Nintendo ON is real, whatever you have heard about the ON being fake is absolutely not true, even regarding the interview with Pablo Belmonte. Pablo is a complete fake, he did not make the video, we at Nintendo did using our own in house crew.
Pablo is a fan boy, three years ago he did make the Mario Universe fake video clip to bring some hype for upcoming Nintendo games, and we thank him for that. He does want to work for Nintendo, he approached Nintendo of America many years ago but NOA simply did not have a position for him at the time. We NOJ were very intrigued by Pablo’s outstanding work, especially for his age and the way in which he has taught himself to use all these different designing tools to create his extraordinary videos.
Nintendo leaked the ON clip especially to cause mass hype before E3 but has continued to stay quiet, there is a statement in a recent article about the ON clip on 1up.com and Perri Kaplin from NOA said ‘Who knows what comes next - virtual reality Nintendo gaming next, next generation?’ she says next generation, well as you already know this generation for Nintendo is still known as next generation as nothing has been officially released. This is a clue Nintendo is giving, I should know and I can tell you with all honesty it is the real deal.
Now, a week or so after my interview, 1up posted this feature on Pablo and the clip. They went into far more detail, outlining the exact timeframe of the production and even showing polygon grids of the models. After all this, it´s quite bold to claim it was real after all. Sure, the quality is almost unbelievable given one person worked on it for no more than a week. But (and this is just the first contention that springs to mind) an official video would never end that abruptly.
Anyway, we will know the truth about this guy shortly. I posted this comment:
Please tell me which hotel in Kyoto Nintendo uses for visits by NOA and NOE guests. It won´t show you up, if you answer. But I am in a position to verify this claim 100%. This info won´t be anywhere on the net. You should know though. If not, ask a colleague. The only reason for not answering would be not being who you claim to be. Thank you in advance.
Must say I´m feeling pretty smug about this. If he bothers to reply, I´ll call my contacts at Nintendo of Europe and find out about the hotel. If he doesn´t, we know already.
