanwhile, plot details for the game have supposedly leaked on a pre-order page for the game in the Uplay store. The now removed description of the game said:

In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.

The free Limited Edition upgrade includes Hurk's Redemption, a series of three-action packed single-player missions. You'll embark on an epic quest to find a rare artifact while using "The Impaler" harpoon gun.

I guess we'll just have to wait for E3 to find out what's going on with this game.
